The van is really close now. The dealership website no longer indicates, "This vehicle is in transit." Over the last few days we have really gotten things ready to go as soon as the van arrives. We've cleared the bay where all of the work will be done. Supplies have all been moved to that location. The cutting frame for the plywood sheets is set up nearby. I'm also excited to try out a new cutting tool from Kreg. It's a 100" long track for a circular saw. That will make it much easier to work with all of the 4'x8' sheets of plywood.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
