DH and His Man Cave--2 WIPs

DH is going through some changes. He's decided to "retire" at the age of 49--I hope it's a temporary thing. Anyway, he, a few buddies and one of our sons have been puttering around in the garage for probably a couple months now making it into a man cave. Here's a few pictures of the status of one of these projects as of today:

The Garage Door Spring Was Painted Too.

Some Trim to Go Somewhere

Our house is an older one--built ca 1959. The attached garage was built in 1969. Up until 2 years ago, there was no way to go from the house to the garage. We got rid of a few closets and built a hallway that led to a new door into the garage.  There was no drywall, nor was there a ceiling in the garage previous to dh's middle-age crisis. With a house this old, there is always something to do but it has good solid "bones" to work with. 

Have a great weekend and enjoy the holiday....

  1. Looks like they're doing a good job so far. :)

  2. Looks like it's going to be a cool man's cave and enjoying some father son bonding time. :-)

  3. They are doing a good job so far. DH has resisted drywall projects until this one and he's done a very good job. Yep, it is a good bonding time for the son and my husband. My son is very talented with home improvement, remodeling projects and it is great when he comes over and helps out. Love my big kiddo :)
