The Shed Saga

Jack is happy to report that he has finished at least one project so far this summer (actually it’s autumn now in Fairbanks).

He fixed the roof on the shed and shingled it.  (I’m telling you, Jack can do anything!)

Here is a photo of him in the middle of the project:

This shed has a bit of a story.

When we first moved into our house, we had to move it since we wanted to build a garage and it was in the way.  Jack tackled the job himself.

This is him putting the shed on the trailer, getting it ready to be moved:

We realize this is probably the equivalent of drinking while using power tools.  Kids, take note, do NOT drink alcohol while moving a shed!  🙂

The next day, with the shed on the trailer, Jack just barely gives it a little gas to see how sturdy it is.  It was just fine.

This is where it ended up.

(If you want to see a few seconds of this heavy haul project in progress, click here.)

The 4-wheeler is holding it in place.

He had to prop it up on blocks until he could give it a more stable foundation…!!!

Here is the “more stable” foundation when the project was mostly done.

This is not where the shed finally ended up, though he didn’t do the moving this time.  It’s present and permanent spot you can see on the first photo.  We will finish siding it at the same time we side the garage that has yet to be built.

Hope everyone is doing well!  Thanks for reading.  🙂

    I’m curious. What do you grow in your greenhouse? When do you start your plants?

    • judyinalaska says:

      I usually have a lot of success with tomatoes, cucumbers, and strawberries in the greenhouse. And various flowers. I plant seeds in those handy little peat pellets pretty early in the spring and keep them under lights. Early April for tomatoes. I seed cucumbers directly mid-May and sometimes have to use a space heater for a few days. I buy bare-root strawberries at a commercial greenhouse. Someday we hope to have a large permanent greenhouse…our property is a work in progress for sure! But we love it. 🙂

        Did you read the article about potatoes in bags? That is my next adventure.
        I hope you get your large permanent greenhouse.
