My New Shed
Building and organizing my shed was a time-consuming project but well worth the time and effort. It's also a great selling feature when it's time to sell your home. In my case, I needed a shed to put all my tools and outdoor items. I bought this pre-fab shed and had my contractor New Island Remodeling put it together. They did a great job as usual.
1. Building Phase - Reading those instructions was time-consuming. Looking good.
3. Painting - Construction is done; now, the painting begins—a lot of work on my part but worth it. I painted the inside and the outside. Why do you ask? Because it brightened up the interior and protected the outdoor against the weather elements.
3. Organizing - This shed came with two shelves. Very handy, it allowed me to store my tables and outdoor area rug. I added hooks to hang items that were large or bulky. I labeled all my items—this way, when my kids use the items, they know where to put it back. No excuses!!
I bought these white storage cubes from Home Depot. They are great because they are plastic. I bought three sets. They come in in a two-pack.
I bought these fabric storage bins from Target. They are called Threshold Fabric Cube. They come in different colors and fit perfectly in those white cubes.
I used PVC tubing and cut them on an angle then nailed them to the wood. This allowed me to store my large items. Very organized.
Lastly, I use these hooks to hang my ladders, hose, and eventually, my snow shovels.
It's not done until I add some piazza to it. Couldn't help myself!!
Now it's all done. It gives me a lot of storage. I'm very proud of what I've accomplished on my own. I'm not done yet; I will be adding cement sometime soon. This way, there won't be such a big step getting in or out of the shed. It will also prevent it from getting muddy.
