The Shed

Last June, I wrote about the work the hubby was doing on the backyard shed. During our marriage, we have often spent his time off working on projects, and this was no different. Except maybe in scope. We both thought a week, or maybe two, would complete the project. Boy, were we wrong!

Anyway. The daughter-in-law graciously allowed her men to come for a visit December 26-28 since she was stuck working. And since the weather was nice, the son helped his dad on the shed. Now, since I last wrote about it, the shed has a concrete floor and a concrete patio. The hubby and the son worked on putting a roof up over the patio, discovering along the way that at least the front of the shed will have to be re-roofed. I wish I had taken before pictures, but I didn’t. Here are some of the afters.

This is the son under the roof he and his dad built. This is the result of a little over a day of work. The roof is tar papered. They are waiting for spring for the shingles.


Here’s the shed from a distance. You can’t see the tie foundation because it’s covered with pieces of siding, but in the spring new siding will go up, and painting will be involved.  The ruts in the yard are fixable. They are from the cement truck.


I am so grateful that the son was able to come and help his dad out.  That they work well together.  That the weather at this time of year was good enough for them to work.  And of course, that we have a shed with which the hubby is more happy.

Who knew such a “little” project could bring forth so much good?
