I cannot live in this squalor for another second. I know -- know!--- that I own a couple of studfinders, tape measures, and screwdrivers that are totally lost in this mess. I can't find anything when I need it. It got so bad I was hoarding tools in the kitchen cabinets when I found them, so they wouldn't get lost in the garage again. Eventually I had an entire section of the kitchen crammed full of tools.

(this is AFTER I cleared out a bunch of crap! Like an oven and range hood I wasn't using. lol)

So here's the progress. Slowly, slowly...someday I will be a big girl who can find her tools when she needs them:

I'm building this using scraps from the treehouse and kitchen countertops. I've run out of wood so I have to get some 2X4s.  Everything was coated with a thick layer of pollen, so it's been fun. I'll post pics when it's done!

  1. This looks great!! It made me laugh about tools in the kitchen so you can find them instead of losing them in the garage...I know firsthand how that is...LOL!!


  2. I just read through all your posts and I'm so impressed - you go girl! I"m looking forward to seeing your future projects.

  3. You're doing an amazing job! Your garage looks fantastic.

    Thank you for visiting The Domestic Fringe. I appreciate the kind words you had for my remade kitchen. Hope you stop by again!

  4. I have tools all over the house and can never find a tape measure when I need one. Your garage looks great.


Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
