    Like it says, it was time to clean up the garage. Although it wasn't bad, it's much better now. Sorry I haven't been on here much but now you can see why. Here are some before pics.

    There is more shots in the gallery but this should be enough.

    Have a good one boys. BTW, I have someone that might buy my house :D
    That would be cool. Talk to you soon.

    Thanks!
    And yes, it's time for a yard sale! and this is only the garage :rolleyes:
    I have a 1200 sq. ft. barn too! :doah:
    I sold the scout and one trailer. Still have the 4x4 van for sale and a bunch of other stuff to go. The wife is always saying "if it won't fit on the boat, you don't need it!" :haha: :haha:
    At least it's cleaned up now. next comes the barn or just sell and have a BIG fire.

    If I could get my garage to look like your "BEFORE" pic, my wife would be very happy. I have a path.

    Good job!

    I wish my garage was that clean!...I have stuff piled up everywhere,all the shelves are full of parts,and stuff I probably should have tossed,but cant bear too,like tapes,records,and photos of country stars my friend had I got when he passed away 11 years ago,etc..I find parts to vehicles I no longer own in the rubble quite often!...now,if I sell or junk a vehicle,I try to put ALL the spare parts that fit it in the vehicle so I dont have a bunch of "leftovers"!.

    The only downside to my quonset garage is there isn't much of a "straight" wall to hang things on--I only have 4' of straight wall,before it starts to curve,so it limits the number of posters,and other things I can hang on the walls..I have a great deal of autographed pictures I'd like to display,but I already have the back wall and every other spot filled up!..its a shame to leave them tucked away in a drawer!..

    I have seen 2 garages like yours,2 guys that live nearby have log cabin houses and garages!...I love log cabins,if I owned this lot my moms house is on (before 2.2 of the 4 acres were sold) I would have built a log cabin house!)

    I read in Maine , log cabins are exempt from real estate taxes!..If I ever live there,thats what I'd build!.. :D

    That's too funny that you saw that :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:
    I use that for work and as you can see from the pictures, I never seem to make it into the house after work. Some times I think I must be running on energizer batteries because I just keep going and going and going and drinking and then pass out (well kinda).
    Thanks for the complements but if you had a 2M+ house for sale, I think you would work harder on keeping it clean. It sucks most of the time.
    I had a guy look at the house yesterday and met him today. It seems that he is into dirt bikes, sleds etc. and really likes the house, garage & barn so will see. My fingers are crossed. I want a place I can let go now and then and not care too much.
