So as I walk up and down the street, peering into my neighbors garages I notice many have yard tools lining one (or more) walls. I don't want that, especially since I only use a few tools the majority of the time. So I found this idea and executed on it. It works great. When I add more tools, I will add some hooks to keep them from accidentally falling out of their slot. Additions will be some hooks screwed to the back to hang extension cords. If I need it, I will make another....but that will be a while.
|It was so nice to get this stuff off the floor and hanging.|
|The back and supports are 2x6's I snagged from the new house dumpster. The slotted top is 3/4 MDF scavenged from the pallet I used for the "pallet rack" I built a month back. So this rack was free! I lagged it to studs with .25 3.5" lag screws|
|Just discovered while making my kids pancakes Sunday morning. The bottom corner cabinet is splitting from the top. Already emailed the PM. He ordered a new door today.|
I may have to frame this last pic. A man, his beer and knife flipping burgers on his grill in front of his new house.
A few other thoughts.
I am amazed at little discrepancies I find here and there. It doesn't bother me as my PM is great at taking care of stuff as it gets discovered. Sunday I found the base molding on the far wall of the Morning Room missing caulk corner to corner. How have I not seen that? Last week we closed the master closet for the first time and found it binds so bad it barely closes. Again, this weekend I discovered the kick plate under the cabinet next to the fridge was floppy loose.
There are a few other little things. I am not saying that any of this bothers me. I find humor and/or amazement that I have been in over two months and never noticed some of this stuff. It just further emphasizes my belief that so many things can fade into the grey noise of our life.
So I emailed my PM asking what can be done under his control versus what should go on a "10 month" list. His reply was that he will knock it out. nice!
