Very nice work and alot of it, you are doing there... great tools by the way..
am curious where you got your bathroom cabinets.... love the colours.
I hope your boy is joining in where he can... I helped (got in the way) my dad when I was about 6 on... the house was about 100 yrs. old when the folks purchased it... heating, plumbing and electrical went in before we moved in and all else done throughout a 6 -8 yr period..
those were the days..
also impressed with the 3 bays in the garage.. great space.

I got them through a local home improvement supplier. They are made by Prestige cabinets. They are all rustic maple.

How do you like the Bellawood maple? We have Brazilian Cherry in our kitchen and I'm looking for a lighter wood for the rest of the house.

Love it. One of the nicest features of the house and was relatively easy thing to install.

My wife and are must be odd cause we love the rustic wood. The more knots and color the better.

Thanks. The rustic may have a little too much color variation for our house. We may go with the natural or select. Looks great. I have garage envy.

Why all the connections/outputs on the front of the house?
I know you wouldn't want them on the back with the way it is
But I would have tried to put at least some on the side

Or are you going to plant shrubs etc to hide them
