I’ve finally begun to work on the small storage shed in my yard.
It started life as a storage shed at my mom’s camp, where it suffered much abuse from shade and critters.
When mom let her camp go I decided to take the shed for use in my yard.
The guys who demo’d the camper agreed to deliver it to my house for a small fee.
So began the saga of my someday potting shed.
You can read a little about how we moved it last summer here,
or how it got prettied up a bit here.
So…. it’s been sitting pretty much untouched and unused since then, the door was rotted and fell off when we moved it so it’s been without a door for a while.
I DID experiment with some paint colors while deciding what color to paint the house….
You can see in this picture how the bottom of the siding has started to rot.
Mike has often wondered out loud why we have this eyesore taking up space.
Eyesore? I don’t see an eyesore, I see a beautiful potting shed, don’t you? ;)
First off, time to empty out the junk from inside.
Then a window must be chosen from my stash. I love the shape of this one, so it was easy to pick.
I removed the back vent before taking the picture..the window is going on the back of the shed, so when I actually use it for a potting shed I’ll be able to see outside.
My Sawzall is the tool of choice for this job.
In almost no time I have the new window propped up in the opening.
A little bit of framing on the inside and some trim and caulk around the outside and we are good to go.
So much for window #1. Hey, it’s a start, right?
