house in Willcox, AZ. Congratulations, odie!
I'm putting my pool table under the carport and we're gonna place white lattice around the front of the carport. The laundry room is outside the main part of the house. You have to walk outside the kitchen door to get to the laundry room.
We are going to tear out the old carpeting and paint the walls. We're also going to put in new flooring, window coverings and an entire white vinyl fencing package. Gonna be a lot of work but it'll be worth it in the end.

once everything is all said and done (house and paints) I will put together a video tour and put it up on YouTube like I did with our townhouse that is for sale (yes, I put a video under title on youtube to get more people looking at the house for sale). I can't tell you how many calls our realitor has received asking about the townhouse, it's just crazy.

I put up videos of our used cars on Youtube and get calls on them from that as well.
I haven't done it in a while because I am not in charge of used cars sales anymore but I am trying to get back into it.

Well we decided to go with the belt drive over the screw drive. Also we are going to get the battery back-up (in case of power outages). I just need to decide on 1/3hp or 1/2 hp. I can hear the Tool Man saying "We will just add a Saab 900 turbo motor on the door assembly and arr ar ar".

I spoke with Cornwell Door Service (located in Lebanon,PA) after they were recommended by a carspace member. They were very helpful and we are more than likely going to have them install the door openers for us. Each unit is going to have belt drive and battery back-up. as for the HP... there is no horsepower rating because the units are DC powered.

I always assumed you had a heated Jay Leno, like Museum/Garage for your cars ?

Well, with the really nice temps we had on thursday, I was able to get the garage floor sealed. Once I'm able to get onto it (probably Sat) I will try and snap a few pics. We are getting our upright freezer delivered on Sat. Now I just need to decide about a garage work system.

I decided to hold off on taking pictures. We have boxes up the wazzu on one side of the garage because of moving, and I'm putting the work bench system together on the other side, so I'm going to hold off until all is done.
As for the workbench. I decided to go with the Coleman Tuff Duty System (Click here for link). So far I have purchased (2) wall cabinets, (1) two-door base cabinet, (1) three-drawer base cabinet, and (1) storage cabinet. Once those are assembled and up I will purchase the pegboard hutch and 60" worktop to finish everything off.
The epoxy floor coating got it's first true test on April 3rd. I backed into the garage to drop off the Coleman stuff. After unloading I went inside and had lunch, after that, I went out and got the mail. As I was coming back into the garage I noticed a small oil puddle under the front of the '06 Pilot. Turns out the oil filter was not fully tightned and had a small drip. I had my oil changed just 2 days before, so I did not lose to much oil (about 1/2 qt). The dealer replace oil and tightend the filter after checking to make sure it wasn't a cracked plug or pan. Anyway, the oil just wiped right up off the floor without leaving a mark.
