Depends on how you categorize it. Its full utility inside. My John Deere 48" mower, snowblower, bikes, outdoor games, etc are all inside.

Get some of the LED bulbs with the ballast delete. You'll thank me later. They fucking rock.

Been collecting used appliances for our kitchen remodel/move. Tore down the walls in my dining room as that is where the kitchen is moving.

Getting qoutes for cabinets and floors. Starting to stub out the electrical and plumbing this week.

Also have a 14x10 shed I am building to finally get some room in the garage for car work. Waiting on the inspection of the location for that before I can build it.Name:  image-20190615_191721.jpeg

Finally on vacation and getting a chance to finish the fireplace.

Mantel mounted, electrical and wire path done. Fresh coat of paint on the fireplace cover. Cement board up. Stone is in the garage. Just need to put up the stone and mount the TV.

as long as you have a way to control over spray. In my case it didn't really matter since the walls will be covered anyways.

Just make sure you can be gone for a couple hours and leave all the windows open, spray paint fumes were strong!
