So much work but it was all worth it

Final touch will be next spring... I'm going to do a paver patio with firepit in the corner that looks all dilapidated.
Great job....really love the lighting!

Thanks man! It really wasn't that hard to do either, the hardest part was burying the cable from the transformer across the yard.

So I need some ideas. Tree fell on the old deck/stairs and it's all replaced now, but we never had an "awning" or gate at the bottom. That cross member needs something

The gate will have to go with the first snow

Finally got the garage all painted (except for the stairs) and the storage boards up that I bought for a steal. 208 sq ft of the paneling in total in the garage.

The most similar thing I can find online would be this.

Although there is a Bed Bath and Beyond going out of business near me. I went in and asked what they were doing with their fixtures, ended up buying a whole wall of their industrial display boards. I also got a few boxes of all of the different attachments for hanging things like the baskets and whatnot. I got ~320 sq ft. of this and more hangers than I will ever use for under $200. All in all, quite the steal. I also have a 4'x8' board down over my workbench for most of my tools.

This is kinda embarrassing but since doing the reno and addition on my house, the basement has become a catch all for crap. My wife has a booth at an antique mall and we buy and sell a lot of MCM furniture so the basement has turned into our storage area/work shop and it has gotten out of control. We started organizing and cleaning last night and our first area was the work bench.

Before.

And after an hour and one giant trash bag later.

Then we started cleaning of my project car and the surrounding area. This started Sunday actually, when I moved my tool box from the basement to the attached garage.

Untitled by Nick Wood, on Flickr

My 1974 Bmw 2002 storage unit..... This poor thing needs some attention.

Untitled by Nick Wood, on Flickr

And cleaned off and pushed as far back and out of the way as possible, taking up the space where my tool box used to sit. This will soon be leaving the house and heading to my dads shop once the e9 is finished and we sell the Jeep XJ wagoneer and Cherokee Chief.

We still have a long way to go but it was nice to start getting this re-organized.

Thanks folks.

It was pretty easy to make it look better than it was. Lol.

We bought the place in 2006 during the first market boom here. One open house, 20 bids.

Original shape 1967 house, with condemned decks due to rot. First project I did was the decks.

A year before that laundry reno, we did the landscaping and I built a treehouse for my son.

Levelled back yard, hedge, trampoline pit, treehouse with attic and decks, terraced front yard, new pathways and stairs, and irrigation throughout.

Before....small pics





After









The other side of the back yard I build a large river rock pit with a trampoline, but I can’t find a picture of it.

Not any more. He actually auctioned it off a few years to fellow Lions, but they refused to follow winter shut-down procedures (drain water to protect pipes) and we had to make the 3-hour each way trip to do it for them

Also, we can't find the keys to the ATVs Honda says we have to swap the ignition. I don't have the manual dexterity to do that in 20 weather. So it may be next Spring before we can ride again.

Ha, believe it or not, they are IKEA.
I made higher “support feet” for them, so I could get them high enough to put the counter right over the washer and dryer. Counter is about 1.5” higher than normal.
I had to make my own kick plate under the cabinets due to increasing the height.

that was a steal of a deal! Slat-Wall all the way for organization in the garage imho. I went with www.pro-slat.com their PVC model is more affordable than aluminum, then again it depends how much area you want to cover.

Awesome, nice work!

I'm guessing the paint color for the kick plate was custom matched to the cabinets?
