It seems like each of our kids has brought
some kind of project. With Matthew we
built our house...with Allyssa we added a
deck, and with Quinn we added a garage.
We had two rooms in our house taken up
with the kind of stuff most people stick in
garages (Christmas stuff, hand-me down
clothes, supplies, luggage in waiting, etc.).
With the economy down, it seemed like a
good time to put in a garage and free up
those rooms for the growing kids. It took
a lot longer than we expected however (for
a simple post frame building), as we
signed the contract mid-April and the final
checklist was sent just before
It's really a large garage, almost the floor
area of our house. It still has no heat, no
electricity, and we don't even have the
ramp poured. But we were able to carve
out a true "kids" room in the house and
still keep a "Den" and guest room. So feel
free to pop by for a visit (if you can handle
three crazy kids!).
