Hi you guys! I wanted to show you what I’ve been doing over the summer. How many of you have always wanted a little garden shed of your very own, just for your gardening stuff? (and not for your hubbies golf clubs, car parts, or whatever it is your hubby is into!) I have ALWAYS wanted one, and this summer was my summer to get it! Yay!! (we’re trying to make room in our two car garage for at least one car, so getting all my gardening stuff out was a good incentive for talking my hubby into getting the shed!) HA!
We went to Lowes and looked at all the buildings they had on their lot…we looked at the metal ones, the plastic ones, and the wooden ones that someone comes to your house to build. I decided, since it was JUST for my gardening stuff, that I wanted a wooden one, but just the 8 x 8 size. We bought it, and had it scheduled to be built…..a THREE week wait!~ I counted down the days! Finally, the day came, and here’s a picture progression of how it went…..
The poor guy that came to build our shed probably wasn’t happy with me as we only have a 36” gate and he had to carry everything to the back yard by hand!
Here he is starting….
Did I mention our yard is NOT level? He had to use blocks to level it up. I kept staring at this because it looks SO crooked because of the fence going downhill…but it was level.
Poor guy probably thought I was a nutcase because I stayed outside all day long and watched him and took pictures. LOL
Here’s my new floor! (I may or may not have gotten up there and done a little jig while he was around front getting more supplies!) :0)
This was a kit and everything came pre-cut so the process went pretty quickly! Yay for walls!
It went quickly until this stage right here….see that dark cloud right at the top of the picture? Yeah, we had a 15-20 minute downpour, complete with thunder and lightening. I tried to get the guy to come in the house, but he insisted on sitting in his truck. Under a tree. Not smart. :-0
I quit taking pictures of the build after the storm….it was wet and wasn’t as fun taking pictures in my flip flops. hee hee hee
Here’s the building all finished up! You can see the weather turned, and the day ended up being beautiful!
Next post I’ll show you the twist in my shed….not something you’d expect to see, but really cute!
