Garage nightmare
« on: September 14, 2014, 06:00:42 PM »
My 1 1/2 car garage has been my repair / fab shop for years. I also had use of a large dairy barn for the last 8-10 years. The old folks who own the barn are going into a nursing home and I have to get my stuff out. You wouldn't believe how much stuff / crap you can accumulate in 8 years. Some of this stuff is in my back yard , at a friends back yard and my garage is filling up fast. I have no room and I'm tripping over this stuff. This week I'm cleaning out. These are this weeks pics of before. I'll post next weeks pics of the clean out.I have a brake drum lathe , a kick press , and a large metal cutting band saw in there too.

Half of the junk on the table in front of the green board is gone.

I have tomorrow sort of free, and thought I would offer a helping hand, til I realized you were 1,100 miles away!   Have a similar problem here, with new shop, old shop, barn, and storage building, plus a full basement.  Shelving sure helps.  I can see a difference.

I saw a lot of progress, its a lot of work.  Where does the ladder go to?  More tools?

When does it start to get cold up there?
