The only way to get them in the basement is up the deck, through the dining and living rooms, down the stairs. Whats your guess on my wifes opinion of this. The worst part is that I can't do it alone and she needs to help. I'm typing this trying to build up the courage to let her know this is the day the toys go to the basement. Wish me luck.

I am already done with the yearly tear down and the season barely ended. I am itching to get the new Yamaha four stroke sled. I would probably get it but my WIFE is sending my son to Europe for two weeks in the summer for that People to People Ambassador Program. Thats half the cost of the sled.

First I let my wife get angry about house repairs I had to do during the last few weeks that I didn't do . Second, I tell her that I "might" get the blue machine in the basement for the winter.
Third, I fix the things around the house and I clean up my working space in the basement. So now, at this point she's happy about the house repairs and the clean up of the basement.
Fourth, I try not to involve her in moving of the bike, I work on shifts, so when she's at work, I ask a friend to come over for a beer, and I get him to hearn it ! When the loved one comes back, it may take a few days for her to realise why I keep going downstairs as soon as I have a chance. Et voila. The bike is in a warm space.
Getting the bike out of the basement is much easier. After a while, she keeps asking when I'll get it out, and she 'll even help me do it

When we moved, I told my wife all I wanted was a bigger garage and she could decide on everything else. I got lucky and found a house where the garage is 20' wide x 40' long. I also had the walls drywalled and insulated so my beer wouldn't freeze when I was out there working.
