Gym time (not for me!)


11 sleeps until my 2 weeks off!
 
Steven has been working away like a trooper on his latest adventure.  He’s always been one to try and stay in shape and over the years we’ve paid endless amounts in gym memberships which he has made more than effective use of.  However we’ve decided that now we have the space and to make it more efficient for us as a family to work together, that we should create the gym at home.  So in a corner of the big barn, opposite my lovely horse, he set about making a shell for the room which would house the gym equipment.  It didn’t take long before he had the frame up

I was supervising :)


followed by the slats to make the outside walls
 

and a door to be able to lock everything away on a night (the barn itself is locked so just extra precaution here) along with a roof so now it’s almost ready for the equipment.  Almost, after lights and carpet go down!
 

I think he should be enormously proud of himself for managing to do all of this by himself, as to be fair, I generally sat in the fishing chair and supported the build from the sidelines :D.


Duck update:  We popped her into the small dog crate which we kitted out with straw, duck feed and water after checking her leg thoroughly.  It's not obvious where the injury is so we've put her in the crate which will restrict her movement and hopefully give her some much needed respite.  I can close the barn door and let her wander about in the barn in a day or 2, again in safety.  It won't be tonight though, maybe tomorrow after 48 hours.  I've covered the crate partially with a horse rug so she feels safe.  Bless her.

  1. My husband has always weight trained in some form or fashion. He builds gym equipment for himself and keeps it at work for lunchtime sessions. He does more cardio now than weights and we have a running machine in the conservatory because road running would jar his twice operated on knee! Indeed, your husband should be extremely proud of himself. Is he going to kit it out with mirrors, my hubby always bid for his off the internet.

  2. Ouch that sounds painful. It takes a lot of dedication and I think they need a big well done for sticking at it. Steven is in his element! It will be lovely to have the company when I am working in there.
