Wednesday Working – Shed Progress

My brother is back home and doing much better for the last month so I’ve been able to get more done on the shed. Heather has also been doing a lot of work on it too so we been able to get the floor down. Now we’re ready to start putting the counters, shelves and cabinets so she can start using it. Here’s a few pictures of where we are:

The lights are in, electrical all done, new vinyl floor with a simple baseboard and a random stack of drawers.

The other side of the shed.

Every shed needs a sun on the side. The things around the edge of the photo belong in the shed, but were taken out while Heather worked on the floor.

And you need a gecko …

We still have a lot of work to get this ready for winter. Heather will be using this as a potting shed, plant storage, and in the spring a green house to start her seedlings. We have a short growing season here in the high desert – May to about September, so plants have to be started in a green house.

There’s about a month left of nice weather left here before it starts freezing overnight and the days get shorter so I’ve got a lot of things to get fixed up before the first snow fall.

If you need me, I’ll be in the shed.

  1. Looking good. Funny about every shed needing a sun and a gecko. Why does that seem to be true? Is it like a law or something?

    Out of curiosity, does Heather have any hobbies where using the shed would make things easier?

    I like the idea of using the shed, which is quite nice, as a winter greenhouse. You’ve got me thinking I may need one like this. Hmmm. So glad your brother is doing better. That’s very good news, Andrew.

    • It’s amazing how cold it can get here in the winter. Say desert and you think heat, but no, it freezes a lot. I think this is going to work great for Heather’s garden stuff.


  5. It looks great, Andrew, and I love that sun and gecko, too!

    I notice the outlets are installed high on the walls instead of the standard location just above the baseboards. Assume that’s a better height for your tabletop equipment?

  10. Oh, wow! It looks wonderful! I love the sun and the gecko, too – I might need to get some for our place. We don’t have a shed, but there’s a spot on our front porch that needs some sun… or a reptile. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The shed looks as if it would be totally habitable if need ever arose. You’ve made a superb job of it!

    Such beautiful work. Looks more like something I’d live in, in my son’s backyard.

  15. Well, I didn’t know the sun and gecko rules before. Sure like those windows, as well as the flooring.
