We made massive progress this week, and we’ve furthered our goals of conquering this house by gutting out the garage. This was no small task, and I can’t believe how much progress we made in a single day! Let’s get started shall we?
Sadly, the gutting began while I was running errands, so I don’t have a proper before photo to show you, but here’s what I came home to!
Wow. That’s a lot of stuff! It took us most of the day to go through everything, but we found many treasures. There were scads of old family photographs, fencing equipment (too freaking cool!) and old SCA weapons from Jay’s collage days. But the real prize was this oddity:
How awesome is he? We were just in love with him from the first moment. He’s actually an hors d’oeuvre holder. I really should hate myself for how much I love him. Welcome back into the house, little awsome friend we didn’t know existed.
In the end, we didn’t finish the entire garage in one day. But here’s all that’s left!
Not too shabby, eh? Have a look at what’s out at the curb!
I put up a notice on Craigslist to let people know there was a treasure pile on the curb. We’ve had a fair number of pickers come and weed through stuff. One man’s trash, and all of that jazz.
Not a bad day’s work, If I do say so myself. Which I do. It’s been a very busy week here! I’ve got even more home redo’s lined up for the blog (we gutted all of the carpeting out of the living room!) but that post will be for another day, when we finished cleaning the wood floors up.
