A couple of weeks ago we finally decided to buy a new freezer. We have a reasonable amount of space in our fridge/freezer in the kitchen as well as a bar-sized freezer in the workshop downstairs. I manage for most of the year but when we have a glut of produce that I want to freeze it becomes a real challenge. As we work on growing more food I expect the pressure to become even greater.
We decided on the best location for the freezer which led to a major clean-up and re-organisation of the workshop area.
Here are a few ‘before’ photos.
The best location for the new freezer was where the white cupboard is standing.
The existing freezer was on the other side of the room, along with piles of cardboard that we use as weedmat in the garden.
A corner of the double garage which is next to the workshop.
You can see some of the changes in the following photos.
The no longer required carseat has been re-homed and this corner was perfect for the white cupboard which contains all of our camping gear.
The cardboard is neatly contained in and behind the box under the end of the bench.
The black cupboard has been given away as it was now excess to our requirements. If you have less stuff, you need less storage. We re-arranged various shelves and the metal toolbox for more effective use of the space.
And finally, the new freezer in place.
I will show you more about the freezer tomorrow.
