Joel redid our closet in the bedroom:

This isn’t the first (awesome) closet that Joel has done in this house. Last year, he put up shelves in the closet in my workroom. This has been such a boon in helping me manage my mess. We’ve got plans for some more shelving in my sewing room and a re-design of the way in which I store my sewing patterns (and sewing/fashion/craft books and magazines) forthcoming. After the next round of shelving goes up, I’m going to hang my pictures and call the workroom completed. I have some really great pictures for my workroom walls, too!

He also created some much needed bike parking for the living room:

(this is about half of the combined Davis/Dyke bicycle stable…eeek!)

There are also pegs for coats and bags by the front door:
front room coat-and-bag pegs

bedroom coat-and-robe pegs
Pegs for bathrobes and jackets and a shelf for helmets & hats in the bedroom.

And the extra shelf for the spices in the kitchen cupboards is his handiwork, too.

We both like having a proper place to put things, and I consider us especially fortunate that Joel not only likes organizing, he has a knack for building shelving and other “storage solutions.”
