The book and this site have been very valuable tools for me throughout the whole process. I knew nothing of owner-building a home prior to this and had not even planned on doing it until I was forced to with the loss of my other house, so I had to learn everything and learn it quick. The book and this site helped me thru it all. You really can't do enough planning. 1,000 hours is not enough.

Well now, I was able to spend the afternoon doing some garage cleanup and actually made some good progress.

I finally have all of the tubs of nails and screws and miscellaneous all sorted.  The resultant and badly oil-stained boxes that were holding all of this debris have been moved into the living room for (eventual) burning, and I did yet another round of sweeping to get everything that all of this stuff had been sitting on.

I also got a few more tools put up onto the pegboards and then started sorting containers to hold the big nails/screws that I had left over from building the original shed.  I'll have to do more of that later this summer (tearing down the last of the old shed is on the Summer To Do list) and I'll no doubt have to figure out a better places to store all of these things right now (an old Dickey's BBQ cup).  But that's down the road.

I think maybe I'm going to need two more good days to get that garage finished up.  I've basically now got the room to start moving the BIGGER stuff around (such as the pedestals with fixed power tools).  Once that's all down I've got to move the remainder of the scaffolding from the garage into the house in preparation of working on the antler chandelier (gotta work up there and that means scaffolding).  I can then move back all of the coiled pipe that will be used later this summer and I frankly think I'll have freed enough room to actually pipe the Gator inside!

But that's down the road.  For now, I'm just glad that the end of this particular phase of the festivities looks to be in sight!

I feel your pain Steven!  Although we can begin moving about our garage a bit better now that the cabinets are out and installed, it is still a totally disorganized mess.  Unfortunately, it will have to wait until the project is over, or at least until I get a CofO.  Can’t spend time on anything else at the moment.
