Well, our remodeling project has been going on for a while now, and we finally got all the walls up...kind of. By all the walls I mean all the exterior walls.
Anyway, since it is freezing out side I thought I would take a few pictures of our progress thus far and show them to you. Oh, I am also going to include a photo of two of my favorite tools ever invented.
This is a photo of my new tool closet/bowling ball/ fishing gear cubby!
I am so excited that I will finally have a safe place to put my three or four tools along side my fly rod and tackle. It's going to be awesome!

This is a photo of where our new washer and dryer are going to go.
I am thinking that a few wall cabinets and a few shelves might go up as well.
I was going to include a photo of the main entryway, but like the dolt that I am I forgot to take the picture and am too lazy to get back up and take it, so you are going to have to imagine it. It's an 8' x 7' space that looks pretty similar to where the laundry area is but it has two doors in it.
Now, here are my two favorite tools in the whole world!
|This is Mr. Fix it for when I screw up my measurements!|
I can't tell you how awesome reciprocating saws are! One gets used here probably on a daily basis because it is so handy and can cut just about anything anywhere, and I am constantly screwing up my measurements if I bother to measure at all, so it is my go-to tool when I need to fix a mistake.
Luckily, only a few of those have been made since I let my father in law worry about the measuring crap.
|This is dubbed my "Thor" hammer I use it for just about |
everything that I don't use the reciprocating saw for.
My second favorite tool is my 3 pound "finishing" hammer.
Now, all hammers are cool because with out them things like houses couldn't be built, but this hammer is by far the coolest.
I use it for just about everything; framing, roofing, finished work, breaking rocks or concrete,you name it. The only problem is if I happen to miss the nail and hit my thumb or something it really jacks my thumb up, but luckily I have it fairly well trained not to do that.
I have also noticed that since I have been using it my right arm seems to have grown bigger around than my left. Either that or my left arm has shrunk. I don't know. Either way it is a weird phenomenon.
P.s. Yes, I realize that my rock hammer isn't supposed to be used for anything that I am using it for, but I can't help it! It is just too damn cool not to use it for everything!
P.P.s. I am also extremely thankful for caulk.
