April 2007: A Garage Project - One year later

I ran into a client of mine a year after I had organized her garage and she invited me to come and visit. She proudly told me that it was still neat and organized. I asked her if I could interview her and her husband and take photographs. I had the pleasure of seeing our system still in place! I say our system because my client contributed her ideas and was very much involved in the whole process. She wanted to surprise her husband by organizing the garage. When it was completed, I was relieved to know that he was thrilled with the results.

Here is the actual interview that I conducted one year later:
