Yea, she is constantly putting my work boots in the closet. What is wrong about leaving them by the fireplace for tomorrow morning? Ellis

Fifteen years ago the EX said "congratulation, you won the S ..t wars." Good riddance. Being a pack rat can have it's benefits.

You may have made the mortgage payments or are making the mortgage payments, but it is HER house. Accept it. If she leaves you and there are papers signed, it will still likely end up being HER house. I doubled the square footage of our home about 10 years ago. I have a modest amount of space I can set up for my office, but since it has the computer, it remains mostly HER space. For the past 15 years I have wanted to have a place where I can put my stuff and have an office. I need a fair amount of "flat space" for organizing bills and records for my own personal records, the farm records, and four other organizations I am involved with. I used to laugh about all those guys my dad's age who built "man caves" in their garage, or in their farm shops. I now have a much better understanding and appreciation for those efforts.

LOL!!

I do find parts on the kitchen counter-top or sometimes hanging in our basement waiting for paint in wintertime... but after some "kind advice" early in our marriage - he is pretty good to set them on a piece of newspaper/in plastic bag or throw down a paint cloth when painting. But the parts are always pretty well cleaned up. :)

There are however, some enduring splotches of John Deere green and yellow over-spray on our rustic concrete basement walls (a heinous crime committed during our early years)... for which I have never been fully able to gain a "true appreciation of". Hee-hee!

Baked a manifold that was sprayed with a ceramic coating in the oven once-once. Really stunk up the house.

I put some brake discs on a cookie sheet in the oven one time to try to boil the oil out of them. She wasn't home at the time of course.

Kinda like hauling livestock in an SUV, the cleanup can take longer than the original task and the smell still lingers for weeks.

Old kitchen ranges, old clothes washers and dryers and old dishwashers are available cheap or sometimes free. RV antifreeze can preserve washers though cold winters in unheated spaces. If you have the shop space consider installing the most pirated kitchen appliances in the shop.

I guess if she's not hanging her unmentionables in your shop to dry than she might have a point.

You are correct, those are unreasonable requests.

Moving your parts to an undisclosed location is inexcusable!

Best you can do is try to get her into counseling ASAP!

While she's gone, make the best of your time in the kitchen.

As a compromise, you could set her up a Coleman stove in the living room, and a wash tub for the dishes. But let her know right up front, "NO MORE COMPLAINING"!
