Finally, after weeks of blood, sweat and tears...no that's not right, there were no tears, just a little blood and lots and lots of sweat...my garden shed is finished!!
Isn't it just the cutest thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My thanks to my husband and his friend for building it for me! I did help, but didn't do near as much as they did. I did get to saw some of the boards, do a little nailing, helped roof it, and painted it. My usually job was the gopher, go for this and go for that!!
Here's some shots to show the progress.
concrete blocks placed and leveled
This was the first day of construction. Quickly the walls and rafters go up!
We put the roof on early to protect the wood. I helped with the tar paper, but Jerry did the actual roofing. I just toted the shingles up the ladder a million times!!
the siding is going on
time to add the porch rails
All done and ready to paint. But I had to spackle and caulk first. It looks like it has the chicken pox and is covered in calamine lotion!
time to paint
Now, I just need to drag all my pots, garden tools and other paraphernalia up to the shed to see how I want to organize them. It will be so nice to have this shed close to the house where I can get my things quickly!!
