I came across this site and The Owner-Builder Book early on. I gained a lot of valuable information from the book and this site.

So now that I've got those curtains up I figured things were about as done as they could be until I get the chandelier up there, so I decided to turn my attention to a more down-to-Earth annoyance.  As it happened, issues with the last thing I did (the curtains) kinda led towards the next item on the list.

I had started to put away tools and such that I had accumulated during  work on the door and the curtains.  Ladders, hammers, screw drivers, about 10 different kinds of stain--I'd dragged a lot out there over the course of the last few months.  And as I  started to clean things up and put them away, I quickly ran into a dilemma--I couldn't put things up.  The garage was SO FANTASTICALLY MESSY that I couldn't physically store away things that I was trying to put away because there was an unorganized mess there.  I did what I could, but I realized that the next step was clearly to get the garage cleaned up a bit.

So that's what I resolved to do.  There's a great mess in there as it is so I know it's going to take some time, but I got a decent enough start at least.

Today's chores were focused on cleaning up the much of the recycles that had built up in various corners of the garage, and trying to clean up some of the muck I'd been dragging in for the last few months.  Along the way I fixed a couple of minor things around the house, so  that was a win.

The recycles were relatively easy to take care of.  There were several trash cans that I'd been putting them into for a while and (as it happened) several mice had found their doom falling into the can and then unable to get out.  I got everything bagged up put into the pile of trash for eventual delivery to the transfer station.

Along the way I sorted out a lot of cardboard and a bit of Styrofoam; the Styrofoam is planned to be delivered tomorrow as part of my chores.  The cardboard got cut up and added to the burn pile for eventual usage.

After that I dig a lot of sweeping--basically mud that had been tracked in by the Trailblazer and then dried into dust.  I by no means whatsoever got everything -- there's a lot of bits of accumulation over the last few months -- but it's a start.

More to come though; it's going to take a few good weekends to tidy this mess up.  But it needs doing or I'll never get tools organized enough for any future fun....
