Nothing else needs to be painted right now, just the walls that are in the rooms that will get the new ceilings. I do need to give both dogs a bath, though. Tonight I'll see how far I can get removing this wallpaper. It's a struggle with every square inch, but I'm working on the most difficult surfaces first.
A friend of mine was doing some welding projects and had a base he built to support a file cabinet, though it's regular width, not legal. I find it very handy that it moves that way. They make inserts for file cabinets for using hanging files - could you insert a hanging support in such a way that you could hang legal files length-wise in a standard cabinet? I rarely shop at Walmart, but they have a 2-drawer legal cabinet for $39. Free pickup only.
Legal size inserts - the sides that the files hang on are usually notched ever half inch or so, meant to be snapped off with a heavy pliers and a vise grip or something comparable. You could put it in the cabinet sideways and break off the extra-long parts. It wouldn't be a drawer full, but it would be a standard cabinet holding your legal files.
The contractor texted, he'll be here tomorrow, 9am. I will be ready.
