--> Benjamin Franklin was a wise man, his inventions many, accomplishments extensive and writings numerous. He is also given credit for several familiar sayings including my favorite, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” I like this one best because it reflects the way I wish our all of our gear was organized. To that end, Scott spent last week building shelves in his office storage room. This is where we are determined to stash our gear in an organized fashion rather than allowing it to gradually settle into chaos.

In order to determine the necessary shelf depth, the first thing we did was to inventory the items to be warehoused in this space. After that, there were only two other considerations. To prevent damage to the plaster walls, we decided the shelves needed a back and sides. This will keep backpacks, lanterns, cameras, etc. from damaging the plaster wall when they are slid into place. We also do not want the shelves so tall that items placed on the top will show above the pony walls that separate the storage rooms from the rest of Scott’s office.

Here is the result of his effort.

Looking into the room from Scott's office.
A closer look in.
Looking straight at the shelves.
The shelves abut the plaster wall near the curved window well.
I think we'll be able to implement Franklin's directive here.
