I know what I am about to start today will cause some extra pain in my entire but mostly my back. In the past year or so we were entertaining having our garage turned into a bedroom with full bath for Robert my Brother In-Law who has epilepsy and who we moved in with us to provide care he was not getting at the facilities he was in. So in that process we moved everything out of the garage for that to begin. At the same time our daughter completed college and moved back in for awhile and all her stuff went into storage also.
Little did we know that with all the upgrades the city wanted from us, permits, labor and materials the renovation was going to run $25,000 – $30,000. Yes, thousands, the same cost as to add a new addition to the house. Well everything in storage Roberts, Rachel’s and our own was moved back into the garage.
Here are photos of how the garage “Pile” looks today September 1, 2013, and if you have not guessed this is my procrastination, this is my chore, this is my pain. I am giving myself until the end of the month to organize it and then Trish and I need to go through all of it and Reduce, Reuse or Recycle. Wish us luck.
