As for the other tools such as spades, rakes, etc. I use hooks mounted to the walls of the shed. My hubby even felt the need to draw the outline of the tool and label each space in Sharpie. I hang these tools with the business end up.

You might expect a steam mop to be more convenient than an ordinary squeeze mop, with no squeegee to squeeze and no pail of water to deal with. You might also expect the steam to loosen dried food spills effectively, and perhaps even sanitize floors and other surfaces. But not all of these expectations matched the reality when we last tested these products.  

A pegboard organizes tools and brooms, while a metal cart serves as a mobile workbench. Adjustable shelves display an assortment of containers, including a painted wooden box that stores glue; glass jars contain small hardware. And the pan of sand on the floor catches oil drips from the car.

I am a “grab and throw” kind of gardener so it’s not in my nature to take time to put things in their proper place. However, when I had a new shed built at the Garden Home Retreat I was inspired to reform my ways. There’s nothing like a clean, empty space to bring out my inner neatnik. Before I had a chance to junk it up I created a special place for various tools and supplies so I could put things away without slowing down too much.

We specifically recommend the S6002 version of the Genius Pocket Mop, because it comes with a potentially useful add-on: a second mop body and spray bottle that you can attach to the Genius mop head, giving you a mop that can work on the floors that steam mops should never be used upon. If you don’t have another dust mop to use, and you like the Genius mop head style, that can be convenient. The S5003 version of the Genius Pocket Mop is the same steam mop, but in a different color and with three steam modes.

A steam mop works by heating up the water inside the reservoir to temperatures of about 120 degrees Celsius (248 degrees Fahrenheit). Many steam mops have one jet of dry steam (but may have as many as 15 jets), moistening a microfibre pad placed underneath. The steam helps soak the pad and dirt is drawn off ground. Unlike regular mops, steam mops do not leave a residue on the floor and often clean through the dirt. The heat of the steam can kill about 99 percent of the bacteria and dust mites. Steam mops can disinfect floors, restore shine, kill dust mites, and remove some stains.

At age six, he was brought back to race in the United States where the II suffix was added to his name to distinguish him from an American racehorse (a mare foaled in 1905) already named Whisk Broom.[4] Under trainer James G. Rowe, Sr. Whisk Broom II became the first of only four horses to win the three races that compose the New York Handicap Triple Crown Series. In his American campaign he was ridden by Joe Notter.[5]

Steam mops also offer the benefit of using microfiber pads, which are able to capture more dirt and dust than a conventional mop, even before you use the steam function. A study completed by the University of California Davis Medical Center found that traditional wet mops only reduced 30% of the bacteria present before cleaning, while microfiber mops reduced 99% of the bacteria.

Our attached garage is strictly to park the car, and as such, drywall is fine, maybe with a scrubbable paint. On the other hand, my workshop in the barn needs a better solution. One of my favorites is metal wainscoting part way up. Metal roofing or liner metal is fast and easy, and requires no further finishing. I’m also going to use it on the ceiling. I’ll probably put the wainscoting over OSB as a support. Some use good old pegboard for the upper part, although slatwall seems to be replacing it.

As you place each garage wall framing structure into position, you want to first make sure it is in a straight-line before you secure your bracing. You do this with a string line run along the top plate out from the edge of the plate about 1/2. Simply nail a 1 x 1 x 4 piece of pine to each end stud and run the string to each end. Then move the wall in and out with the interior braces until the wall matches the string line from one end to the other. Once you have it near perfect, nail the braces to the stakes in the earth. You can do this same procedure at the bottom plate with the string and a sledge-hammer to tap the wall in and out before tightening your nuts on the anchor-bolts.
