Rebuilding the Garage, v. 2

13 years ago, I spent a few weeks rebuilding my garage, as documented on this blog.

At the time, I chose the less expensive clear plastic roofing tiles, because I wasn't really convinced the project was going to work and I imagined I'd have to tear it all down and replace it with a real garage in a few years.

But sure enough, some projects last a lot longer than you expect, and it's still there, more due to benign neglect than any plan. Here are a few photos to give you an idea of how it's weathered the time. "Post-apocalyptic" is a good description.


Of course, 13 years is a long time, and in the interim, my 5 year old is now 18 years old, and bigger, stronger and in some ways smarter than I am. He's off to university in the fall and had a gap in his summer employment, so I've employed him to fix it up. I'm looking forward to the outcome as well as the process.
