The Shed Weekend

We have an adorable house that was originally built in 1945. I'm not sure what people did in 1945, but they apparently did not have the need to store a lot of things.

We, however, do.

I'm pretty sure we're the only couple on the block that has these items stored in their attic: sixteen flamingo cups, passover plague finger puppets, eight pirate skull cups, matching bumble outfits for dog and owner, LSU outfit for the garden yeti and two pairs of elf shoes. What can I say? Life's a party at the Hill House!

So we don't have a lot of storage space, but we DO have a large backyard. Therefore, we need: a shed weekend!

Chris wasn't happy with any of the sheds he saw at Home Depot so he talked to his friend, Casey, and they drafted plans. Casey, PD (Chris' dad) and Gma (Chris' grandmother) all came in for "The Shed Weekend".

Here's our backyard as the morning begins:

Here it is in the afternoon:

Even Gma helped! 
 And here's the finished product:

Now our lawnmower, paint cans and 12 Mardi Gras costumes will finally have a home.
