    Geez, what a wreck.

    Haven't cleaned it in two years. And it's become the "dump" for all the crap in the house that we didn't want in the house anymore, and full of the ex's crap.

    Sawdust, boxes, wood scrap yadda yadda yadda..

    So very bad, I had to hire my housekeeper/neighbor gal to help out with it. She is superb. Flipped her a Franklin for the trouble, and the best money I've spent in a while.

    All day at this $hit, and dropping in for a slug of soda and a quick run around the block of MLP.

    Hell, I might even post after-pics :rofl:

    Sure ain't gonna post before pics.

    Man, the stuff that we found. And oh, the drill bits and stuff. Wow. :laugh2:

    I have quite the sawdust collection in the garage too, and the wood shop is out back.

    I just built a house and moved a year and a half ago. I had to get a 30 yard dumpster dropped off, mostly for the garage. Why some of the shit is kept in the first place is crazy. Mostly the wife's stuff though......

    There is no explanation other than "we'll deal with it later" with regards to $hit being put in there.

    And "later" is now. Dammit.

    Yeah, Dave, but around here, "later" gets to be years. When I finally break, it's am immense task. I feel for you, bro.

    Don't have a garage but I have a basement that can rival it!
    Especially with all the kid's stuff that they like to aquire:shock:.

    It's always the same story, mind if we put it here until we can find room for it?

    Some of it has been down there for years.

    It's almost 70 feet long and you can barely move down there!

    I could never make it more than 6 months between complete cleanings of the garage. I remove everything. Yup, everything. Sweep and blow it clean. Then I put it all back.

    I built a new workshop at home last yea. Real nice, lots of cabinets counters, workbench etc. Looked like a damn operating room. But, after several major projects in it, then the holidays last year, it's never been the same since. I never quite had all the storage completed, and now, like many work spaces, every horizontal surface is covered in crap.

    It could be worse though. It is 100% my space. So at my wife knows she cannot just "store" something in there (I.E., open the door and throw something in). So that helps. At least it is all 100% my crap.

    I just need to suck it up and spend a few days and sort it all out again. But, on any given day, there's something else I'd rather be doing than cleaning the shop.

    I build all sorts, all from scratch. My Teles seem to have done well around here.
