Garage Widow.

Warning, there's about to be a lot of whine in this post, grab a glass and and sit on you a**.
I mean no disrespect to my dear hubby(note to my Mother-in-law)but this is about you, all about you.

Last week we received the permit and the go ahead to build our new 21/2 car garage. Now this is pretty exciting because I really want my hubby tools ect. out of the basement and stored in his new man house.
The thing that is eating my butt is for a couple of months (maybe longer) my kitchen, the room I live in(really, that and the laundry room)has been under major construction. Now the reno is being put on the back burner because the man room has to be started immediately.
My hubby is an Electrician by trade(and an electrical controller) and is the ultimate handyman, there is no job that man can't tackle. The problem is he can not say "NO" to anyone else that needs his expertise.
So my jobs around the house stay unfinished and looking like crap.
So I have told him this weekend he is going to be very busy starting to work on my room while I keep the girls out of the tools , paint and tile grout.
The man room is going to be as big as my house and the cost keep rising like my temper, he was going to put radiant heating in the floors for an extra 3grand, can you say nooooo!
Then there is going to be cathedral ceilings in the front of the garage, for hanging things like canoes(we don't own one mind you)or hubby by the seat of his pants. The next cost is my fave the floors, they will be nicer than my kitchen. It's a pour floor, an epoxy that you can tint and put pretty confetti and sparkles in it. I bet he will keep the floor spotless all the while dropping a trail of cookie crumbs through the kitchen to his new abode, oh I am snarly tonight!!
Oh I just know this baby is going to break the bank!!

Sister, I am with you. We have a garage, but my husband is in the process of cleaning it out to make his man cave. The only things he seems to be able to throw out are mine! I wish you luck.

secret agent said...

Ha! our husbands are related... they must be

my electrical is 1/2 done... I am using lanterns in the laundry room... I have wires everywhere

yet he spent all weekend helping people rebuild their computers....

we can't even get to the point of building the garage... his crap is all in my house right now...

our bank is broken....

so... when you figure it out... share with me PLEASE

I hear ya! Reno can drive anyone crazy.

Keep smilin!

Stacy said...

I think it must be a man gene that we just don't get.

My husband tinkers, he isn't a handy man at all (even though he would like to think he is). If the project is his idea he will work to finish it. If it is mine - he'll get to it when he can. When he finally does complete the job he doesn't clean up, leaves tools all over all over for me to pick up, and then complains when I start cleaning up telling me he was going to get to it.

I feel your pain. I really do! Good Luck!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

I have heard of many husbands with this syndrome. You will need to use your womanly powers to help 'guide' him to the light. To do your will. the one true will.
Weild it like a sword. Promise all the favours you used to seduce him during courtship.
Works for me.

T & R McGrath said...

Hi Kerri, you posted on my blog "A journey of the heart" and wanted to say thank you for your nice posts and for thinking of us during this very sad time.

I would love to chat with you, my email address is phooket@aol.com


Steffie B. said...

Ditto to Ms. Dargonfly, although my man owns his own Construction Company, so when we do things in the house....we do it baby!

Good luck......remind him who the boss is! lol

My husband always say:
Happy Wife, Happy Life!

P.S. did you tag me for the fav things too?

kerri said...

My hubby has taken Friday off and next Wednesday given him a total of 6 days off, he is going to work on my kitchen, I think this blog things scares him, oh ya.
Or just maybe Ms. Dragonfly's advices works, I'll never reveal*grin*. Anyway you cut it, you know who wears the pants and likes it!!

crazylady said...

I'd reconsider the radiant floor heating. If he's comfy in there, you can blog away in the rest of the palace. We put radiant floor heating in the basement. Wish I did the whole house.
I gave up on FM, and had to finish most renos myself.

You all are a one big bunch of renovators! Not bashing, just totally amazed and impressed. My dh is not good with the hands. Well, not with power tools he's not..We have to hire it all out. We could never buy a fixer upper or we would end up in divorce court. We both know our limitations and short comings.

Diana said...

Rony, consider it a blessing of sorts. Living through renovations, and this applies especially to you my dear, as a control,neat freak is H*LL! We are still in a state of reno. a year later, but we have 2 very good reasons.
Good luck Kerri.
P.S. I also use Ms. Dragonfly's advice when I'm not too tired, which is NEVER. Explains why we are still renovating.

Day Dreamer said...

I know exactly what you are going through. My ex hubby was a car boy that never grew up. His messes had grease in them...trailing everywhere. If I wanted a conversation, I had to go out to the grease pit and look under a car. And my stuff inside...well...forget that! I had to buy electricians and plumbers. My husband now has the expertise and not the time! URGH! I'm with ya in spirit! Wish I really had that wine to go with my reply tho! (wink)

Amiable brief and this fill someone in on helped me alot in my college assignement. Say thank you you on your information.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

Hello there, I think your web site could possibly be having
web browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your web
site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent website!
