When I built my detached garage I used the zip system for the walls and roof. Good stuff. I'm seeing more and more of it.

Dang, Charlie... That 'Cruiser looks nice.

As for the house, well I've done a fair bit recently, but don't have much for photo evidence.

The workshop (lower level of the garage) is unheated, and I futzed about trying to warm it up a bit over the winter, but mostly failed. It's warm enough out now that the shop stays a decent temp all day & night, but I'm going to do something this summer to get ready for next winter. I might take a stab at making a solar collector to heat & circulate air, or maybe just bite the bullet and put a natural gas heater in it.

And in the workshop, I got tired of dealing with the cobbled-up mess that the previous owner called a workbench, so that is on its way out, and a spiffy new one is in the works. Film at 11.

Most recently though, my wife got a burr under her saddle about the landscaping, and hired an outfit to come in and spend a pile of money for us. There's a slope on the south side of the garage that was a bit of an eyesore, what with 25-year-old unkempt landscaping and some mostly unusable steps from the driveway down to the sunken patio. They started demolition today, with a plan to make some terraced gardens with a stairway twisting through it. Should be awesome when it's done, and the best part is I don't have to do any of it. I like that part.
