LOL! Our laundry room is just 5' x 8' and I'm willing to bet we've more laundry! Still at least we have one Rolling on the floor laughing Man! Japanese houses are soooo small! Still less housework I suppose. Nice to see your room all cleared of off-cuts, I never ceases to amaze me just how much is produced even from a small job, let alone one on the scale of yours, boggles the mind! Confused

Yesterday I had to remove my side gate and trellis to facilitate parking of a second car at the side of the house as DW has a drivers licence now and of course want's her own car! Compact living here. Sticking tongue out Under Japanese law you can't own a car without a parking space off road. Then the roads are so narrow! Keep up the good work Cheryl for this is something very special we all wanna see, even come and see! God I wish I lived in Texas! Group hug
Jon.

How exciting for your DW Jon ..
the size of my laundryroom now is 5x6 (kind of ) and with washer, dryer & deep freeze in it you have to go in with a plan Rolling on the floor laughing if something breaks it has to be removed from the room to be worked on Whistling

Oh Cheyl, I see that now...still like the milk paint leaning anyway. I don't much like painted wood at all but that works for me in some applications. I have to do it on the stair risers (one of these days) because they were carpet over oak but even with good sanding equipment, there is some unrecognizable 'white stuff' that I cannot get off the risers.

Repairs, hummm...yes, tomorrow perhaps (the furnace is scheduled for Friday ...the others I will do as I am so inspired), I have brought much up from the basement for cleaning and disposal, that's the icky part but has to get priority or mildew and unidentifiable critter may ensue.

Jon...I wondered when you showed PIX of your nice pristine street how cars would park there....I understand now.

HA! Cheryl! When I bought the house and was still fishing and buying meat in bulk, I got a great big freezer for free. The guys that moved it down there said, "it's down there now but it's never coming up". It's totally inefficient and I haven't used it for years or will I ever...but they were right! Whoever get this house next, gets a free freezer! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Yep...mine's a closet too! Maybe a 'selling point': "Airtight closet 'safe' on the lower level". (works as well as "Eat-in-kitchen' translates to "no dining room").

that was easy now how do you paint the tops of 340 bolts with out taking days to do it .. my first choice was stick them in the holes and paint when painting the braces but the wholes are to big to hold up:thumbsdown: then drill some holes in a board .. would work but take much to long ... thanks JC for another work smarter idea Hurray!
( my DH is so smart :hearts:)

Where is she? ...and will she ride in the back? Inky seats upright passenger. (So funny because I frequently talk with him or put my arm around him and with his long curly ears....well, we have gotten the strangest stares when people in the other lane 'catch-up' in a light and see his face!
