Alternate Title: How Paul Spent His Second “Sabbatical” After the HP Lay Offs
When we moved to Gilroy in 2014, the second garage (shown here) was open stud construction, with one wall separating the two car garage side from a large sized storage room. Each side of the building had a window. Pretty basic construction, built in the 70’s without a permit, more on that as the story develops, and a tin roof.
With the help from Dan the neighbor, a retired machinist, they managed to turn a basic structure into a super cool space. In the mean time, I took my brother Mike’s coin collection and turned them into cool epoxy top counters.
