Garden shed reborn
I'm nearing the end of one project I was determined to get done this summer - cleaning out and fixing up the small barn/garden shed. I used to have a pet sheep many years ago, and had built a stall in this shed for him for occasional shelter. The other half was for garden tools, bags of mulch/soil/what have you and piles of misc. "stuff".
I knocked down the stall walls myself, finally resorting to a sledge hammer in the end for one piece! Took me many days, but I did it plus pitching out all the old straw from the stall area. Thankfully there was not much manure left.
Then, I bought seven panes of new glass and filled all the empty frames and one broken glass in the two window sashes.
So far, I just have them pointed in, have to start the glazing tomorrow if it's nice so it can dry well. The windows are very old, wood is dry and weathered. Some places there wasn't even any wood to push the glazing points into! Still, there's something charming about them. (My Dad who's passed on would strongly disagree!) Next I have to have a new door built for the one end. I bought the lumber,now trying to find someone to do the work. I may just get frustrated and get my little jig saw and try it myself!
Anyway, you know where I'm going with this. Can't you just see a little table and a wicker chair sitting in front of those windows? Wouldn't it be fun to sit there even this winter and watch the snow come down? I'm know, I'm crazy.
I'll try to resist hanging some curtains! :)
Need the new door here.
This side already has a wide door that is open in this pic.
