THE TOOLSHED

When I arrived that morning, I knew right away that I would have the satifaction of making a huge impact in the life of my client!

I opened the door to find the shed completely filled to the brim with stuff!

My client had been saving things she was finished with but hadn't completely released yet including her daughter's treasured and outgrown dollhouse, twin mattress set and an assortment broken small appliances.

Once we pulled everyting out of the middle of the toolshed, we got a better feel for the space.

PULL IT ALL OUT!

See what you have

One secret to organizing a space is to completely pull everyting out to see what you have and sort it by category. That makes decisions easier and more informed.

Made piles for different types of materials for recycling including broken electronics, metal, styrene, small appliances, shoes and curbside. Anything usable was set out on near the curb with a large "FREE" sign.

We laid down a tarp to place items that would need to be properly stored again in the shed: camping & emergency supplies, gardening & hardware tools, bikes and materials for future projects.

Once everyting was out of the shed, we knocked down the cobwebs, wiped down the shelving and swept the floor. Then we could clearly see the space and rearrange shelves around to create a surface for working on projects right under the natural light of window.

Then we carefully and thoughtfully brought in the items to be stored so that everthing is within reach and sight. We hung tools, labeled totes and found nooks for each treasure.

We installed hooks for the bikes directly opposite the door for easy access and to minimize the ammount of floor space they consumed. Extension cords and garden tools were stashed in plain sight on hooks while lumber was stashed in the space between studs.
