In the meantime, we've been working on the yard to clean up the foliage and clear a path around the house in anticipation of construction starting and getting organized inside and out. One small project with a satisfyingly large impact was cleaning out and organizing the garage. The prior owner had some nice shelving and work benches in the garage but when we moved in, we just piled stuff in and around the garage without much planning or sorting. So, we finally took a day to go through our tools and other items and get them organized and put on shelves. We also demo'd a bunch of the shelving and workbenches to make more space and used a favorite trick of taking the doors off existing storage cabinets to create more visible storage space. This wasn't a big project but it's a good one to check off the list.
|This is kind of a mess|
|We may even be able to find our tools now!|
