    To clarify Steve, the bin men had a bigger job than usual 7 days after you last saw your daughters stuff?

    On a sideways note, a very good friend of mine has run his own business for many years and had his daughter working for him at one time. One morning she had a blazing row with her ol’ man and stomped off out the door telling him she quit.

    After lunch she came back as if nothing had happened to find her dad had sold her (company) car over lunchtime.

    Never lie to your parents. :)

    Threadjack over.

    We have a 3m x 3m shed.... it has benches around 2 walls, and the shelves under them are filled with stuff as well (mainly my stuff)

    It also has the 5 pushbikes in there, and if it's really wet, the 2 motorbikes as well... That's a fun game trying to get them in.... they do go in in an order, but it's all a bit tight in there once they're in.

    A friend of mine built a large agri shed on a piece of land he owns. 60feet long by 40feet wide. I work on old machinery along with this guy, and a neighbour turned up just when the door was being installed and said, "fine shed lads, just one problem, it's not feckin big enough" 3 years and 8 tractors later, he was right and Paddy is building another shed!

    So far I've managed to keep mine from getting too cluttered

    Yeah Bob, the story of my life......

    Small thread hijack:
    I just bought a piece of land to build a new house and a workshop in the garden. The workshop will be something like 32 feet by 23 feet. Anyone interested in a new workshop building thread?

    When I complain about the bedrooms filled with "stuff" I'm told - "It's the girls', they will want it one day".

    I have to point out that both girls are now in their late 30's, have their own homes and bring stuff to us because they haven't any space !

    Some of the "Stuff" belongs to the Grandkids. Will they, in years to come, want the stuff they had when they were two years old . . . I don't think so.

    Queue - "The Circle Of Life".

    :lol:

    I've got a mate who thinks between him and his brother they have over 100 bits of plant and tractors... they're spread over 4 sites, and I reckon they total about 10 acres of storage...

    Now that’s not hoarding, that’s perfectly acceptable. That’s known as a ‘collection’. :)
