Home projects!

Going from a 6' x 5' deck to a 28' x 7' deck has made projects so nice. No rain protection here, but that’s a trade-off I’m happy with.

Unfortunately getting big things up here is a bit tricky. This 3/4" sheet of plywood had no chance through the front door, so my roommate and I tag teamed it up and over the railing.

I’m also growing increasingly fond of big vans. It’s a shame a sprinter—hell, even an Express van—is worth it’s weight in gold.

Anyways... The closet at this apartment was awful, and had very little usable space. That needed to be changed, but I kept putting it off.

And the after. I’m thinking on one of the short shelves I’ll eventually use drawer slides to make a large pull-out tray I can put all of my most commonly used tools on. The shelves are two feet deep and thirty inches across.

There’s this girl who has been getting me into plants. We went on a day trip a few days ago and picked up some pretty cool ones at a rural roadside mom ‘n pop store, but she also gave me the idea to try training pothos to grow around my window. So... I’m trying it! I built a window surround, tied it into the shelf, and will be stapling pothos up and around said surround as it grows.

There are a few other small things I’ll be doing in here, and I plan on changing the bedroom closet significantly. But after that... I think it’s done. Which is kind of sad 😔
