Each fall it is time to empty the garage enough to store the car out of the snow and park the mower inside too. This year we did not beat the first snow as it came in October. But we knew our time was limited and the weather was perfect this week.
We have so many tools now that we needed extra space in the garage. With the walls up and painted it was time to move most of the furniture and the boxes of stored home goods into the house.
At least a quarter of the garage was packed with furniture and boxes. We brought in most of the household items but left the books packed away. Also we are not ready to move into the master bedroom so we put some furniture in there but stored several other pieces in the extra bedroom.
Dave’s office will be in the room we are in now so we also left his desk in the garage.
A few pieces of furniture went into the master bedroom and the second large bookcase was moved into the living room.
The boxes have taken over the living room!
There are boxes with good china and with steel pans, boxes of decorations like pottery and glassware. It will be interesting to unpack and see these items that have been out of circulation for so many years.
We had to bring in the acrylic stucco that I purchased so that it won’t freeze. So we hauled in the 5 gallon buckets and made a workbench with an old door that I got for free.
The large tools and tool shelves were brought back into the garage so things got a bit crowded again.
But now there is room for the car in the garage and room for the riding mower.
