A Big Job Worth It In The End

When we built our log home we downsized from our big five bedroom house. We’ve lived here for 17 years now and I need more room! One thing we didn’t think too much about was storage space! Oh, we have some but not enough for me! I’m a keeper… I love antiques…books…

So we’re trying to make use of every place where it can be made usable.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have a small utility room or laundry room. I’m swallowing my pride and showing you some shelves. It’s such an embarrassment.

So we decided to clear this all out and build shelves from the floor to the ceiling!

It was a big job…Jerry worked so hard most of the day. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt has to be perfect…






He putting the shelves in here.


Break time!








The shelf  unit is  in and partially loaded with stuff!!!

This is the bottom two thirds of the shelves.






Top two thirds…

You can see they go clear to the ceiling! I have shelves to spare! Well, probably tomorrow I’ll have them all filled! What a difference!

A job well done…!

Thanks, Jerry!

    Nice job! Dad seems to have a lot of energy this spring. He is getting lots of stuff done. I am so glad to see that.


    • I’ve been thinking the same thing! It’s so good to see him taking an interest in doing jobs around the property and house. It’s raining today so maybe he can rest up before tackling a new job! 🙂
