Finally: The New Shed

Standard

Yes, we finally have the new shed in our back yard.

What took so long, you say?

The answer is this: purchasing the shed kit and all building materials, the building permit application, drawing a site plan, borrowing a 150 ft. tape measure, reviews by the zoning department, borrowing some of the concrete forms and finishing tools, delivery of the stone, forming the concrete pad, pricing concrete delivery with different companies, pricing concrete finishing, delivery of concrete, lining up another person to help with the finishing, and then waiting a week for the concrete to cure. All while working mid-nights. It took all summer.

The concrete had to be wheelbarrow-ed from the street because it was in a fenced portion of our yard:

This is the concrete truck in front of the house. At 7:45 am. Luckily we have nice neighbors.

Here is the pad finished:

While we had the mess, DH added on to our patio and sidewalk. Here is Nash, who was warned to stay off the wet concrete:

It sure came in handy to store all of our garden and patio items.

We are now beginning our inside remodeling. Kitchen, 2 baths and mud room. IKEA has just delivered most of my kitchen.

Stay tuned!
