Garage build – Phase 1 complete

Lotus in the garage

Since my last update on the garage build I have managed to make some progress in the gaps between work and holidays. The main task was to empty the temporary garage, aka the dining room, which needs to be plastered and redecorated before Christmas. This involved refurbishing Jen’s Granddad’s workbench (which we are sure he acquired from the Alvis factory, where he worked), erecting shelving and having a thorough sort out of everything we had kept from the old garage. Although I still need to sort out tools, as I have inherited my Dad’s collection to join Jen’s granddad’s and my own – which seems like a good excuse to get a shiny new toolbox! Now that the garage is full of car and tools etc I’ve upped the security with better locks and an alarm.

The most exciting garage news is that it is being used for what it was built for – working on cars! Unfortunately it isn’t my car – whilst I’m away in Japan with work for a few weeks I’ve lent the garage to Jen’s cousin, Rich, who needed to do some work on his Elise, which included removing the front clamshell, a task which is really best done out of the elements. When Rich has finished working on his Lotus I have a few jobs to do on the MR2 and there’s also a new toy to live in the garage, which will be coming to a blog post soon…
