Trading places, Part 2

Everything is in position!

Everything is proofed for my fathers approval on sunday (so clean, no hobby stuff showing etc) and next week I can clear out the cabinets again as everything is just thrown inthere to get it out of the way - no system what so ever. And I have to remove the flying turtle and put it up in the kids room of course. And I see I left the Woezen and Pip sunscreen there too :D Ok, small things to do on saturday then, but the basics are finished!

Hurah!

Kim said she is proud of me having accomplished so much in such a short period even with my handicap and my bad knee and back, she is overwhelmed. <happy dance>

  2. Well done mate! It looks like a very practical and pleasant room. Nice to see the results of really quite an epic undertaking.

    1. I'm still going at it, assembling the Ikea cabinets now, picking up lumber tomorrow for the bottom and top and will do my best to get the bare, unpainted frame ready by sunday afternoon at the latest. Then I will have to start thinking about the 2 part table and how to latch it together to go on top of this. You any ideas?

  3. This looks like a great room to spend time and relax in.
    It made all the hard work that much more worth it.

    1. There is a lot more hard work to do before it is truly finished Wouter, but the base is solid.

    1. Thx John, yes, it helps a lot. Problem she is now planning what to do next time the kids spend a week at my parents (next month) and she's mentioned completely stripping the garage and throwing out as much as possible so we have a more roomy and well sorted place. I'm actually all for it, I just want to get this done first!
