So when we bought this house 14 years ago, the idea was that the large shed out back (I call it the barn) would be a place for projects to occur. It’s situated on the back end of our property and is quite large. The enclosed area is about 12’x20’ with a tin roof and two overhangs on either side that are about 8’x20’, so lots of dry storage for sure.
Well, as we are all probably way too aware of, time creeps up on you, the kids come along, jobs change, and all of sudden time has passed and nothing you wanted to do with the barn has been accomplished. So this year I have decided to go for it, and make something usable out there. We decided a window AC unit was one of the first steps needed to make it habitable out there, and so last week I picked one up from Lowes.
Today, the whole family went out there to get started on the project… oh god, even in the dead of winter there are spiders out there.. aaagh.
View 1 – Cub opened the door, this is the approach
View 2 – looking in at the horror, look somehow an AC unit was jammed in there.
View 3 – a deeper look
We spent about 2 hours out there this afternoon got it to the point where you can walk into the building. Swept it out and figured out new lightbulbs in the fixtures are a must. Tomorrow it’s off to Home Depot for a Shop Vac and Fluorescent bulbs. Then a good vaccuming and we can lay down a roll of outdoor carpet I acquired.
Next weekend, AC unit installation.
