Eight hours and some shopping and... Whaa-lah!!Every summer I get blown away by the local road racers. In the fall of 2010, I went to extreme measures and added two walls to the carport to make a 7x7 spinning closet. The rudimentary addition cost a measly $225 and still affords the wife the ability to pull the family van underneath in the wintertime. Four pieces of plywood, 20 2x4s, a couple boxes of deck screws, a door, and some foam caulking basically got the job done.
To top it all off, I removed a door to the furnace room, so the shed is heated and has light!! The addition of tool boards, TV/DVD, dresser drawers, and storage shelves make the shed a versatile and comfy place to hang out. Even though it is still early this winter, the addition has kept me in better riding shape then any November since I lived in Santa Rosa, California, back in 1996.
The work I put in during the winter months surely paid off as I am riding better then I ever thought I could. This shed is the main reason for the big turnaround from being a competitive retard to a competitive die hard.
