Okay folks. Here are the latest photos of the garage project. Try to contain yourselves, they’re causing quite a bit of excitement around here.

Doesn’t it look like a little log-cabin playhouse without the paint and trim? The Peanut was convinced that we’d built her the best toy ever.

Those stylish wooden beams are going to be exposed, which is why we’ve gone to all the effort of making them look so nice. And those hard-core brackets mounted to the framing? Custom-made for the Sweetie Pie by a furniture-building, torch-wielding friend of his. The Sweetie Pie has some heavy equipment, but there’s not a chance of these work tables collapsing.

Next up? The garage begins to look like an actual structure with insulation, drywall, doors, and windows. Stay tuned.
