I had to retake the picture several times so I didn't accidentally infer that there's too much open space in my shop. Right now I can get 2 tractors and a pickup in there but you can't move around. I should be able to get 2 combines in there but that's not happening without a lot of cleaning. My goal is to be able to get my brothers planter in by the end of February so I am having to be ruthless and make a lot of hard decisions on what to keep.

Default A rare sighting

This is the new shop in its gloriously spacious, uncorrupted first stage of existence...

It all goes downhill from here doesn’t it?
Obviously it’s so empty because it IS empty haha, I know I can’t ever expect to keep it THIS clean .. but still, it’s already cringe-y to imagine how quickly my hoarding-tendencies will be revealed in one big downward spiral of impulsive events, blinded by the “need-to-do-this-project-RIGHT-NOW- mentality, driven by an average of 29.8 distractions per hour, and for lack of a better term..SQUIRRELS..
I also love to get level 100 excited about dragging home really worthless scrap metal and other clutter-y material (easily mistaken for treasure, I tell you)

I can see it now.
Tell me there’s hope?

The only hope or chance you have is to become a procrastinator and lose the keys, and then procrastinate about calling a locksmith to help let you back in

But it is hope...

Nope, I cannot tell you that but I can tell you that we do not imbed images (use of the IMG tags) on Shop Floor Talk.
You can read the FAQ if you're curious but the main reason is to prevent people from using off-site hosting for pictures, then just pasting in a boilerplate page of unedited huge image files which then disappear next time they edit their Photobucket pages.

You can use the paper clip icon after you've uploaded your attachments of just let them display underneath your text, which is our normal method.

Procrastination is something I’m fairly familiar with
I would be capable of this!
Any chance you speak from experience with this? Lol

Oh sorry! Thanks for letting me know..I didn’t actually even realize I was doing that to be honest *
(...had to just go google what imbedding an image meant..I sort of get it I think..)
Press the paper clip. Got it.

Well, Very possible, but mine is more an OCD sort of issue when it comes to the shop and my tools I have tools that are 20 yrs. old had the crap used out of them... but look less than a month old
