Dave's old heavy tool boxes (AND OVERFLOW) which don't fit in our new tiny one car garage. Where did they end up? In the PANTRY! When a tool is needed he says "I have just the thing" and 45 minutes later he might return with the right tool. Or not.
This is an easy fix. I emptied all of his tool boxes onto the kitchen table, and filled plastic bins with related items. No doubt there would be duplicates. I would say he has over 50 screw drivers. Tons of pliers, wrenches, hammers, drill bits etc. There are two more boxes with SAE and metric wrenches, now neatly stored. It took only an hour to clear out the old boxes, and dispose of broken and useless bits, and out goes those awful, filthy, heavy, old, mostly broken boxes.
Here's the sewing room in its present configuration. The early morning sun comes into that window and shouts: "Let's sew!"
My overflow is now living in the downstairs shower. This house has three full baths, so this shower is never going to be used.
Speaking of baths, my laundry room is currently housed in that same tiny garage, which is cold and far away from our upstairs closets. You know that has to go. Alberto is going to fix this. The hall bath upstairs has as 50 year old tub which will also not be used, and it will disappear and the laundry twins will fill that space. Perfecto!
By the way, the electrician came and fixed the socket that the refrigerator would use, so the extension cord is gone and once again, we have a fix. Hurray!
