Another day, another trip to Lowes. Well last night Amber and I made another trip to Lowes and we now believe we have almost all we need to get this project finished. We just have to come up with some free time. HA. That is not going to happen soon. Amber’s friend Brandi is coming into town this weekend so I do not know what we will get done but we will try. We did manage to get a few pieces of paneling up this weekend so it is starting to get some closure. Updates to follow soon.

Amber has been VERY upset lately as there has been very little progress on her shop. Well we worked some today and were able to get some of the paneling installed. Progress has really slowed down. I am still hopeful that we will be open soon. Well now we see that we need some more stuff from Lowes. Go figure. Oh well one more trip to the store.


It has been a busy weekend so far. This morning I went to the Grand Opening of the Apple Store West County in the newly renovated West County Westfield Mall. It was quite exciting. Phil and Sara, my sister-in-law, accompanied me. We had a blast seeing all the new Apple products. I am still in LOVE with the iPod and will get one someday. Also the next Mac that Amber and I purchase will be the new 17” flat panel iMac. It is really sweet. We also were able to see the 23” Apple Cinema High Definition flat panel display. It is HUGE. You can see two FULL pages of a document on screen at one time and READ them. I must have one at work. Someday :).

 Next I came home and had to go to school to finish programming my robot. My partner and I were able to get it finished today. That is great since we present it on Monday. It should work well. We will see.

More work completed this weekend. We now have another wall in front. We will begin working on the inside this week. I will prepare the supports for the ceiling we are going to put in and finish some more wiring we need to get completed.

All is moving along. Seems I can only talk about the shop. Well that is about all we are up to at this time. We spent this morning putting up the front wall. Tomorrow we should finish up the wall and put the siding on. Then we can really get started on the inside. We have put up the main wall inside but we need to start on the ceiling supports and finishing the walls inside with drywall and paneling.

More progress this weekend. We were able to get a good start on the interior walls. We now have two walls framed and in place. We will soon be finishing the exterior opening of the shop. We need to make a run to Lowe’s for some supplies.

On another hand, we have ordered and received our setup to connect to a local high-speed wireless internet service provider. We ordered service from DTNspeed.net. We have to assemble and hook up the connection and we will be surfing at blazing speeds. The service uses 802.11b wireless networking. We are sure to be very happy campers at home now.


Always smoother the second time, well all went well and we now have two thirds of the concrete poured for our garage. We can now get started finishing the framing and starting with the interior finishing of ambers shop. We still have a lot to do but we are seeing the end is approaching now. New pictures will soon follow.

Well we have had a busy weekend. Amber and I attended our friends’ daughter's first birthday. It was lots of fun. The birthday girl was sooo tired after the party was over. Then we spent the rest of the weekend preparing for the next pour of concrete in the shop for Amber. We will pour at 8:00 AM tomorrow. I will keep you updated.
