|The leaves are quickly morphing from green to red and yellow.|
The next project on my handlers list was to level off a site in the north west corner of our yard in preparation for an 8' X 10' garden shed.
|Bright and sunny day.|
|Circular saw to make some pegs.|
|Required tools for the job.|
|Making sure every corner is level - front to back - back to front - corner to corner - etc.|
While I was busy digging, leveling, digging some more, leveling some more and hauling in some heavy concrete blocks, I did not bother with photographs. Suffice it to say that the task did take all of five hours. It was bull work....but the workout was well worth the effort. I burned many calories and sweated buckets too.
|Big, heavy, concrete blocks for the back of the shed.|
|The middle blocks had to be dug in more than the back blocks. The front blocks are dug even deeper and jot out ever so slightly above grade.|
|Once the shed is in place and the exterior finished with siding to match our home, the blocks won't be seen. The building will be completely skirted and finished.|
|Sure had to did deep and hard in places to get the job done. Good exercise though.|
|Once the shed is in place, new crushed rock will fill the front, sides and back.|
You read right. The garden shed is being moved from another home to ours. Madeleine, a good friend of ours, does not want the garden shed in her yard. She already has a lovely 10 X 20 garden shed so this second one will be leaving her yard for ours in the coming days.
|The finished garden shed will sit behind this foliage near the fence and cedars in the corner.|
Once it arrives here, the shed will be re-shingled to match our existing house roof, soffits will be installed, a new window will be built into the east facing wall, new matching vinyl siding will cover the existing plywood walls, and new gutters and drains will be installed too.
