The storage and potting sheds I built.

We needed a storage shed to hold the lawn mowers and four wheeler and such. They were too small and expensive to buy already made. So I said if I could buy a big saw I could make one. And so I did.
I kept looking outside all winter, when we would have a storm, just to make sure it hadn't blown over.

years later it is still here. (It isn't crocked the picture is).

Now to build a garden shed.
Its progressing.
I wonder who left the hammer up there
The inside, The windows, if you look closely, are hinged at the bottom so they open inward and the chain keeps them from opening too far.
Almost done. Now to clean up the mess I made. I made a sign that said Potting Shed. I kept the sign for about two years and finally thought, I seriously need to build a Potting Shed to hang this on. And so here it is. I need to paint a sign that says Garage maybe.


  1. My goodness Kat, do you have help or are you Super Woman?? Would you like to come and live with me for about a month, I'm a great cook and I'd feed you real good.8-)

  8. Thank you for sharing your garden shed. I dream of having one soon. I hope. Well I have the windows so far. Seeing yours keeps my hopes renewed. I like your idea for the windows. I was not sure how to put them in because I do want to open them for fresh air. Looks like you have lots of space to play. Wonderful job. Blessings!
