So I wanted to do something while my love was on the coast with the kids. It needed to be something that took all day, that she would appreciate and that I had the skill to accomplish.
I decided to clean the garage. As you can see in this first photo, the garage is a wreck. Not only can you not park a car in there, but you can hardly walk through it all. Piles of stuff everywhere. The long bench on the right is unusable. So I dug in.
I have a pretty simple method when it comes to cleaning. Take everything out. Throw away what you can. Put everything back. This is after the first hour. I've made a lot of progress. The lawn is covered with stuff. A neighbor AND the Schwann man both asked me if I was having a yard sale.
This is a pretty good place to be. After about 2 1/2 hours. The garage is basically empty. The bench has been cleared. I've thrown a LOT of stuff away and I can see how it's all going to go back together... Mostly. That TV in front there? That weighs about 9,000 pounds.
This is an hour or so later. I think all in all it took four hours. My whole body hurts, but it in a good way. I'm going to cook me up some steak as a personal reward. And my love will be so happy when she gets home tomorrow.
Best part about this project?
It's now an actual garage... you know, for a car. And it won't be destroyed again for another six months.
