Barn Raising

Grandpa left a couple of presure treated 4×4 posts at our house a couple of months ago. I kept looking at them thinking it was a waste to have them just sitting on the ground. What could I do with them? The best thing I could think of was to build a shed. So it was off to Home Depot… A few hundred dollars later and a quite a few hours (spread over a few months) later and I almost have a shed to put my gardening stuff in.

So I really didn’t/don’t know how to build a shed. I just started asking questions to people who I thought might know something about it. I learned a lot from talking to them and then started hammering nails into some boards. It is going pretty well. The real problem is that I don’t have any time to work on it during the day, and it gets dark by 5:00 now. So Saturday is the only real time I have to work on it. Well, I will persevere and hopefully have it done before Christmas!
