Shed Construction Complete

At 6:45 am this morning before it was even light the shed crew showed up to assemble the components of the 8' x 10' storage shed.  These two young men worked as a well oiled machine completing the building and off to their next job by 8:15 am.

I ended up needing two additional tons of limestone to complete the base providing a level surface for the construction.  This brings the grand total of stone to 8,180 pounds or just over 4 tons.  Every last shovel full transported by hand the 80 feet from the driveway back to the construction site.

The last task which only requires a couple sunny days will be a bit of caulking and painting of the exterior surfaces. 


  1. Man Cave! You did run plumbing and electrical out there didn't you? :]

  2. Very nice, I'll bet the guys weren't used to seeing a base like yours. Congrats on the new call sign that should pound real nice. Tom, AB9NZ

  3. Well done! I hope your neighbor doesn't feel too bad now that you've clearly bested him in the shed category.

  4. Thanks guys for the kind words. If I was a cheesy reality based TV producer or worked over at HGTV I think you all just gave me the idea for a new hit show -"Shed Wars"

    In the next episode: shed mounted solar panels and hot tubs!
