A retired fireman and contractor, Duncan wanted his garage to fit the way his life looks today—and accommodate his two family cars for the first time in decades.

Situation: Even though Duncan was a seasoned contractor, when dealing with his own home, he didn't know where to start.

Solution: We began by taking everything out, including 40 years of tools, nuts and bolts, and other odds and ends from his career as a contractor. Duncan felt strongly that everything should live a second life, a philosophy we at Organizeology fervently agree with. He sold and gave away his valuable items. We helped him part with the rest, making sure it was recycled and disposed of responsibly through our certified-green recycling partner. Within two days, we'd edited and organized all of the items and Duncan removed the old cabinetry. After the garage was painted, the floors coated in epoxy, the lighting updated and Organizeology custom cabinetry was installed, we organized the items in a way that'll let Duncan easily keep things in place for years to come.

Design details: custom melamine cabinetry, butcher block counters, maple slatwall, epoxy floors, new paint, updated electrical, pull-out drawers, brushed chrome hardware.

Project scope: Designed the garage and managed the remodel. Organized our client back into his garage.
