    Next step was to replace the cat condo. AKA, screen enclosed box in the garage where Becky can eat her food and place her BMs. Marvelous way to keep the litter box smell out of the house.

    Step 0: bottom layer of cabinets.

    Step 1: remove old cat condo and attach bottom cabinets to wall. You can see where the cat door is that will go into the house.

    step 2: attach top.

    step 3: build cat condo on top of base cabinets. cat door is in place as well.

    step 4: cad condo doors attached

    step 5: drawers in bottom layer

    step 6: complete. Made the litter area large enough for a litter robot at some point. Second floor for food. Made a little tunnel up top (with an access hole right above where the food is) where Becky could hang out and sleep.

    Somebody cares a lot more about animals than I do.

    The back wall of the garage.

    The beast on the far left is 11 feet tall, and very heavy.

    here's the shoe storage closet. tall mud boots go in the bottom.
    The vent is for my wife's shoes. My feet are minty fresh.

    Ha ha, before you added the minty fresh comment, I was going to reply that you should put some activated charcoal in there to soak up the smells.

    Love it! Nice job. I like the extra tall storage for pipe clamps.

    Do I treat the space as two spaces because of the line? Do I ignore the line and treat the space as a whole?
    Paint over the line.

    My house is old and has popcorn ceilings. My wife is risk averse so she had me take a sample of the ceiling to get tested before starting my project of scraping the ceilings down.

    Test came back today as containing asbestos. Well shit.

    Guess I am going to be putting a skim coat on this instead of scraping.

    We are only doing this because am ripping out the carpet and putting in new wood floors, so we figured this would be be a good time to get rid of the popcorn form 1972. Yikes this is going to a huge ordeal.

    Amazing how this has compounded.

    It went from:
    this carpet is ugly and pink, we need to change it out

    to:
    start ripping out the carpet
    rent moving van to drive 4 hours away to pick up 2 tons of flooring
    repair cracks in foundation
    while we are at it, lets get rid of the terrible popcorn ceiling (it has asbestos)
    skim coat the whole house
    since the floor is bare concrete, lets paint all the walls too.
    Then we will put in the flooring
    FML

    Unfortunately I am only on step 3, but I will start the skim coat tomorrow.

    That was actually my first thought when you posted about it. And that sounds like a lot of work!
