Garage Room

When we bought our Westwood Main house the garage had been converted to another bedroom. I wish it hadn't though because the conversion was horrible and I ended up ripping everything out. It would have been easier to start fresh and that taught me a lesson. Next time I will completely demo everything and start from zero.

AC Pad

When the ancient AC at our house finally died I decided not to do the new install myself but there were a few things I did do because AC guys are busy in the summer and I wanted special features. One of those features was mounting the condenser unit outside up high so it doesn't get dinged by the lawnmower and infested with ants.


Things looked like we would be able to pay off the house in maybe just a couple years so I didn't want to build a garage when we would just move. So I started building a nice shed I could take with me when I moved and then use it as a guest cottage.


Elizabeth wanted a garden to grow some vegetables with the kids. She wanted a raised garden like my sister has but I don't like masonry blocks much and decided to make it out of limestone slabs that the local rock yard has at a decent price.

Guest Bath Tile

I didn't like the tile put in the bathrooms by the previous owner (largely because they did a horrible job of it) but it was low on my priority list. That is until we had the foundation fixed. The tile had been laid after the bedroom sank so when the house was moved back the guest bathroom tile pushed up and created a 2inch hump or tent in the middle of the room making the floor jump to priority #1.
