Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and got finished what you set out to do on Friday. Let's get started. Saturday: I was up at the crack of dawn and prepared for the arrival of my father-in-law. At 9:00am the blue F-150 was here and after a briefing and breakfast, off to the big lumbar store. I went a little above budget and picked up enough 2X4s to complete this and another project, some paneling and screws and adhesive. Sticker shock wasn't as bad as a I thought. Once home, I tore down the brackets and plywood and salvaged everything. By 11:00am I was left with this... Ugly, isn't it? I put the floor in when I moved in years ago but those walls. At least we never have to decorate for Halloween. We first started with framing out two walls with the 2X4's then carefully cutting the panels to size. By 7:00pm we were finished with stage one. Big difference. I still need to install the ceiling panel but that and molding will come later. Now with a finished wall, I will be able to build a 6-foot by 6-foot L shaped layout over the fall and winter. We cooked some meat on the grill and enjoyed some corn on the cob and called it a day. Sunday: Was a restful day. We went to Angela's grandmas and took her and Angela's dad to lunch for helping the day before. The pizza place we went to is a train themed restaurant with a G scale train that runs throughout the establishment. Pretty neat. We stopped to pick up more construction adhesive, then back to Grandmas to watch the NASCAR race. Then off to drop of Ang's station wagon for some maintenance and drive the Mustang home. It was nice to drive the Mustang again. Once home, I had to clean the office from the day before as well as the garage so as to get the Mustang in safe and sound. We finished the day with Star Trek and popcorn. Overall, a very productive weekend. So how about you? What did you get done this weekend? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Friday the 29th to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great week, stay healthy, be safe and as always... High Greens!
