A funny thing happens when you go raid a neighbour’s broken down fence.
First, it sits in your own front driveway for your neighbour’s viewing pleasure for WEEKS on end.
Then you finally take it apart with this handy dandy idea.
But there was a massive pile that never made it. It’s been sitting on the back sidewalk all winter collecting more mildew. And was looking like one giant mess.
So one sunny day, I finally dragged the pressure washer beast out of hiding, and put it to work.
But… then of course you need to find a place to store the wood…
Which is generally when my single car garage workshop is at its worst.
Nothing a little focus won’t cure!
I sold a bike that had been in the way for a good solid 2 years!
And the rest filled up the back of my truck, and got dropped off to various places.
I even took GALLONS of old, half used and dried up paint to the recycle depot!
Bare space on the work tables = one happy junker rarin’ to build again
Here’s the magazine worthy tour awhile back. 🙂
I emptied 2 tanks of gas for all the wood, the stairs, patio roof / rails / floor, shed, sidewalk, travel trailer, and yard junk.
It felt good to see it all squeaky clean again! Maybe this is the year to do something cool to those stairs… now that they’re clean and all.

It felt good to showcase a cleaning post once again! Here’s a few more from the Crap to Clean series…
How are you making out? Still going full tilt?
