I know.  I’ve been prattling on about this garage-building thing for a while now.  You’ve endured pictures of cement mixers and Typar-covered walls.  It will be weird to live without the carpenter’s trailer and a porta-potty next to my driveway.  Walter will have to adjust to a quiet workman-free existence.  We’ve had a lot going on around here, but now, it is done!!!  I promise I won’t talk about it anymore.  Even in this post.  I’ll just leave those of you who have been curious with a few pics and captions.


The final product featuring Steve Dionne, the man who made it all happen.



The cars’ first night in their new home.



A couple of pics of my new mudroom!


Woohoo!!!  It’s done!!

    1. Haha, those shelf brackets were put in at the very end. Steve had found some rather generic brackets figuring that being inside a closet, it wouldn’t be an issue, but it kept bugging me. I knew I had a crate of wrought iron brackets and when I presented them to him he thought they were pretty fancy for a closet. Haha, I told him even if I was the only one who saw them, it was worth the change. And it was! I love them, too.

    1. If you like that window, then you’d love the three on the facing wall. Haha! I love light. I have that very same color in a number of spots in my house. My Mom loved green and I like this particular sort of 50’s shade. It’s called “Slow Green.” The name always makes me laugh. I’m glad I’ve got the 3C Style stamp of approval! ❤️

        1. Oh, 9″ isn’t all that much here. It just started snowing again and we’ll probably get another 4 or 5 inches. Living in Maine is great…in the summer! And you are right. Spring can’t come fast enough. 🙂 ❤️


    1. I’m so happy you approve! Don’t those transom windows just make the building? When we were designing it, that was my big request. The rest of the house is a hovel but at least the garage and mudroom are nice!
