Harry Potting Shed progress...
|Anxiety. Will it come together correctly? Math's never been my |
strong suit, and there is a lot of math here. I spent more time
staring at it than I did assembling.
I was able to get the whole thing framed, and then half of it walled up. This weekend I'll finish the walling and start the roof. Its looking much larger than I had thought it would. It's 8'x12'. God only knows how tall it will be.
I've built this 1,000 times in my head, so I didn't have an actual drawn-out plan to refer to – which amazes and infuriates my wife. Of course that also leads to the aforementioned extra trips to Home Depot when I run out of lumber. Or nails.
|The windows come from the attic of the house. The door is |
from an original door that was in the house that has been
in the garage for the last 14 years.
This is not a she-shed, nor is it a party shed, or an office, or man cave. It's a definite garden shed.
|In context to the rest of the garden. It's incorporated in the checkerboard garden, next to the potager.|
|The Harry Potter Garden will go back in the front bed you see at the bottom here. Maybe I should call it the "Harry Potting Shed."|
|Here's the plan. As with any plan, changes are occurring as I proceed.|
|Not the shed, but the front garden is looking uber-lush right now. Next it'll be shaggy, then unkempt, then out of control – they are its seasons.|
