Potting Shed


After adding a storage 'barn' that was really needed after we moved I was very excited. Finally! Some room for my gardening supplies! Nope. Too much 'stuff' to accommodate my garden stuff too! So my sweet husband added a potting shed to the back of our smaller building. (No, there wasn't room in that one either) I think he felt guilty at that point. Anyway here are some progress pics of our project.

My designated space. Approx 10x12

Very steep slope.

Poles in concrete. Lots of figuring going on. Trust me, unless we get a tornado, this thing ain't movin'.

Rafters put in

Ceiling boards up. Scaffold built for that. Utube would have loved this part. There was a lot of 'ok, on the count of 3, HEAVE, going on'.

Would you believe that's 5 tons of gravel! Had to level the area.

Break time. "Sorely" needed. I did mention we're old, right?

He wasn't alone. Someone had to shoot the pics.

LOTS of gravel. Drains are next. Just too steep to not add them. Once my work bench is in I'll do a final pic.
