Well, yes, that was a distraction and higher priority, but not for the carpenter. :-)

Ok ... the inside is finished, skis are hung. Outside still not done (hardware, ventilation), but here we are:

 

Hallway

 

 

1000

 

 

Boys' closet

 

 

1000

 

 

Girls' closet

 

 

1000

 

 

Rubber floor

 

 

1000

 

Poles should hang in the open space, although I still have one more pair of skis that I'm deciding whether to sell or not. I imagine everything will fit, somehow.

No, that part isn't finished yet. Still going to take out that top inside panel and replace.

Seg,

 

The skinny Dynastar Speed's look so out of place. Here's to them being totally unneeded this winter!

 

Now Mr Seg knows of your skis, gonna be harder to hide the next buy!

 

Enjoy.

Yes, he was pleased that everything fit so well, and said "That will be a good governor ... no room for anything else!" (oh, as if....)

Yeah, I am thinking something along the lines of the hidden wine vault like in the house in Breck?

Under the bed has worked just fine in the past .... keep new skis there a few weeks (or months), and then when I pull them out and he says, "Are those new?" I can say "no, not really."

heh. Well, I don't really like having too many at one time. I like new things, but I also like to get rid of the old things. (Except I'll probably always keep those 177 Auras.)  We'll see...

 

But thanks for the warning; it is meaningful coming from you! ;-)

I usually sell back some vacation time at work every year to cover the cost so I don't feel too guilty.

Well, we have door pulls, at least....

 

 

Mesh panels come when the bar countertop  comes, so that's the delay. Don't ask me what the delay with the counter is, though.

 

 

 

The gym is in use, though!

 

 

 

And for your continued viewing enjoyment, panorama shot of main room, although it makes things look weird:

 

 

 

TV stuff still being set up

 

 

 

We should be done just in time for snowmaking to begin. At least the dumpster outside is gone!

looking good!  ahh the joy of contractors and getting them to just finish the job....  

 

Cheers

looks great!  I'd be cool to "see" the skis but the doors do look sharp!

I found some rubber boot mats at the hardware store that has a honeycomb pattern that lets the water drain away from the skis to keep the tails dry. There always seems to be snow in the bindings when I bring the skis into the house. The rubber mat also keeps the skis from sliding when they are leaning against the rack. Been using these mats for several years and it has worked well.

During ski season, race skis are stored vertically because they are always being used or tuned. Twin tips and fun skis are stored horizontally because i can store more skis that way (2 pairs per shelf bracket ).

Way too much complexity!   The (infamous!) Scotskier ski closet  (one of 2, the other one includes the speed skis)

 

Right beside my tuning bench and15 feet from the truck for loading

 

And yes, it is overfull, time for the annual clearance....
