Our Garage+ Project – Week Three Update

Not a lot happened this week on site construction-wise. We had visits from Ready Install‘s excavation, plumber, and electrician contractors. These were to determine what was needed to build and to coordinate activities. We did get a water line delivered and insulation for the foundation to protect against frost. Definitely was hoping for more progress, but hopefully next week will be better.

Saturday was the highlight of the week – we went to Spotlight Design Center on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester and worked with Leanne Richard at Spotlight Design Center to finalize the design on the mini-kitchen that will be on the second floor. She was a true professional and extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Lynn and Leanne discuss cabinetry choices. I am letting those choices be all Lynn’s!

Leanne did a nice job with her CAD design for the kitchenette. She was very thorough.

Final design. Looks great.

After this, it was off to Home Depot to look at some options for flooring and appliances.

I know Ready Installs is chomping at the bit, but again, I hope to see faster progress this week at the site.

    1. Yeah, I’m trying to do a weekly one on the garage until it’s done, and then there’s the question of the small amount of terrain I built in July 😆 that I’m blogging about too. I still have a golf one to do too, maybe they are Magic Buses?

  1. Remember to grab any off cuts of the foam Mark for making scenery with, as you say a slow week progress wise, but a lot of essential planning seems to have taken place.

  2. Your “new gaming room” is going to have all the mod-cons…hehe

    …it’s looking great, and the slow progress will all come crashing together some weeks, and you will wonder how they got so much done.
