……..but at least it is tidy. The workshop area contains a mish-mash of storage cupboards and shelving. It does not look particularly pretty but is effective.
Yesterday was the last day of our long weekend and GMan decided to continue his goal of clearing up downstairs. On Saturday he had swept and water-blasted the open concreted area under the house so yesterday he turned his attention to the workshop area. I do not have any ‘before’ photos but here are a few shots of the end result.
The dismantled cupboards in the right-hand photo are from our old kitchen (renovated 7 years ago) which were repurposed as temporary storage. They are now destined to be rubbish as the chipboard is all breaking up and we simply no longer need them. GMan will cut them into smaller pieces and gradually dispose of them via our regular rubbish collection.
Cupboards and shelves were re-arranged. Worn-out or useless rubbish were discarded. Items no longer required were listed on Facebook Buy/Swap/Sell sites. Bits of wood were cut up for firewood.
The area is by no means decluttered completely but we have got rid of some stuff, made sure similar items are stored together and generally know what we have.
As always, it is a work in progress but it feels good to have taken another step towards keeping only those things that we really need.
