I have a buddy who lives a few miles down the road from us. The houses are about a two-and-a-half-mile canal walk away. Since we live closer now, he has been keeping up with what we are doing with our garage and this website. He had a few questions for me that prompted some new research…

9 Things to Ask Yourself Before Organizing Your Garage

I don’t know about you, but there was a time for us when the garage was a continuous catch-all. When we were remodeling our old house. Then when we were moving (boxes EVERYWHERE!)

NewAge Bold Series Garage Storage Cabinets – Owner’s Review

Picture with me, if you will, my old garage. 50-year-old house, two-car garage that had been largely a dusty, cluttered “original” until I came along.
