How did you talk the spouse into parking it in the living room? Surely your garage is not that neat and cleared out to allow for a car to be parked in there?!?!?! Please tell me I'm not the only one here that can't get a car into the garage because of all the 'valuable' stuff out there? I just shake my head when I am told how this $5 chest of drawers from a yard sale and those boxes of old kids books and those two old baby play stations, etc, etc,etc are more important to keep in the garage than the $25k car.

You're not the only one :cheers:

That just leads to more stuff. :lol:

My garage is only one of many places I have things stashed. Shop, lean to, shed, guest house...I dread the day that we have to move.

I wish the garage was wider, but it is original to the house and I don't think it is worth altering for a few feet.

Just kidding Rob, when I bought my place it came with a 60x52 garage. Between myself, wife, son, daughter & friends it's now pretty full. Every time I manage to empty a area somehow other stuff appears, if I ever need to move it will be auction time if everybody that stores their stuff doesn't get it out it's gone. Except for my good stuff. :lol:

Since it is Sunday...I'll give you a BIG AMEN from the choir loft on that one Rob!!!! :angel:

We already have two 12x30 sheds, 24x44 garage w/ a 20x44 upstairs and the house attic is filled with dozens of totes, not to mention the basement storage.

I am leaning towards bigger bonfires! :devil:

I can just about smell the "new" through those pics. Sharp lookin' ride!

When I first looked at this house 11 years ago, I saw the barn, and the yard ... then flew to a payphone as fast as I could to call the wife. Tell the realtor WE'LL TAKE IT!! Barn is 26x38 plus a 9x26 addition on the back. I said never in a million years will I fill this thing up.

I did it in 3. :lol:

Nice rural setting,Rob. In 2001 we moved to were we live now,after 23 yrs at the previous place, I had no clue that my wife collected so much stuff,moving does help to thin the stuff. I like to thin my stuff every year,that way I can better control how much accumulates.

Rural setting indeed...if you ever stop by a windy day you will see that you aren't the only one on a "windy hill". The old house has weathered some pretty rough storms.

We built a 2 car garage. Every summer it fills up so you can barley find the floor....yet...every winter we manage to find space for two cars...well... some winters just one car. LOL


Expenditures rise to meet the income.


Stuff fills the space provided.


The 50/50/90 rule is more real than you might think! (if some situation has a 50/50 chance of being right or wrong, there's a 90% probability that it will be wrong.)
