The Off Season
Usually during the off season I build something to cook with. In recent years I have made a sous vide cooker, a rotisserie, and my chicken cooker. This year I've decided to focus my energy on something else. This room. We built an addition on our house in 2005. This addition had plans for a bonus room over the garage. It's a good size room measuring in at 15' X 25' and over the years we've used it as storage. But, anyone who knows us knows we don't really like too much clutter. (watching the show Hoarders puts me into shock!) So having this room dedicated for 'stuff' seems like a waste. So after a trip to Goodwill and one to the dump, I was ready to get to work. It's a pretty straight forward job; a little framing, a little electrical and heating, then sheetrock and paint. Kris already has the furniture, rug, and paint picked out, so things should go reasonably quick. At the end of it all we should end up with a nice guest bedroom...unless Maggie likes it, then it's all hers.
