Our New Truck!

After searching for months, I finally convinced Rob to spend a Saturday test driving different trucks and make a decision what kind/style he actually wanted.  So last Saturday we went out, in the pouring rain, visiting lot after lot and driving truck after truck.  We found one we loved, but of course the price was a little too steep.  Finding the style he loved was all the motivation Rob needed.  By the middle of the next week, he had found one similar to the one we test drove for thousands less. 
On the day after Thanksgiving we drove down to Battle Ground, WA to buy the truck.  Rob spent this Saturday cleaning it up and making it shine.  We both love the way it drives and look forward to being able to now tow the snowmobiles in style!

Storage Space

Our garage is constantly changing as Rob come homes with new Craigslist finds, and with constant and ongoing projects. We are always looking for new ways to increase the storage space in our tiny little home. Our garage ceiling is really high, and there is a lot of wasted space above the garage door. Rob came up with the idea of creating a storage system that would go directly above the garage doors. After much searching, we finally came up with a system that was easy to use, easy to create, and best of all, cheap! Using I-beams and uniform storage containers, this is what we ended up with.




Good Job Rob!
