The plan to move into David’s house, which is half the size of mine, prompted finishing the basement and building a shed to help contain all our stuff. (I’m also downsizing my belongings… anyone want some stuff?) After considering a kit shed, David’s contractor pal Jim said he’d help, and they thought building from scratch would be better. I agreed to fund the project.
Multiple pickup loads later, we had a whole lot of building materials in the back yard and the shop. The allotted space was for a 12×7 shed, which seemed very reasonable. I even saw the platform. But then… it got taller.
All we can do is laugh at this thing. It’s basically as tall as the house. Another contractor friend stopped by and just laughed too when he saw it. As long as the neighbors don’t stop talking to us we should be fine, but I know they’ll be talking about us (or rather about THE TALLEST SHED EVER). David said this morning after seeing it again it was like drunk-dialing a girl you met at a bar and then thinking the next morning, “What was I thinking?”
Please submit ideas for landscaping this monstrosity! I’m thinking archery targets on the side, but perhaps just some corn growing in front would disguise the big brown walls. Mural?
Meanwhile the basement framing is mostly done. If we just had the cash we could get the drywall up!
