Garage Re-model

So I know.....long time.....no post. I feel like we haven't been up to too much lately but with the weather warming up I'm sure we will be doing more. This weekend it felt like we were outside from sun-up to sun-down. Matt has been working on a project for a long time in the garage. He calls it "finishing" the garage eventhough it looked finished to me. According to him there was a crappy job done on the drywall tape when it was built so he ripped all that down and re-did it. He also added an outlet to a wall that had none and we did some major re-organization. Our garage does not always look as clean as the pics show, all of our stuff was in the driveway and we are considering getting a shed sooner than later. I helped him paint the walls and ceiling this weekend. It took several coats of paint and seriously took all day Friday and Saturday. We are both content not painting for a very long time. It looks great and like a brand new garage.

After


So you would think that we would just have a lazy Sunday but we have already dug into our next major project....literally. We are updating our landscaping. Our house had a lot of really great existing landscaping when we bought it but a lot of the edging was worn and the mulch is pretty much non-existent. So those are the two things we are working on now. Today we have ripped up everything old, made a trip to Menards, and started laying down new landscape fabric. Considering how much area we have to cover we have made a big dent and will probably be finished next weekend. I will post pics then.

I know! The more and more he figures out that he is capable of the more and more I think of doing. Bad for him, good for me:)
