Going to the mat

Steven continues Garage Therapy. It’s taken about a week, so far, an hour or two each day …

Above, the twin racks are built, screwed to the wall, on the right, and the supply of lumber left over from construction is now off the floor. That allowed Steven to roll the old workshop carts from Sea Eagle over from the west wall of the garage, tucking them under the lumber racks. With that shift, Steven was able to clear the west wall of everything, sweep up shards of linoleum tile that remained from demo, to unroll three of the garage floor mats that we used at Sea Eagle.

It doesn't look like much -- red rubber mats rolled out on a garage floor. But, to Steven, this is a significant milestone in the process of moving in, instead of just moving. He is taking control of the garage; it's no longer just a storage container for boxes. The tools have a home, albeit temporary; the lumber has a home, on the wall, sorted by type and size; and floor space is opening up.
