I highly doubt there's a Canadian garage with a cleaner floor than mine. Maintaining a spotless floor during the inhospitable Canadian winter isn't always an easy feat, but the Swisstrax floor and channel drain/catch basin system are a huge help. The weather threw me a bit of a bone this weekend, so I took the opportunity to clean the floor and empty the basin before another polar vortex hits! Check it out:
With the arrival of my new AR630TSS pressure washer, it was time to say farewell to my Kobalt/AR Blue Clean 390SS electric pressure washer. This unit has been with me for almost five years and served me well over that time. I passed it on to a local friend so it can continue helping the world stay a clean place!
I am so happy to be introducing a new pressure washer system into the garage. I will be sharing the full story behind my AR630TSS acquisition in a forthcoming video, but I had to figure out how I was going to store it in the garage. I decided to position it in the dead centre of the garage on the house wall. Here, it will allow easy and convenient access to all corners of the garage. I sourced a 16"x24" John Boos & Company stainless steel shelf. This is a robust shelf that is specifically made for commercial kitchens so I felt it was the perfect choice to support the near-60lb AR unit. I removed the lower of my two Craftsman metal pegboard panels and affixed a 1" backer plate of wood to the wall using nails, screws and construction adhesive. This slab of wood isn't going anywhere. I used 3" wood screws to attach the shelf supports to the wall. I painted the panel with my darkest colour, "Film Noir". I am currently waiting on the MTM hose reel that will be positioned directly under the shelf. More updates coming soon!
An extended Family Day weekend presented an opportunity for me to do some serious organizing in the garage. The garage was already highly organized, but with the spare time I set my sights on each and every drawer and cabinet in the space. Each of them is now completely and utterly dialled in. Here's some pics demonstrating just how organized I have this place at the moment. The trick will now be maintaining it to this level. There's a few significant changes to the product displays coming up so stay tuned.
