SO guess what the wife and I just BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! I move in the end of July and will have my own space for working, small storage room/shop area, huge carport to work in, just will need to make some collapsable saw horses to work on.

You’d better start now on a changing table, crib and rocking chair.

First comes the home – next comes ???

LOL…my wife and I moved into our new house 9 years ago and in 2 weeks baby made three. Now, no miracle of gestation, she was quite pregnant when we moved in, but I concur with Don on the crib/rocker…get at it!

Don’t forget that for every project a new tool (or two or three) is required! A new house presents many opportunities to add to the workshop. Congrats!
