"Extremely professional group to partner with on a home sale / purchase. Office manager Shelly has things down to a streamlined process and works well ahead of any deadlines to avoid any last minute challenges. They sold the property I had listed in less than 24 hours and had a conventional deal closed within 30 days with no hiccups or challenges. I wish all realtors followed their process, they have it down to a science. For the record, I have no affiliation with the Patterson Group, just a satisfied client."

The 10 Best Things You Can Do for Your Garage

By Glenda Taylor | May 2022

Garages are much more than just a designated parking place for your car. Homeowners these days take advantage of the space as a utility room and workshop as well as a storage solution for seasonal items, tools, lawn equipment, and gardening gear. In order to fill these many roles, a garage needs to be clean, well-organized, and up to date. Here are the 10 best things you can do for your garage to make that vital space as functional as possible.

Look Upward for Additional Storage

No matter the size of your garage, storage space always seems to be in short supply. Most homeowners don’t take advantage of the vast area overhead—but they should! By installing a ceiling storage system, you can transform wasted space into a clever stow-away spot for off-season decor and seldom-used items.



Install Dedicated Circuits

If you use your garage as a workshop, chances are it’s not adequately wired. Welders, air compressors, and other shop tools often require dedicated circuits to keep regular multiple-outlet circuits from overloading. Talk to a licensed electrician about updating your garage wiring with a 30-amp service, additional standard outlets, and dedicated outlets for operating heavy shop tools.

Set Up a Garage Exhaust Fan

If you ever sand, weld, solder, varnish, or work with chemicals in your garage, then it's a good idea to install an exhaust fan to get rid of dust and fumes. These fans are typically placed in an exterior wall. When switched on, the fan's powerful suction quickly removes toxic fumes and airborne dust, keeping the air clean and safe for handy homeowners who enjoy woodworking or tinkering with automobile engines.

Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Total Time: 1 hour | Servings: 8

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup chopped roasted bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and quartered
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 (8oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine feta, roasted red peppers, spinach, olives, basil, parsley and garlic in a medium bowl.

Using a small knife, cut a horizontal slit through the thickest portion of each chicken breast to form a pocket. Stuff each breast pocket with about 1/3 cup of the feta mixture; secure the pockets using wooden picks. Sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the stuffed breasts, top-sides down, in the pan; cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip the chicken; transfer the pan to the oven. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the chicken registers 165 degrees F, 20 to 25 minutes. Drizzle the chicken evenly with lemon juice. Remove the wooden picks from the chicken before serving.
