Look in disgust at the rusty old shed that’s jammed under the eave of the garage.
Decide it’s not that disgusting. Choose a new place for it that makes more sense.
Level out the ground where its new home will be, using some stakes (or dowels) and some string (or yarn)…
…and a line level.
Do some digging.
When it’s fairly level, spray it down and stomp on it.
Put down sand as a base for the free pavers.
Lay the pavers.
“Grout” with sand, rinsing and packing a few times.
Yank shed out from under the eave of the garage, drag it over and put it up on blocks, and spray the dirt and spider webs out with a high pressure hose. Get some spiders on you (and possibly in your pants… still not sure what that was. Eek.). Scour it with steel wool and wipe it clean with a rag, then spray again. Rip off old flaking shingles on the roof.
Admire the clean shed.
Stay tuned for the rest of the steps, coming soon in part 2! I mean it this time, guys. This is one project I WILL finish. Still to do:
- Prime and paint
- Fix hinges (that ugly door on the right is hanging on by a thread when it’s open)
- Move into place
- Anchor to the ground
Oh and to give you an idea of where it was and where it’s going, here’s a little diagram.
