This is a combination of three days of work. I like to start a with a picture of where we are going to start to get the day going. It really does feel good to get rid of this junk.
This is all under the overhang.
It would be nice sometimes if the stuff we threw out was light…but dreams are just that.
This is how far the garage opened up to the first time. Luckily the garage doors do work.
This is how we found the piles of carpet and wood.
Under the canoe we found a ton of lawn mowers.
This is scooter I put out for free and got an incredible response. We gave it to a really nice family who came to meet us.
All the wood…
So now we are down to carpet. It is o incredibly heavy. It’s shag carpet from the 70’s. So we attempted to cut it in half. The struggle was great.
We also found a rod iron door.
Then we found this nice ladder underneath all the carpet.
another attempt to cut the carpet. Eventually we got a carpet knife. I actually found if you tear the carpet the long way it becomes way easier. Pro tip from the hoarder destroyer!!
The cleanest spot in the house!
This is an air compressor from my great grandfather. I’m told it’s for cars.
All the bike frames that we found on top of the lawnmowers.
Some home owner association signs that my grandfather kept up stairs!
Last bit of effort before the end of the week. Nice nasty gold chair from the 70’s. This is a dumpster after four days of work….
I think the biggest thing people should take away from this kind of stuff or situation is that keeping stuff because you think you might need it later becomes a burden really fast. If it overwhelms you it’s not worth it.
