Well now, been a couple of weekends working steadily around the garage has finally allowed me declare "completion"....for certain measurements of completion, anyway.  The garage cleanup is (for now) done.

Mind there's a lot of stuff still not quite as "cleared out" as I'd have liked from the last report.  The tools are all nicely cleaned up and put away other than a tiny handful of a couple of things needed for the next major project (drywall inside the door).  I've purchased the handles necessary to repair a couple of other tools (smaller sledgehammers) and moved the power tools over to one row where I can work with them down the road.  There's been a lot of sweeping of course.

The 4" socked drainpipe is all stacked in much more orderly piles in one of the garage bays, the winter tires have been stacked away onto shelving off to the side, and some old cardboard and wood which has been collected from around the garage and already been burned.

Looking forward to tomorrow I'm going to start moving the leftover ICF that I'd stashed up by the shed when I rebuilt it (I was able to move about half of it; more in a few days after we get a bout of rain) and then I want to tackle an old box of the rock siding they apparently just left when the crews were done.  Along the way I'll pull up as many raspberry canes as I can (they literally spring up like weeds up here on the disturbed soil) and either burn or dump them depending my preference at the time.

With the garage done (well, as done as it's going to be) I can now look forward to the next series of projects.  I think I'll be dividing my time between the drywall inside and looking again at dealing with the leak.  I've was able to make a dent in it with my work around the computer room door but there's still water coming in, and I'm thinking now part of the leak is from the rooftop on top of the tower.  They used the same (bad) technique to build "crickets" that would supposedly divert water towards drains.  Probably would have worked a LOT better if they actually removed the water first...the slightest leak would undermine the cricket overlay, and that's exactly what has happened.  I'm thinking formed concrete is likely the way to go.  We'll see.

One project down, more projects to go!  Keeps ya busy I reckon.
