Day 22: Garage {Main Level}

Click to view all posts in this series
Once again, an area of this house that I was dreading tackling turned out to be 'not that bad.'  Granted it did take a good 3 or 4 hours of work, but I had many hands and helpers (albeit - ones I needed to continuously give instructions to).  Except of course the man in the house - he organized his tools and things on the back wall, which took about as long as it took the rest of us to clean the other 75%.  And no his organizing ways are not quite how I would tackle the project, but who am I to complain, they really are mostly his things used occasionally by me.
Initially this space felt small and cluttered; I knew we needed to fit about 3 more cords of wood into here for this coming winter {I love wood heat}.  So now I think that much of what needs to fit will fit, and when spring rolls around it will be in need of another day long cleaning job - mostly for that seasonal switching of sleds for strollers, skates for bikes, etc.

We can also fit 2 cars in where they actually belong {does anyone else have a garage but no space for cars on a regular basis?}.  All summer long I park outside, which suits me fine, but with our winters up here I LOVE my garage space.  Even when we get dumped on with 2 feet of snow I do not have to scrap off my vehicle (the little things in life are so great)!  {And yes there are times when we get that much in one night!}  Although scraping off your vehicle is minor when you cannot even maneuver out of your LONG driveway - in the winter it feels even longer than when I walk to meet the bus.

So did you accomplish anything this Saturday - does my clean and lovely garage inspire you to go and tackle yours?  Heed my advice and at least make a place for your van/car/truck/SUV to park in there for the winter, you will be so glad that you did!

Happy day!
