New Garage – Days 31 & 32

Yesterday the framers came again and began the little roof over the walk-in door at the side of the garage. As this roof had not been in the original drawings but only later pencil-sketched in, it had somehow escaped our attention and the builder’s and thus it had not been done together with the framing of the garage itself but had to be added now.

Neue Garage – Tag 31 & 32

Gestern sind die Zimmerleute noch einmal zuückgekommen und haben das kleine Dach über der seitlichen Eingangstür zur Garage angefangen. Da das Dach nicht in den Originalplänen war, sondern erst nachträglich als Bleistiftskizze hinzugefügt worden war, war es dann später unserer und des Architekten/Bauunternehmers Aufmerksamkeit entgangen und war daher nicht sofort zusammen mit der Garage selber erledigt worden, sondern musste erst jetzt nachträglich angebaut werden.

And the painters finished their job of the inside of the garage:

Und die Anstreicher sind mit dem Innenanstrich der Garage fertig geworden:

Today the framers finished the roof over the walk-in door and this is what it looks like now:

Heute sind die Zimmerleute mit dem Dach über der Seitentür fertig geworden und so sieht es jetzt aus:

  1. That sure is a pretty garage!!

    • Hi Rhythm
      Thanks for the positive opinion. 🙂 We like it, too, and sometimes we joke that we should just go and live in the garage and rent out the house. 😉
      Have a great evening and some good rain, but no thunderstorm,

  2. It really is a gorgeous garage! I would love something similar (as it is now, I just like to pretend the garage doesn’t exist, and I hate going in there).

    • Hi Sarah,
      Thanks for the praise. We like our new garage, too. Our present one is maybe like yours: a room we don’t like that much. It’s mainly used for storage, not for our car, and the kitties have their abode there. Plus, when it’s cold like now, Chiquita, our little dog.
      Somehow we seem to like building garages. Here’s our fairly new one we built 4 years ago in Karnes City: http://tinyurl.com/mjcse92
      Have a great weekend,

      • That is EXACTLY like my garage. I think it I had a garage hooked to the house, I would be more inclined to keep it nice. Though the new husband suggested he would take care of it at our new house. So perhaps there is hope for the garage after all!

        • We hope to be able to tidy up the existing garage, which is tied to the house, after we have the new one, with the storage in the attic. And maybe the kitties will get moved to our little garden shed. We’re planning a cat flap there. Chiquita will get a dog flap for the big garage. For the workshop, actually, which will have AC and heating. And then … we’ll MAYBE have a tidy garage at the house. 😉

  3. Love this garage, Pit! So very well built. Thank you for sharing the progress. 🙂

    • Hi Amy,
      I’m glad you like it. 🙂 Maybe you’ll be able to see it some time soon. I haven’t forgotten about maybe meeting here in “Fritztown”. Possibly between Thanksgiving and Christmas? Let’s see.
      Have a great Sunday,
      Pit

      • Sure. We can find a weekend to meet . We are going to Dallas for Thanksgiving with our daughter, Greg, and two little monsters. 🙂

        • My wife will be in California for Thanksgiving and a few more days, visiting with her daughter, while I’ll be taking care of our “zoo” here. Let’s see what’ll be going on after Turkey Day.

  4. The craftsmanship is beautiful! Nice job!

  5. Schön schaut sie aus. Innen so wie außen. Die blaue Farbe innen gefällt mir gut.
    Ich glaube, ich ziehe bei Euch in die Garage ein. 🙂
    LG Gabi

    • Blau fuer eine Garage innen ist ja wirklich eher wie ein Wohnhaus. Aber gefaellt uns auch. Und wir juxen auch manchmal, dass wir ja in der Garage wohnen und das Haus vermieten koennten. 😉
      LG, Pit
