Special Delivery

If you’re keeping up, you already know that we’ve ordered a shed.  Ken has been preparing the site for a couple of weeks. After the crushed stone was delivered he was concerned that the constant pressure of the stone pushing out on the wood would eventually cause it to bow out. Especially come winter should it rain and then freeze.

Ever the fixer, Ken devised a plan to address this. He purchased 8 foot long ground stakes. Pre drilled 2 holes equally spaced apart on each side.

Then used a 5lb hammer to hammer in the stakes.

Just in time for the shed delivery! I unfortunately missed it as I had to go to work, but Ken got some great shots of them lowering it off the truck.

The shed is huge 16’x20′ and looks like a mini version of our house. Once all of the items being stored in the garage are organized and moved out here, we will be able to both park in the garage for the first time since moving into this house over a year ago. Just in time for the ugly New England winter (I am soooo not ready for winter).

What do you think? Is your shed a life and space saver?
