What's Bob been working on?

I have to share with you something Bob's been working on for a while. He started doing some work on our garage last summer, but had to quit in the winter; Michigan winters aren't conducive to working in an unheated space!
So this summer he was back at it and it's all done now.



He had built some cabinets, one in the back corner...



And he built more cabinets in the other back corner.




He put up drywall all around the garage, added trim and painted.  On the far wall he hung some old tools he found in my Dad's barn and an old seed spreader from his Dad.




On the wall with the door into the house, he put up this shiplap.






We got a new light to put up by the entry door.




And here's the finished wall.  The garage looks much nicer and has lots of storage too!  Good job, Bob!

I am totally impressed! It all looks so good! Are the cabinets made of wood? They almost look like sleek metal. He is very talented.

Wow! Those cabinets are fantastic. Bob is really good at building and carving things. The front of your house is so nice looking. You reminded me that I should get a new light fixture on the front of my house:)

Wouah! I wish I had my garage like yours! You’re lucky it is nice and useful. ( feeling a little better today) tomorrow my son in law is coming to work in our kitchen.

Wow! Thats really nice! He made himself a space to really enjoy spending time in! When we lived in our other house, I wanted Rich to do something like that to our garage but he wasn't interested!

Bob's been busy! Beautiful work. I'm very fond of cabinets because I lack storage space. I love the color and the shiplap. Happy Thanksgiving!

He is such a wonder when it comes to the talent he has for so many things. The garage looks amazing!

Good job indeed! The entrance to the house looks better than most people's front doors. Now I'm feeling very insecure about that fact that last summer, you all saw the inside of our garage. Haaaahahahaha xoxo

Does Bob hire out?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have some garages that sure could use that kind of love!! I'd say excellent work and that Bob deserves extra pumpkin pie this year. Lol
I hope you both (& all of your crew) enjoy a very blessed Thanksgiving!
