Back in February, so much has happened since then! my pre-made garage was delivered. It was made by Mennonite folks down in Statesville, NC, Old Hickory Buildings, and it’s been a gem! It’s gone through some changes, for the better, and yesterday, Daniel and his brother David, came up and gave me some additional help. Farmer John has a dump truck and, a few months ago, he and I went across the mountain where I purchased several tons of gravel for the driveway. Eventually, more gravel will be purchased to fill in the empty spots and make it less muddy to walk from garage and driveway to the house.
The garage was turned from facing down the driveway to facing the driveway. When I approach the building, I come up the driveway and turn right, into the garage. WOOHOO! It may not seem like much to you but, trust me, it’s been doings around here! The dual lights are dusk to dawn…lovely…and Sam P. Spade, Secret Agent, approves…very important!
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time, putting things to order and…should I be ashamed to admit, my garage is in better organized shape than the house?
No, the building isn’t listing but I was so excited and didn’t take good care when taking the photo. My apologies. The shepherd’s hook pumpkin is to let me know when I can, safely, turn toward, or away from, the garage. I’d hate to run into the concrete block wall and damage my vehicle. A garage was something on the “to-do” list Dave and I were constantly amending. Unfortunately, prior to his death, we never got around to it, but having it now is lovely, warm, dry and safe. My tools have a home, the car is put to bed every night, there’s light enough for the garage, driveway and walk to the house. It may seem like a little thing but it’s a huge thing…and I am so grateful!
