Open Garage Hardware (and software) prototype v2

One of my goals this year is to become more proficient at Python programming.  It’s something that I keep dancing around the edges of but I’ve never just dived right into it head first.  I was having some issues getting motivated about it so I decided to try and find a way to make it…

Project Laundry Room – The build

It occurred to me that I didn’t really spend much time talking about the process of building the cabinets for the laundry room so I thought I’d do a quick write up on that.  The project started here with a set of plans my wife drew up for what she wanted.  The ask was pretty…

Adventures in HVLP spraying

 My wonderful wife has selected the next project for me to work on after finishing the laundry room and Im excited to get started on it.  However – I wasn’t entirely happy with how the finish on the cabinets came out in the laundry room.  I had sprayed latex paint with my HVLP gun…

Korean BBQ beef

One of my resolutions for this year was to be more adventurous in my cooking.  So today I tried a recipe for Korean BBQ beef burritos.  While burritos themselves are not adventurous, the meat selection for me was.  I found a recipe online for how to make the BBQ beef in the slow cooker mistakenly…

Being healthier

2017 in review

So….  Here we are – the first day of 2018.  Looking back at 2017 and how I did at ‘doing the things’ I have mixed feelings.  While I believe that this is still a good idea, I didn’t really pull it off.  I was successful in the early part of the year at learning about…

Project Laundry room – Done

Looking at the last post, I see I started this project on October 3rd.  3 months of work to get to where we are now which is much much too long.  But oh well – it can’t be helped – things at work got extremely busy and I just didn’t have the time.  To be…

Project Laundry Room

Now that the garage is done, I now have some time to work on some smaller projects.  My lovely wife has asked that I look into installing some cabinets in the laundry room above the washer and dryer.  Currently theres just a wire shelf above the laundry machines… The picture is poor but its hard…

The garage is done

After 5 months of work – the garage is at a point where Im calling it done.  There are certainly little things here or there that need finishing – but from a usability perspective we’re back to having a garage.  Here are some pictures that show the work from various angles… Here you can see…
