No, we didn’t build a box, or a table but we did finally get to our shed to organize it.
Sunday afternoon we hauled out all of the “oh just put it in the shed” stuff (which was stuffed in there so tightly you couldn’t get all the way in the door and you had to pry the stuff out).
After the contents were out of the shed we were able to celebrate our creation once again. We had built the shed a year ago so that we could put the contents of the basement into it while we put a cement floor down. And then my daughter moved in “temporarily” and the shed got filled with other things and it just kept getting more congested. With the “run in, find a spot, and run out” interaction with the shed over the past year the beauty of this little shed had become hidden. And so, Sunday, we were able to see it in all its glory, once again.
With the shed almost empty, we were able to put up shelves and hooks to hold most of the items off the floor, leaving room for the chipper, rototiller and two bicycles AND room to walk around! It’s amazing what you can do with some old chipboard and 2×4’s. The only difficult part was switching power tools on the one power cord. “Next time” we build outside I’m going to have one of those new octopus style “power bars”—and have all of the tools plugged in at the same time.
After re-loading the shed with the same stuff that we took out we were left with a LOT of empty space still.
Now, I wonder how long it will take before the “run and toss” starts taking over again.
