Default The Sh**house...

So, I finally broke down and bought a shed. Here'* some pics of before, during, and after the install yesterday.

As we were cleaning out the area and moving bromeliads to make way for shed.

I just wanted to bore you all with pictures of my shed being installed yesterday. This is our big home improvement for the year and I'm pretty excited to get it in so that I can move all the stuff out of the garage. I was never a huge fan of sheds, but storage is so limited in Florida homes that I've broken down and done it.

It is 10' x 12' and pre-wired for electric in case I ever can run a wire through all the tree roots to get to it, but that is not a priority and might not need to be done at all.

Next items on the agenda are a ramp to the door, skirting around the base, heavy duty shelves built on one side and garden tool racks on the other.

I decided not to build my own, despite the fact that it would have been more solid and better built. The reasons for that are twofold. One was the extremely difficult and involved permitting process in Deltona which involved a requirement for a state approved engineering approval stamp on any plans. The other was the mere fact that materials alone were going to run me more than the complete installed cost of this shed, not counting the cost of the concrete slab materials.

So there you have it.

Where do you think a lot of that crap is going, lol!

One reason I wanted this done now instead of later is to make sure that there is at least one available garage bay for the October meet.

Nice shed! Is it true what my friend said? He lived there and said there are these cockroach bugs call palmetto bugs?

Bonneville94 - YUP! Them roaches can be about 1-1/2" long and they can fly. First time you see one, it scares the crap out of you. They don't fly often, but when they do, it'* like a B52 coming in for a landing.

Mostly they stay outside, but if they come in, the giant wolf spiders like to come in to eat them....yeah, baby!

Bill, I am buying material for HD shelving today. First things first.

And Jim, That is my plan. If I don't get the shelves in there first, there will never be room, lol.

EWW! Sorry, but I hate bugs that are like that and fly. We went to Myrtle beach and they were everywhere! I freaked when one got in our hotel room.

Hopefully we can get him motivated to get shelves in there before the meet.
