I want to do a good job but I don’t want to take everything out and fill a room full of stuff with more stuff. Owner might freak out too. The owner has been in the home for 49 years so its been a loooong time since somebody has gone up there I suspect.
do you guys havea rule of thumb to follow about about how much stuff to move to gain access?
