I'm tired of not being able to find anything or do any productive with in my shop. I've got some winter projects I need to do. I've also got to make room for the wood stove. Here's the before... Wish me luck on the after.

Clean up never stops, as soon as the shop is clean something comes along to mess it up again.

Sorry but I consider that spotless compared to mine, crew from Hoarders could get loss here :bigrofl:

P.S. but I do know where things are about 90% of the time :smilewink:

Heck, lots of room in there yet. Mine you practically need to crawl on floorboards of one to get around to another. Good thing BIG tractors are high and have all that "dump" room under them to put small stuff. Will be trying to put 8lbs of goods in a 5lb bag when I close up soon. I usually don't DO the shop in winter and pack it full and forget it till spring. I did work in there some last year, was warmer and had LP to heat it. We'll see what we get this year. Now, just dragged a few more home and there WILL BE something outside this year. Hope to be able to cover with a big tarp, but who knows, they never seem to stay on for full winter.

Al, I have the same experience. It's like buying it all over again, only for FREE. lol.

David, your shop looks pretty good. Should be neat as a pin in the after shots. Good luck.

It takes me two days to clean the shop and about twenty minutes to make a mess out of it. Reminds me of riding snowmobiles. Two days working on them for 20 minutes of riding. I don't own a snowmobile and my shop is never very clean.

PS. I understand the newer snowmobiles are much more reliable.

Looks better than mine. I was thinking I see row after row of storage bins along the wall and room for at least one tractor yet. In mine when I get started on a project something has to go outside. Have fun finding everything that is forgotten in the corners.

I should have the room to get 2 projects at once going. Im abandoning that lost cause project horse this weekend and going to start something new. I do decent at keeping the shop somewhat clean as long as im not working on anything. Im going to make a valiant effort to keep it straight over the winter. Come spring I should be able to go full throttle with whatever I want to do.

I don't understand. I can still see the floor.

In my shop, to cross the room, I have to crawl over the table saw.
