The Best Father’s Day Gift Ever

full potential

 

Whether your father is a golfer, a gardener or a “gearhead,” the one thing that will warm his heart (and maybe convince him to raise your allowance) is a clean and organized garage.

During the Spring, Christmas decorations, snow shovels and winter gear are often moved over to accommodate gardening tools, the lawn mower, bicycles and other warm weather gear. The winter is also a time when some things get dumped in the garage—just to get them out of the house. This can make the garage a really big mess.

If your dad’s car has been relegated to the driveway because of all of that “stuff,” he would probably appreciate a clean and tidy garage—one that has room for his car.

The best way to clean the garage is step-by-step:

  1. Pull everything out of the garage and evaluate.
  2. Throw out anything that is broken or not worth saving.
  3. Move things back into the house that should be there.
  4. Donate things that are no longer needed, but still usable, e.g. the tricycle that junior has outgrown.

Now it is time to evaluate what is left and figure out the best storage solutions. It is also time to decide on how the garage will be used.

Does dad like to work in the garage? Consider a work bench and cabinet system.  Is he a gardener? There are many options for storing gardening tools.  Does he like to entertain? An epoxy floor coating will make the space more like a room.  Adding an all-weather refrigerator will give the family a place to store extra food and beverages for those family gatherings and parties.
