Default Well, not exactly my favorite type of wood working...

But when the Grandbabies and the Grandbabies Momma needs something, you do it!! ;o)

I (and my Son), built them a new utility room. Houses hot water heater, washer and dryer. My son built the first one 6 or 7 years ago, when his babies Momma (they no longer together) purchased, a new house. Unfortunately, it was a two bedroom and they have a boy and a girl. So my Son, being a plumber, told her he could move the hot water heater, washer and dryer, outside and make the utility/laundry room into another bedroom. So that he did! But he didn't use any treated wood on the deck of the shed, and it rotted away and started falling over. So I offered to help, on this one, and he laughed and said that she probably couldn't afford something I want to build (As I seem, to them, to have gone overboard on the materials I used on my shop). But I promised I'd make a drawing, a materials list and get prices on all the wood. It's 4' x 8' and only three walls, since it rest against the house. It only ran her a little over two hundred. Took us two evenings after work, and one Saturday to remove the old one and put this one together. As we prefabbed the three walls. She loves it!! Even built her some shelving in there, she didn't have before to store her soap powder and stuff!!

I like that, it is a type of construction I have never seen before.

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Yeah, I was pondering that too until I realized they were sort of bi-fold doors making a wall? Had me going for a minute there.
