    Having gotten through just that task, get a dumpster! That makes it easy to toss stuff. Doesn't have to be a 9 yard sized one, but your are going to clean up whether you like it of not! After I accepted that reality, I bought my Tuff Shed, that's all parts and material storage for me, My Stockroom! Since I have only a 1 car garage, I had to custom build the work table, it does triple duty, welding, wood, storage... There happened t be a hardware store that went out of business many moons ago, I bought an Isle of shelving... that lines one wall. Tools, power tools, some parts. everything's laid out for efficiency, so far it's working.
    Good luck on your rebuild, don't rush, think about it, kick some ass. and getter done! Then ENJOY!!!

    How long does it need to be out? What about a POD rental?

    Pod would be spendy. 24 dry / cure time. Extract day 1, day 2 workers grind, seal and finish, day 3 replace things.

    I found some tarps on eBay for pretty cheap.

    we just moved so things are highly organized in bins but some stuff like fridge, workbench and tool bench are too big to move too far.

    I am not quite in the same predicament BUT with the Florida Room Reno scheduled "as soon as roof panels ship" we "priced" storage for everything and the easiest solution became a U-haul truck for a week, Pods, shipping container and such become costly due to delivery and pick-up fees..

    And yesterday U-haul sweetened the deal with a months free rental/storage if the "Reno" goes sideways... :hattip:

    Now granted I have used them since the 90's and the young lady setting up my reservation "Giggled" when she realized I have been a customer longer than she's been alive :rolleyes:o_O But they just do "Rental Right"...

    Good luck on all of it, storage, your Reno and setting everything back up....:thumbsup:

    Back to the forum... Prepping my Tundra for a possible Hurricane.... Gotta LOVE Florida

    You would get along well with my wife. :)

    I have a clean plan for the build, all that is no problem. Just have to get the floor done. Last garage I was a single dude. This time I’m told I can’t use the house for my crap.

    I’ve looked at sheds a lot over the past few weeks. Prices are kinda crazy and material seems lousy. I don’t want to pay thousands for OSB walls and roof, much rather have plywood. Hardest part seems to be the foundation and floor and most sheds don’t help there. And they also don’t help with shingles or flashing.

    I figure I can cut 2x4’s and plywood just fine on my own. Do real siding. And a real door. Probably the same cost. Just tons more labor and no chance of having that by 10/3

    After a few weeks of trying to find a matching color handle and getting tired of opening the window in order to get out of the truck, finally replaced the interior door handle on the drivers side today. Took about 20 mins from start to finish. There a slight color difference between the old trim piece and the new handle, but I think it’s from years and years of sun fade.

    You might be able to get by with a clear coat respray rather than full paint.
