Best Garage EVER!
We have finally finished the garage. I had no idea that when we started it we were delving into a two week long task, but now that it is done, hurray!
Some things that I realized that I am completely grossed out by are:
-Cockroach nests in the walls. (I just went ahead and painted right over those babies.)
-What I thought were oils spots that turned out to be cat pee. (Now that the floors are sealed and painted the spots glow yellow. Luckily animal messes are Tom's responsibility.)
-Macaroni pictures exposed to moisture hatch weevils (Didn't actually find any living, just a
bunch of exoskeletons.)
-I had actually laid down on the garage floor on almost a daily basis. (I am frankly shocked I am alive to talk about it.)
There is nothing more satisfying that starting a project and seeing it though to the end. I am very proud of Tom. He really did most of the work. I had the less taxing role of telling Tom where I wanted things to go, and reminiscing while I went though all my old junk. In a negotiation over who would pick up Dave, I even got him to mop the floor when he was all finished.
Notice the cat pee in the bottom left in the last picture? Highly visible, huh.
