Default In a way you could say it started today

Builder came today to take out get three relatively small trees for the build of my 26w x 28 deep by mostly 12.5 ceiling detached garage. Excavation for footers, weather permitting, starts Monday or Tuesday. Spent a lot of time on all parts of this board since the beginning of the year looking for ideas. But, all it really did was make me jealous. Some very impressive stuff out there. But I got it as big as I could get it in the space I had. Now the wait will be killing me.

Nothing to photograph yet. Even my wife had to admit the missing trees - one of the points of contention on this build - were hardly noticeable.
