    A little roomier than the original location and much more roomier than that sardine can.

    Hoping to break the log-jam in the garages. The cars (Firebrid & Caddy) are still surrounded by boxes, even after months of trying to figure out where to put them. Two decisions were made today:

    1. My wife and I decided that we need to build a detached storage garage behind the house to hold all of the $#!+ blocking up the main garage and shop.

    2. After discussing it with my wife, I have decided to retire on the last Friday in March.

    Spring and Summer should be very productive.

    More storage equals more accumulation:whistle:.

    I thought when you move you reduce not expand:whistle:.

    Congrats on the retirement decision(y).

    Retirement - when you become so busy that you wonder how you ever found time to go to work.

    Well, if the first week is any indication, you are so very right! I've been busier every day this week than I ever was at work, but I'm loving it!

    Any Firebrid fever yet or still working through the "Honey-Do" list?

    Congratulations. Glad you have a purpose for getting out of bed. My father-in-law also said he didn't know he'd be so busy. And I'm about nine months away from that state myself.

    Just signed the contract for the new 20'x20' Storage Garage this morning that will be sitting at the back of my driveway. They are telling me it should be done by the 4th of July. :)

    Firebrid fever, oh yeah. I wish it good night every night and sit in it about once per week. Until all of my other family member's "schtuff" moves out of my shop I'm relegated to finding and organizing tools and parts. At least all of the wardrobe boxes are now sitting next to the roll door waiting for that new storage garage... (If you have a daughter, you'll understand.)

    The gargantuan lawn tractor I got from my sister is going out in the storage garage too. It's bigger than a Smart Car!

    Try not to have Firebrid fireworks on the 4th of July. :eek:

    I know the feeling. We had to put up an aluminum carport to house our old Farmall row crop tractor for the vegetable garden, The garden definitely helps with healthier eating though. It has been over a year since we have bought onions or some other vegetables. Now ae are starting to tend chickens to produce our own eggs.
