I found that the stuff I deemed too useful to throw out, actually never needed to get used until I did.The big white door at the other end says it's a garage, but what does it know?
From the other direction. For being in the middle of at least two projects (one of which "donated" the cabinets you see against the wall on the right in the picture above), it's not looking that messy at all.
We've lived in this house for not quite 42 years, so stuff too useful to throw out has tended to accumulate . . .
