Garage Progress

Posted by John on October 20th, 2011

So far, so good.  The garage is coming along.  Lisa and I spent the better part of an afternoon cleaning up what was mostly my mess in preparation for the drywall contractor.  We divided my stuff into several piles: trash, basement, shed or stays in garage.  I’m not a fan of just moving the mess […]
