A garage?

I found another portable building today, this one far cheaper than the one that will be my cabin…. and cheaper than I could buy the building materials-even just the nails and joiners-to build a new one. The doors are 8′ wide. The building that was once a garage on my property is in terrible shape. Maybe a garage will join the cabin. We’ll see! 

Hopefully I haven’t gone from collecting stuff to collecting buildings!

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism

  1. I discovered after purchasing the “garage” that the doors aren’t 8′ wide, but more like 6′. Ah, the problems of purchasing sight-unseen from 400 miles away. Still, it is a nice building and I’m very glad I bought it. For now it’s a great place to store things while I work on the cabin. Later I may enlarge the garage door or I may make it into a “living room” for when I have guests or into a small house for people to stay at who want to learn about living large, small.
