Hello, hello!  Happy Monday AND first day of class!  While I really (and I mean REALLY) enjoy my summers I am looking forward to being back into a schedule and a routine.  Ok, give me a month of it then I’ll want my summer break back but for now it’s a good thing.  I’m more productive when I have a schedule filled with meetings and things to juggle.  Is that just me?

Anyways, no update on the front porch because neither company has returned my calls for a quote. So, while I wait on what to do with the porch, I installed some shelving that I have been meaning to get to BEFORE I left for summer but never got around to it.  The shelves were literally leaning up again the wall just waiting to be installed soooo I now have more kitchen shelving!

Update on the garage

Happy Friday friends!  What do you have planned for this weekend?  I hope it’s something fun!  Me, I’ve got fun plans that involve some mountain trail running. =)  I’ll leave you with this update of my garage.

As mentioned before, the garage is a bit (ok, a lot) bigger than I had designed/planned on.  This was one of the items my builder took the liberty of doing himself.  While I would like more interior living space instead of this storage space, it is nice to have everything out of the way and a bit of room to move in there.  This is what it looked like upon first moving in.

While this is pretty well organized, it wasn’t user friendly.  I installed the shelving on 3 walls to make room for the bikes below – however, upon placing the rubbermaid containers on the shelves, it didn’t leave much room to walk in between to actually get a bike out or get into one of the containers. After some work this weekend, here’s the most recent – organized garage.
