|I know, despicable, right? and that was after we had pulled some of |
And how it looks now:
|We plan to hang the large ladder horizontally from the rafters with large brackets but we were just outta oomph yesterday (and I couldn't find the brackets but did this morning)|
|used all the random buckets and bins we had to organize all our garden tools & shop-vac attachments|
|hopefully we can keep all of Ben's outdoor toys down to what fits in the red bucket|
|what we have stashed in the cabinet we finally hung- car & bike supplies; also found a use for all those old BPA ladden tupperware that I just couldn't part with but no longer planned to use in our kitchen|
Whew! while it took us the better part of the day (Ben was a champ chillin' with us, playing while we cleaned and taking a couple long naps as well), we are so glad it is done cuz nothing says summer is comin' like a clean garage (I think this has been one of our spring projects each year for the last few years). We still have stuff to get rid of-like the 3 recycle bins full of cedar shingles; Steve hopes to finish that project this summer). We have been jonesin' for a bike trailer to carry Ben in as well and now we finally have room for it.
Also, a pix of what the fence looked like as of last Monday night, right before my parents left.
And how it looks now:
....look the same, yep, that's right, crappy weather last week and cleaning out the garage has put a little snag in the project but Steve dug out a bit more concrete last night to allow a place for another 4x4 next to the chimney and after book babies today, Ben and I hit up the cedar store for more supplies so we hope we hope to be back in business and see
Plus, having a clean garage makes accessing tools and the overall fence building endeavor much more pleasant. Being the nice wife that I am, I even plan to hook up our radio/ipod player (stolen from Ben's room-I purchased a cheapy for him when setting up the nursery but haven't used it much yet; it should go to much better use in the basement/garage/outdoors-it is weather-proof after all) in the garage to surprise Steve with some musica when he gets back to workin' on the fence tonight!
