in the big dog house

Postby hockeystuff54 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 9:44 am



since i retired i though i would find a hobby that i could enjoy and since i rode motorcycles in my younger day ,i thought rebuilding a bike would be fun and keep me amused ,so i purchased a 1980 honda goldwing for a good price and brought it home,she like the idea and then as i started to reseach and decide that i needed a place to work on it since my garage is full with a 1949 ford restoration ,i decded to build a shop.started out as a 16 x20 heated shop where i could have just the bike and my tools ,beer fridge ,and a good bench ,welllllllll things went wrong somewhere along the line and i now have a 36 x28 two story garage (not finished yet ) and a wife that growls every time i look at her ,my good idea has become the biggest dog house in town, :o :o
some days it just dont pay to get outta bed

But it will be worth it when you are done!! A man cave or dog house can never be big enough!! You have the rest of your life to fill it with unfinished projects!! :lol: Of course if the wife is not happy, the rest of your life could be much shorter than you think, or seem to last an eternity!! :oops:

Once it's finished and your out from under her feet she'll come to like it, as long as her new carpet, kitchen, dishwasher, etc haven't made way for your new bench, drill, welder and all those other essentials!

I hear ya,....I have a 28x36...
- one bay is wife's glass shop where she does stained glass and beads, all walled in and heated
- middle bay is a buncha crap, and I have to find a way to get it outa there
- far bay is my bike, bench, and riding lawnmower.

I hear about the dog house, the only real issue right now is her music and mine clashing, but I can turn my stereo really loud ;)

And the first time during one of your Canadian winters that she needs something fixed on her car and you say "Honey, just pull it into the garage and I'll get it fixed pronto", she'll change her tune immediately and that'll be that.

You just gotta know how to work the system. ;)

i just hope that when its done that i get all my junk in there before her,retail therapy is one of her hobbies ,but i have to agree its great to have the space and the room to do these projects,makes working on stuf enjoyable ,the cold beer helps too,they always say you can never have enough storage space ,besides if she ever kicks me out my house will be way bigger than hers ,
