First pics of the cars at the new house. Finally transferred the 5,000+ pictures from my iPhone.

So yeah! We've been in the new house since October and its great! My son has a lot of space to run around.

Lots of snow to shovel. No snow blower for now. The driveway is [/URL]

Haha, nice. I've often wondered if you could build a thing like that, but then mount some boat trailer tires on the bottoms of the legs in order to "move it around", therefore keeping it from being considered a permanent structure?

I like the lace wheels on the Roadmaster!

Fords are for winter use! Brian and I think the same way! Why ruin a GM right?

Good question. This one is very well built and cemented in place. I plan to leave it there for our DDs once we build a garage/extension on the house

Exactly! I've driven the roadie maybe once when it snowed a few weeks ago.

Um...no.

Unless you like windsurfing &/or parasailing. Shocked

That looks pretty damn nice!

You have some work to do but thats the fun part of your own home

Couple of engineering additions to that car port & you'll have one nice plat to work
Follow that angle & bump out the back, enclose & put a bigass single door on the front....DONE!

Enjoy...BADASS horseshoe tourney in the spring?

We were talking about having a badass BBQ here when it gets warm out. No solid place to use a jack or stands, so maybe a mini mod day.

Our home inspector was telling us to enclose the car port. I'd rather leave it, bang out a circular drive with an attached garage and so on and so on. We've priced a lot of it out and have a good idea of what we need to save.

As far as the work that needs to be done, like I said, owners before did kind of a half ass job redoing some things. They definitely went cheap to sell the house 5 years ago. But no worries. We will be here for a while and have already begun planning.

We couldn't beat the price and only waited a month to close. If the house was 100% tip top shape, it would have been about $45,000-$50,000 out of our price range.

BTW. Ever read into geo-thermal heating/cooling? We are also looking into solar panels. Unfortunately, you've gotta spend $ to save $.
