Must be why they call it "Long Island" ;)
Check out my completed projects!

Infrastrucure projects are where it's at.
Always good to have a friend with heavy machinery.

And Sinistar?!

I thought you liked yourself more than that.

Let the masochism begin!
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

The last wall in the first third of the shop is done. The center support for the ceiling is done. I will be hanging joists sometime this weekend.

Sweet!
Couldn't tell how big the building was from the trench activity shot.
This will be awesome.

Ha.

That is only 1/3 of the building.

There are still cars and a boat stored in the rest of the building.

I will be building that out in spring time after all of the vehicles are out.

AC is installed.
Joists are hung.
Ceiling goes up today.
We tried last week but we miscalculated and then ran out of time.

I think there is more property shown in this one pic than there is on my entire block. I'm jealous. Looks like it's coming along nicely.

Thanks. Lots of work, but the end result will be well worth it.

Anytime someone wants to visit, I have a guest room.

If for some reason I'm not busier than the proverbial one legged ass-kicker guy before I become stardust again I will be knocking on the door.

Is this project why we won't see you at ZapCon I assume?

I am taking too many trips this year.

Something had to give, unfortunately.

He has sexy new bros to hang out with. We’re not shiny and new anymore.

I crash for free at people's houses.

Zapcon rooms were over 300 bucks.

But I really wanted to go.

I will make a trip out your way next year or maybe sooner.

Going to lay down a floor?  That is precious, precious storage space.  Get a winch and you can drag pinball machines up there.

I don't have a storage space problem.
I don't have to shove things up in the attic.
