Okay almost gone. At least they are empty now…
Now that I have the majority of the fence material out in the back yard, being installed, I had some time to put up my last 2 shop lights… Which may not seem like much, but those boxes take up a bunch of room in my shop, not to mention the last 2 bulbs in the original case of bulbs.
So now the shop has a grand total of 6, 4 foot, 2 bulb shop light fixtures neatly arranged along the ceiling, and one that is still somewhat will nilly that hasn’t been yanked down yet (that one is slated to go on the pending workbench hutch in the near future…).
So the 3 big boxes are now bundled up, waiting to be kicked to the curb tomorrow. I have also been finding empty boxes from various projects and equipment, like small parts boxes from the portable AC unit, a box from my Crate MBX-10 practice amp, tons of dialysis supply boxes (from my BIL… I need to talk with him, or my wife about proper box disposal…).
I am so annoyed with the poor quality of the Plano plastic shelving units that are hogging up that west wall, that I am busting my backside trying to empty them out, and I will be throwing them out. If any LJs from the Houston / Galveston metro area are interested, PM me, come get them, and they are yours for free! They would be fine for lighter loads than I am doing. I need the heavy duty, MUCH thicker plastic shelves that Lowes is carrying these days…
So okay, now the lighting is more or less complete, I am starting to see this thing called floor again, my fence is looking, well almost like a fence again, and before you know it, I will be replacing / repairing the siding and trim around the garage doors, including fixing up my vents. Oh and also finishing up insulating that second garage door…
By the time the shop is good and ready for the A/C to really be effective, I will be needing to heat that sucker!
Oh well, at least I am making progress right?
All in all, I am more or less happy with the shape my shop is taking, but I have so far to go, it is easy to get discouraged (I have to roll out my smoker, and move a pile of boxes just to find my table saw).
