Now I'm looking at about 4 solid weekends dedicated to finishing the work I started, not to mention numerous trips to Lowe's for more wood, screws, brackets, staples, etc.
What about the fun of doing it? Time spent with dad, GF, step family, friends, the actual pride of doing something yourself and adapting all this thing to your space, in the end, that's fun, no?
I can understand commercial facilities, but as a hobbyist at home...
