I think I just did my last major painting. Probably get joe home again for a few more things loaded out but that organic moving of things may come soonish. Within a couple weeks I figure.

I love reading all this.
Reinforces my decision that I’m never moving and it will be my kids problem to clean out the house and garage when I’m too old.. ::)
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

Amen

I should have done a lot of this years ago on a slower schedule.

And the place still needs siding and at least a few windows

I've been taking a box/week to Good Will since Abigail moved in 2 years ago.  There's always more stuff to go somehow.

we're working on getting rid of a lot of stuff too..
sasha found a group on fb called buy nothing, just post stuff and someone comes to get it, she's had a bunch of sucess with that, just kind of slow going.  we also have a pile for goodwill or such, just have to take it...

Straightened, cleaned, welded and ground. Still need to plate the inside and squirt some paint on it.

Could run as-is short term. Nice.






Top of the webbing and the deck was keeping it together. Inner rail fine. Other side fine.
