Default Time to start building again!

I haven't been able to build since I moved into our new house in August. Mostly because I didn't have a spot to work.

I claimed a small space in the corner of the basement and built myself a new workshop.

here are a few almost finished pics...







Going to order a new computer today to set up in there so I'll never have to leave!

nice looking getaway. i wish i had an area like that to claim just for working on stuff. i got a garage which is insulated but not heated so the winter is pretty cold out there. my mancave aka basement has the couch computer tv beerfridge laundry room storage space fireplace and not much room for a workspace. maybe i can set up a lil area in the corner.

About time

Way too clean, you need to start a project to break it in. And yeah, then it'll still be way too clean, but with a project in it.

I'm hoping to get one started here really soon

**edit, and the $560 order I just spent at RPP will probably help... Good thing he has fast shipping, I'm on vacation this week

I bought a house this year, so I opted to take the 7500 loan thing..

A couple bucks toward R/C, and the rest is going toward finishing the rest of the basement...
