Baby It's Cold Outside

During our first year of construction, we built a garage so there would be a sheltered place to work. Since the garage is meant to eventually house vehicles, we decided it didn’t need to be insulated. Now that we are working in Torrey throughout the year, we can see (or should I say feel?) what might be the benefits of a little insulation in the garage walls.

Our next winter house project is to make the inside trim for the windows. This is a detailed process, but, right now, the main challenge is the temperature.

As you can see, it is a balmy seven degrees outside. That equates to a balmy little-above-seven degrees in the garage. And the garage houses our woodworking tools - table saw, joiner, sanders, etc.

This heat wave necessitates the appropriate attire: down parka, down vest, insulated gloves, winter hat, eye protection and ear protection.

  Awkward but comfortably toasty...

  1. I have always been a fan of painted floors. These are wonderful examples of how a painted floor can really make a statement in a room. Thank you so very much for the mention. It truly was my pleasure to feature your work on my blog!
