    Red face On the horns of a dilemma

    I'm sure all of you must have faced this at one time, When Jan moved here she brought with her a few tools (router, sander, some hand tools, etc.) and I am trying to find a home for each of them in the shop. My problem? I can't figure out if I have too much stuff or too little storage. Maybe I need a bunkhouse!

    Bunkhouse or doghouse. Are you in trouble already?

    Rennie,

    Best advice? Place them prominently, so she sees them every time she walks in. Hide yours in a cabinet!

    Me, I've got Doorlink's season ski pass from the 90's (with her picture laminated inside) hanging in my shop. And a bunch of other stuff like that. She smiles every time she sees it...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I recently added a small shed. Only 8' x 10' but when loaded with shelves it eased that cramped feeling in the shop "tout de suit".

    You need a basement. Then you'd be able to get that laundry equipment out of your shop!!

    but yes, more storage is always needed...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Isn't that what they built the laundry mats for?
