Organized the shed

I got stir-crazy today and decided to clean out and organize our shed out back. It's been getting pretty bad - can't walk in without tripping over something, junk piled on top of junk, nothing easy to find or retrieve.

I didn't find a whole lot to throw out. I did find a very large stack of shingles, and a baker's dozen 8-foot 1x2, among other various lumber. The 1x2s went up into the rafters (open rafters are great for storage), as did our extra bike tires and the 15 pound roofer's felt left over from the family room floor. The leftover wood from the family room floor was stashed in the corner behind the door, where they'll be out of the way. All flower pots are now emptied of old dirt and ready to be reused, and the new half-dozen that I found wrapped up are out on display and ready to be picked up for whatever we might need them for.

The shelves are now organized in a somewhat sane manner, some tools hung back on the hooks, and other things stahed well out of the way but still accessible.

All in all, I think I tripled the available space in the shed, and in the process gained a lot more accessibility. I still haven't put into place any serious storage-management stuff - more hooks on the walls, baskets, etc. which will really help out as we collect more stuff. Maybe in a few weeks.
