From here, go over to the to the opposite side and look inside the suitcase to find the Note To Wife. Approach Ellie for an optional conversation, then look up at the ladder and boost Ellie up so she can drop it down for you. Follow Ellie up onto the roof for a cutscene, then go downstairs and search the Mens Bathroom for the Precipitate Comic.
Quickly search the main room for Parts x10, Sugar x1 and some Alcohol x1 then go outside. Here you find some more Alcohol, Binding and Blades, then enter the large tent to find Blades, Shorty Ammo x4 and the Tool Level 5 Upgrade. If you collected all five tools, then you’ll be given the Sharpest Tool in The Shed Trophy!
