You know I read this and I see that I am not the only person who dose this. Back when I was young and lived in a very big town I had tried dating girls. I did good if they did not come to my house I say. It was clean and very nice but the fact is I had tractor stuff all over the place. for years I had put like a dash to the JD 70 Diesel tractor in the living room all painted up look great. I even had converted a hay cart over to be a full sized bed in my room. I had a truck step side bed in my guest room made in to a full size bed. Girls hated it but man I liked it. When I sold my house and moved I had a yard sale man I sold every thing I made and guess what I had made a lot of money for it. I did not know I was before my it on this stuff. Yes that is right I am old now and still single ladies missed out on a good person like me.

My projects get no further than the utility room by the back door. My office planned when the house was built but I constantly have to defend from being a catchall of things from other rooms. As long as she leaves the shop alone its okay.

I must admit my wife puts up with a lot. Parts new and old oils, the chainsaw and more loose bolts from my pockets and such. Never really complains though I know she would like for me to not bring these things in and not have them leave for day/weeks at a time. Though I have never tried some of the things you guys write about like carb cleaning in her rot pot or using the oven to heat pats. I did use moms oven to heat a couple of bearings to put on once though.
All in all she is a good egg about things like that. She even lets me help with canning. I do get my share of pies too.

Mine has a nose like a bloodhound and allergies. I am lucky if I make it in the house if I smell like gas or oil or many other things. My shop is a couple miles away so parts do not migrate.

I have an opinion, but don?t we all. Just think of it as if she came into your work area and started mixing cake or bread and got flour and sugar all over your ready to assemble transmission or engine parts. I don?t think you would be very happy to have to clean it all up again before assembly. You need to move a part office in the garage or barn Where almost all the paper work gets done till it is filed for good. One must look at it from the women?s point of veins sometimes.

My Mom had this "BOX". She always told us that if we left anything out, it would go in her "BOX" and we would NEVER see it again. We never saw anything we left out, clothes, toys,shoes,etc. Our whole life we lived in fear of leaving something out and never seeing it again.

My shop is several hundred yards from the house, so I normally don't have a problem with intermix.

On the other hand, my father was only marginally housebroken, and I recall him doing some serious maintenance on a chain saw in the kitchen one winter evening, including starting it up.

My mother, bless her heart, just shrugged it off. I guess she got conditioned to it after a while.

I get the same thing and I have a walk-out basement, so nothing ever gets to the kitchen. But I still hear about the "stink" (gas, diesel, other solvents) even in the basement. I started using Purple Power to degrease winter projects but I have to scrub out the laundry tub after the hot rinse. It's really no different than the toilet seat issue.

Ellis, I think it's right smart of you (or her) to choose a black countertop that will not show the grease.

I have, in the past, found tractor parts in my bedroom top dresser drawer, lying right on top of my tighty whiteys. I did not put them there.

If I was fixing her vacuum or some other appliance, I could do it on the kitchen table and she would not even raise an eyebrow. A tractor or car part and holy smokes would that raise her hackles:).

My wife and I are still living in two houses together. Some nights her house, some nights mine. When I get this addition finished she will finally move in here
It does allow me a little leeway about what I can have in my house here.
We have an unfinished bedroom on the back end of the house. I use it for storage and a semi heated work shop.
Two weekends ago I wanted to put the tires back on my freshly painted rims but they were outside in the cold and snow. So I brought the tires in to the kitchen to warm them up a bit and well, it's a good thing she didn't decide to stop by then.

My second wife had a habit of taking anything I left in the kitchen and putting it in a drawer she'd reserved.
I looked in there the other day. it appears wife #3 has picked up that habit as well.
