The West Side 

First, the completed east side of the shed.

The east side.


And by completed, I mean the basics are finished. (We are working against Mother Nature here people, aesthetics are not a top priority).  Continue reading “The West Side “

The Owl Whisperer

Tyler can speak to owls. But more on that in a minute.

The shed has been receiving a major facelift.

Working on the ever-important facia (I think?).

With winter fast approaching, although we’ve had quite the weather reprise the last couple of weeks, getting the shed waterproof is of high importance.
