Operation Cleansweep

For my mother-in-law's birthday present, we (Roy, me, Mandy, Paul, and Jake) decided to give her the gift of cleanliness. At Patty's request, we cleaned out her garage and driveway. She rented a dumpster just for this purpose. A couple of before shots:




Needless to say, less than an hour after starting this gigantic project, the dumpster was already almost full and Paul had to go dumpster-diving in order to make more space for more junk. 4 hours later, the garage was organized, everything was put away, and we had a full dumpster, a truck bed full of stuff to take to the dump, and a ton of consolation prizes.



Here are the after shots:




The garage door actually closes! And there's a driveway! We totally rock, and I totally need a shower.
