Yeah, I know you are waiting for the bookshelf photos. Keep holdin’ yer breath, faithful readers, ’cause that ain’t happenin’ for a while yet.
What DID happen, finally, is I have garage storage. It’s a bigger deal than you can imagine, unless you have a bunch of garage stuff and move into a house the garage of which has not a single shelf or cabinet in which to put that stuff. So here are the before and after pictures. You are standing in the large garage door, facing inward toward the house. Yes, there’s a ton of paper piled up in there, it’s from the packing boxes and it’s slowly going to the recycler and being put to other good uses. The crumply pile in the middle is just paper not yet flattened out.
Straight ahead is the small door to the laundry room and what would be a mud room, except they put hardwood floors in the sucker, which explains the shoe cubby next to the door in the after picture. On the left of that door into the house is a slanted corner wall, which explains the angled look of that side. No, there isn’t much there yet, but hey, these just went in. Gimme a chance!
Here are the photos, Before & After on the left side, then Before & After on the Right side. Click on ‘em to see the goods. The explanation of the right side follows.
On the right, other than the little freezer, there wasn’t much but the central vac in the corner. I had sworn, after having problems in the last place, that I’d never put cabinets or anything in front of the car parking space, but this garage is way deeper that that one, so it works. The after shows the work bench with drawers and under storage, cabinets over, and also the four very large closed cabinets for stuff. All those things in the middle of the garage will be swallowed up between these and the open shelves on the other side. I’ll be out there doing that as soon as it warms up a tad, we’re getting snow tonight.
