    Was anything ever sold?  Looks like whoever collected the stuff focused on whatever was left from eviction piles after they were picked over by bums.

    @nolaegghead @caliking the guy had been in there for 25 years. He would buy 18 wheeler loads sight unseen. It's all just a bunch of crap pretty much. I'm giving my friends a chance to come pick this Saturday. Then it's going to goodwill. Salvation Army.  thrift stores. And then the landfill. It's a super cool old building. I'm pumped.

    What are you going to use this building for?

    @Eoin the front part a living space. The back 6000 square foot into a hobby maker/studio place. It's in the old downtown area of Greenville TX. Which is just gotten a new resurgence.

    Looks great @texaswig, got any pictures of the outside. That period of building is nice, good to have a ton of space as well.

    Yeah, edit button is gone already .... I'm going with; I was refering to all the sweat equity he will have after clearing it out.

    He should call that chubby/skinny guy combo from the History channel. I think their show is "American Pickers" or something.

    Looks like a dream come true. I'm guessing there is a car lift or two in there somewhere.

    Let us see the work in progress. Congrats!
