Don’t forget about the garage

By From page C3 | November 23, 2012

The most overlooked and an under-appreciated room under our roofs is the garage. Garages are either too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer. They are dark and cluttered with all manner of junk. Garages have cobwebs on the ceilings, oil and transmission fluid on the floor, sharp instruments and half-filled liquid containers of various substances crowded around large vehicles, boats and other motorized machinery. A garage can also be a temporary home to many critters. While showing this unsightly home appendage, I have been surprised by snarling dogs, scampering mice and once stepped on a rather large slithering reptile.
