You should be rebellious and mount the panel sideways when you replace them.... Or go old school and put in a fusebox!

That is a pretty awesome setup you have going, can't wait to see the pics as it progresses!

I had lived up in Albany for 3 years.

The snow and bad weather got to me and I had to get back down south.

I used to drive up to Saratoga, Lake George, or through Vermont for day trips now and then.

As soon as the water calms down a little bit I am going to be down there dishing as much as I possibly can.

That spot with the current looks like a prime spot for a weighted end trout line set up. Nothing like unattended fishing on a multi-hook rig.

Possibly. It's close to where the metawee river Champlain canal and Lake Champlain meet. I hear you can catch just about anything freshwater in this area.

Oh I'd bet it's a good spot. My problem with regular fishing is the having to sit there and wait. A 'trout line' rig is much more my style.

I usually fish with lures so will just go down there and cast a few times whenever time permits.

Not a 'drowning the worm' type fisherman? Live bait is king!

This is cool. I am a firm believer in separation of home and office even if the office is on the same property. Having an office in the home kind of sucks because it's always there.

Thanks. Figure it's a good setting to meet with a customer if they want to go over plans or talk about a project. Better than having them in the house. Can go through the shop and show them products.

NICE, So rare to find the perfect mix in house and detached building for work or hobbies.
