After the new roof I started this project summer of 2015. I stored everything that wouldn't fit in the basement in the carriage house. I dreaded going in there because I had to manuever my way around it all. The cleaning was continuous throughout. I had wanted to keep it as original as I could when painting so the doors were painted yellow and two walls were painted a silver gray, the wall with the window opposite the doors was painted yellow, the window panes painted white. In and out, in and out was the routine. Everything inside had to be moved out to paint and in the process I was able to eliminate a lot of stuff. There was an electric stove that I dismantled and scrapped for $15. Yeah! Mind you all the things inside were my mother's from a storage unit she had and my son who lived with us for a while. So I still was left with a lot of things to organize. I confiscated empty boxes from work to help me with that which made it easier when moving stuff in and out. This year I decided to make the carriage house 'Von' friendly . I designated two corners for my tools and such and made use of the space between the wall frames for storage then put up a couple of shelves for displaying. The carriage house still needs some touch ups but until I can relinquish some of the boxes it is fine for now.
