In the past month, since leaving my full time job, I’ve been able to get a taste of…well, manual labor. I’ve always liked working with my hands and have always prided myself on being handy. Now that I can sort of dictate my own work hours I have been catching up on my honey do list.

Don’t get me wrong, when you are a home owner there is always something that has to be done around the house. But being that we’re currently having a major renovation completed on the house (building a new garage), I’ve gotten a taste of some real heavy lifting, literally. From hauling some major loads, placing some major structural elements, framing, roofing, not to mention coordinating a lot of other efforts.

I haven’t tackled this project on my own (I have a carpenter on site), I’ve still gotten to get my fair share of work in and I have to say it feels good. At the end of the day, it’s nice to be able to walk away from something and actually see what you’ve accomplished thus far.
