    All for me!!

    Back in January DH came with me to see about a shed that I would turn into my own personal sewing/quilting place. Long story short, for a little extra I could also have garage space for my car. We ordered said double garage, organised with company for slab to be laid. Then it started to rain.

    Shed is finally completed. Then trenches for drainage and electricity had to be dug. Long process as DH was doing this bit. Finally threatened to bring in professionals. Amazingly work moved along after that. Long story short and more pics, I hopefully will be able to start moving in this weekend or early next week. Security bars on windows and side door. Pics later.

    oO I want one!!!!!!! I have a ton of questions!
    1. What are the dimensions?
    2. Will you insulate?
    3. How will you heat it in winter?
    4. How much does it cost!?!
    5. I wonder how much it will raise taxes...

    You could PM me the answers, I know it's rude to ask how much & all but I'm really interested in the idea of having a space w/windows and the only way I would get that is doing something like this

    How exciting!! And your car can fit!! I can't even get my car in my garage...DH "stores" everything in there. But before winter hits him & my DS will be giving my space back!! Hope you enjoy your own "little" world!!
