Flip This Shed

While we were at the hospital getting to know Will, Deanna's dad spent a couple of days fixing up a dilapidated shed we had in our backyard. I thought this thing was fit to be demolished, but he did an amazing job fixing it up. It's hard to believe that any of the new structure is original- the shed looks awesome! It's a fine example of his thrift.

After Remodeling:

I thought for sure we'd be better off knocking the old shed over and buying one of these: Walpole Woodworkers Sheds

I think the final result compares quite favorably with the very expensive pre-fab solutions.

Our thanks to Deanna's dad for this project, and for his tireless interest in improving our home in cost effective ways. His enthusiasm for caring for our house is amazing- we're fortunate to have him in our lives. Thanks to Sue as well for being supportive of his spending time visiting us- and for planting fresh flowers in the flower box. What a nice finishing touch. Our house doesn't even have flower boxes!
