Shed Building 101 Part 1!

First you go to the home improvement store to buy lumbar and paint with these adorable things!

Second, you start painting the floor and then you knock down the fence where the new shed will be and start building the base or the floor of the shed! Also, you enlist help from every friend or family member you can bribe!!!! Also, with the new found hedge trimmers that work, you start trimming ALL the hedges that were killed in early spring ice storm!!!

Third, since the home improvement store is not going to deliver your order when you want it, you go and pick up PART of the order so you can start building walls!

Fourth, when the home improvement store finally does arrive with the rest of your order, ALL work comes to a complete halt!!! The flatbed truck with the forklift is way too cool!!!!!!!!!

Fifth, The slave labor from Oklahoma takes the required break! Then you get the rest of the walls built and start getting them attached to the floor of the unit!

Sixth, a loving brother/sister moment! Then comes headers and preparations for the roof beams!

Stay tuned, part 2 coming!!! I know you are on the edge of your seat with anticipation!

How lucky you are Carrie having All that slave labour! And what a great job they are doing.
Like Steph said...Great photos.

My new header photo that you admired features the octahedron fluorite pendant which was a gift from a wonderful blogging friend Healingstones. Aren't I just one of the luckiest people alive to receive such a beautiful gift!
