I think if you bought that, you could actually work on top of it, only problem is that you would not be able to open the drawers.

I could buy a whole bunch of my toolboxes for $18,000 (or $15,000) and have
a whole lot more storage than that POS. And WTF is with that God Awful color.

Last week I found myself doing a little plumbing repair 2 doors down from the first house I ever bought.
I paid $11,750 for it, minus $500 sweat equity for painting a few wooden window screen frames.
It had 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms but that toolbox might not have fit in the garage.

I think it is do anyone else but the owner would be embarrassed to borrow any tools from it

That's extreme green. Very popular with the jolly rancher generation.

Uhhhhhh which Neal? This Neal only has snap on, craftsman, cornwell, John deere and Waterloo boxes. Not a single lista, yet.

Rmack did a sweet set up with some listas/vidmars and I'm looking forward to copying it in the future.

And stupid sells. There are some ridiculous colors/colours (for our northern friends ) coming out now. My two most hated are white, yes a white tool box, and Mac's Arctic Orange. The orange actually seers your retina a bit.

I didn't see that in the item description.
Don't know what he'd do for a sink and shower, but the right bottom drawer could be a composting toilet.
