Creating a Workable Space in the Garage

Your garage is one of those spaces that has a lot of potential, but it’s often used as a stowaway area for the household’s extra materials. In fact, many households cannot even park their cars in the garage because of the clutter across every surface. Make your garage a workable space for almost any need by following a few simple steps.

Use the Walls

You might have tools spread out across a desk or stuffed in a garage drawer. Take a moment to think out of the box as you look at the bare walls. Add nails and shelves to the walls so that those tools can be well organized. You should be able to reach them with ease while leaving the desk relatively empty for fun projects. The wall system also shows off those attractive tools that you saved up for in the past.

Paint the Floor

Once you’ve cleaned up your tool area, take a look at the garage floor. Most households simply have a concrete foundation as their garage’s decorative flooring. Consider a paint job for the concrete. There are specialized paints available that are designed for heavy-duty garage use. You can even decorate the floor with a checkerboard design if you desire. Painting the floor also motivates you to move items out of the space and reorganize it afterward.

Add Wheels

It’s possible that most of your tools won’t fit on the walls. A tool box is necessary for those extra items. In fact, your tool box might be so heavy that you have a handy pallet jack to move it around. It’s possible to add wheels to the toolbox or pallet jack in order to organize the garage even further. Stock both toolbox and pallet jack wheels in your home so that you’re ready for any project in the future.

Consider Alternative Storage

As you continue with your garage renovation, the items that used to line the walls might be impeding the working space. Go up to your attic or down to the basement. Arrange a space for those items normally housed in the garage. You’ll be amazed at the space that you have with some organizational talent.

If you need more motivation to clean out the garage, think about its worth if you plan on selling the home in the next several years. An organized garage simply looks like an extra room to potential homebuyers. Keep the garage organized and clean, and you might have a bidding war over your property when selling time arrives.

Creating Your Dream House

 
If you’re planning to build you dream house, it’s really important to prepare first of the things needed such tools, fixings and fasteners, tools for soil sampling, materials like soapstones markings and a lot more. In this way, you can avoid in spending too much expenses for this kind of project.
Meanwhile, aside from preparing the materials and other things needed… it is also important for one to know what kind of style and idea a person would like to have for his or her house. With that, the work will be done easily and at the same time, to avoid interruptions to those who will be working your house.
If in case you are still in doubt on what kind of style and designs to put in your house, you can ask for help with an architect instead. They know what’s best for you and aside from that, you can also add up something to spice up the whole idea. But then, this idea is an additional expense as architect needs to be paid off.
However, if you want to save rather than paid for additional expenses… you could create your own idea instead. If you are lack of it, you can search all the way online. Surely, you won’t be spending too much money but then, you will be exerting effort with it though.

My Photo on a Published Book!

Two years ago, somebody approached me online about this old photo posted on my Facebook account. I thought it was some sort of scam or something coz first of all, this photo was taken with a very old digital camera I had in 2008 and I honestly didn’t find anything in this photo that could possibly make them use in a book. But I still said yes anyway and let him use it, after all, I won’t lose anything by doing so. He asked for original one but I don’t have it, so he said he will just grab the one on Facebook and see what he can do.

The designer, Jordan Santos was very good at updating me thru facebook message. He knows how to take care of his resource and I appreciate it. This past month he messaged me again apologizing for not messaging me for a while, (which to tell you the truth, I already forgot all about it by that time) and said his wife is in the state and will send me a copy of the book and some paypal gift too.  After few weeks I received a package from New York containing this book!

I have no idea how he’s gonna use the photo on the cover, I’m surprised it looked really awesome, but what more exciting was when I saw my name written on the book! Yep, that’s me, that’s my name! (celebrating inside my mind and keeping it cool). 14047338_1112778545480414_202539480277130397_o 14067780_1112778538813748_2151053300133026677_o

It was just starting to sink in me how cool it is to be included in this awesome Literature Book written by J. Neil C. Garcia. I love literature and this book is perfect for me. It’s been a while though since I’ve read such piece. Contents looks very deep, I haven’t read it but I will get into it for sure coz I wanna know how my photo was related to this book.

Thanks again Jordan Santos for giving me this awesome opportunity. It’ a great pleasure to be working with you and you may never know, in the future, you might be the one designing the COVER of my OWN Book. 🙂
