    That's crazy...I thought I'd joined the upper crust when I bought jack stands and stopped working under the car propped up on rounds of firewood!

    A lift is the only way to roll, if you’re over a certain age, and like to work on your own cars. Definitely beats being on your back in the driveway.

    Well, we got a few bids back, and it seems like it might be a go.... I have been walking around the neighborhoods, checking out storage solutions, and mobile workshops.

    beer tap on the wall going out to the hot tub might be a later addition though :)

    Taps are seriously overrated, unless you’re really into pinching pennies. Who wants to drink the same beer, two nights in a row?

    TapS as in plural. Many taps. That plus a fridge full of whatever odd things you need to feel adequately exposed to sufficient variety.

    I’m a hot tubber too and I mostly tend to keep the hobbies separate. I don’t eat dinner in the tub either!

    We decided the hot tub was going to go below. Near the stove. That way in the winter we can go from hot tub to hot stove. That, and we got a free tub a month ago and wanted to start using it!

    Not many folks can say that. You meet all kinds, here.

    During “disassembly”, I presume?

    asbestos was removed yesterday.... only 2 weeks until the garage gas meter is moved (4 months after it was supposed to be). Looking at that roof, maybe i will try and salvage it...

    Looking good. Does the service come from the house or is it on it's own?

    electric service comes in on its own. no gas in the unit (although we will run a line for future), and water comes from the existing house. Had to upgrade to 1.25" water lines for the new fire suppression system.

    passed underground plumbing and radon inspection. Got the gravel spread out, and the insulation finished up this morning. Pouring the lower level slab and the rest of the deck footers scheduled for about 15 minutes from now... hopefully we passed inspection!
