This Old Awesome: Have Workbench, Will Travel

In this week’s episode of “This Old Awesome”, the Broads go on an emotional roller coaster ride while moving their super heavy workbench (or “S.H.W.”) into the workshop. Expecting to find the loft nearing completion, they are confronted with trials, tribulations, and one perfectly trimmed window. With special guest stars: Jack and Rachel.

You may remember last week when we oh so giddily announced that we were starting to move into the new workshop space.

What we didn’t realize was that all that work being done kinda sorta amounted to one window being trimmed:

Don’t get us wrong-it’s a beautiful job. You’ve never seen trim so neat and nice before, we tell ya!-but our dreams of getting the workshop set up were kind of…not happening.

Except for the fact that we already had the super heavy workbench all loaded up in a borrowed truck and Kate’s brother and future sister in law were both totally excited to help unload it.

Her brother especially.

Unfortunately, there were a few other snags in our day. For example, Kate’s brother and future sister in law were sadly unlearned in the ways of Meatbagz projects. Case in point- Kate’s brother wanted to just bring the workbench into the schoolhouse.  Just like that. Can you imagine?

Luckily Kate was carrying the other half of the workbench and steadfastly refused to move until Mack was able to properly photodocument the entire process, as is the way of the Meatbagz Broads.

Crisis averted.

Kate may have also “forgotten” to mention to her brother that the workbench needed to be carried up some stairs.

Luckily, he totally didn’t mind.

Before we knew it (and before ours backs were thrown out too badly), the super heavy workbench was nestled in its new, somewhat sadly unfinished home. No, the space wasn’t quite as done as we’d hoped, but darn it, look at that workbench-that lovely, lovely, chartreuse workbench. Doesn’t it look pretty awesometown tucked into that corner? And soon the loft will be finished and we’ll be able to move in for real. Which we think is pretty exciting.

We’re obviously not the only ones.

So thanks, Jack and Rachel, for coming and helping out, and thanks, Kate’s Dad, for the loan of the truck. Rest assured that when the workshop really is finished you’ll be at the top of the list to come visit-and possibly help move the other super heavy work desk that we want to put up there. And maybe a few  boxes of bagz. And a couple of other things. But that’s it. Really.

Thanks for reading, and tune in next time to “This Old Awesome” for even more exciting high fives!
