    1962 Electra

    Not mine, on Craigslist: https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/cto/d/nice-1962-buick-electra-225/6749952898.html Buick Electra 225, 95k miles will go up as I drive as weather permits. Factory air condition and all power options, switches all work but needs some attention on seat cables. Very solid, still undercoat on undercarriage, no holes or weak spots anywhere. A few very small spots of surface rust. 401 4 barrel runs really nice, dynaflow trans is perfect. Newer tires, battery, wheel cylinders, drums and dual exhaust. Has been converted to internal regulator. I believe gas gauge has a faulty ground and could use a good clean up but overall it's a great ol car. Call or text 5746019851

    1972 Electra 2-dr. in E. Texas, not mine

    Ha! For some reason Facebook Marketplace seems to label a lot of older model cars with incorrect modern model names. Buicks get the Cascada. Not sure if it is user error or FB error.

    That is quite the building. A friend of mine just wrapped up a project that almost took a year, a 6 car plus center shop section that can hold 3 with additional shop space. Certainly took longer and added up to more than originally thought.

    Things are a little tight while waiting for the new space to come online. I have to move lawn equipment out of the way just to get back to my toolboxes or use the air compressor that is taking up the area in front of the Skylark.

    They were able to finish the block yesterday. Little miscue on leaving out the walkthrough door on the side. Will have to make some alterations on that. More rain in the forecast this week, even some snow and ice on Thursday.

    Luckily no snow...yet. We have had plenty of rain this year though. Nearly 2 feet above the average for a whole year so far to date. Hoping to get some rough grading and gravel in place while the sun is out next week. Trusses are being delivered on the 19th.

    Footers were poured on November 1st. Finally, after a wet stretch, block work for the foundation began late this week. Final courses should be up tomorrow. Back wall will have two additional courses over the sides due to the slope that is back there.

    The Zoning Ordinance specifically limits the size of accessory buildings. No HOA, just lot covenants to match the materials (siding, roof, windows) of the existing home.

    Wow...there are some areas with a lot of rock around here. I am glad to not have to deal with anything like that!

    A parallel project, more for my wife, we are adding a screened porch at the rear of the house. She gets hers and I get mine!

    I had originally planned to go back further, but had to scale back when I learned about the square footage limitation. The only setback requirements were to stay 5’ off the side and rear property line. I will have storage space upstairs, but they don’t allow a second story either. So just has to be attic storage. I am also building a large shed behind it that will allow some storage as needed, but mainly to keep the yard and kid items from taking up garage space. I actually have fairly high ceilings in the attached garage, so I am thinking a 4 post storage lift could work in one of the bays there if needed down the road. I am also planning for a lift in the clubhouse for repairs, though that probably won’t happen any time soon. The top of the driveway will be extended to the new driveway. I set it off about 13 feet from the house to give plenty of access room for the back yard. That has it about 17 feet off the end of the driveway currently. There is a slight slope in the rear of the yard that will require the block to come up as a retaining wall some. Inspection of the dug out footers today and concrete poured for them tomorrow so that block work can begin next week.
