I honestly I feel like we have been in construction mode since we moved into this house….three years ago. From the house needing a complete gut job to spontaneously deciding to build The Suite Pecan….and now, making a garage…let’s just say that our house is a mess, inside and out! hahah
If you follow me on Instagram, and I hope you do, you probably have seen a few updates on my Instagram story. I love being able to give a quick update while I am working.
I wanted to quickly touch on what steps we need to take to enclose the carport, in case any of you have a carport and might want to enclose it at some point. Keep in mind that city regulations are different depending on where you live. Please check with local codes before you begin.
Here is a list of everything we need to get done. I have crossed off everything that has been completed.

And I probably forgot something, I really should write it all down. I am a planner, sort of. When it comes to creative stuff I sort of just go for it. I still don’t have a definite plan for the layout of where the tools will go and such. Here are a couple progress shots.
