Just wanted to sort of finalize this thread. The Garage exterior is 99.5% done. Once I got past the final inspection I had to move on to other projects, like getting my back yard re-enclosed with a new fence; not to mention other honey-doo projects that have been pretty time consuming. I also take at least a month off in the summer from projects to spend the summer with my son that comes to visit each summer for the month or so.
This first shot shows the side facing the house, and you can see between the ends, the door, and window, where Betty has planted 3 climbing rose bushes. I still have to put up some kind of nice trellis (sp) for them.
I said 99.5% done, because I still have to finish the sofits and eaves, put some outside sconce lighting on each side of the large garage door. Here's the rest of the pics, and a few of the new fence I built. Those of you that made fun of my falling down fence will be happy to see how my new one turned out. I still have a little staining to do on the inside, and to finish the slats on one corner of the house where we extended the fence out a little.
The interior still needs to be completely finished out, including insulation, my AC unit, sheetrock, a lot more lights, and lots of shelving and bench area. With that in mind, I'll wait to show any pics of the interior
