Checking another project off the list...

I've wanted a garden shed for several years now, and two days ago we finally had one built!
I sacrificed two vegetable beds for it, but I am so glad it got done.

Ich wollte schon seit einigen Jahren ein Gartenhaus um all unsere Gartengeraete, Rasenmaeher usw. unterzubringen, und vor zwei Tagen war es endlich soweit und es wurde gebaut!
Ich musste zwei Gemuesebeete fuer das Haeuschen opfern, aber das war es mir total wert.
                                Two guys showed up Wednesday morning and got right to work.

      Mittwoch frueh standen zwei Maenner auf der Matte und haben sich sofort ans Werk gemacht.

       This is what it looked like at the end of day one. I was really surprised how fast it all went.

So sah es am Ende des ersten Tages aus. Ich war angenehm ueberrascht wie schnell das alles ging.

 This is what it looks like finished. I LOVE IT!! Now we need to go buy shelves and such and figure out how to make the most out of every square inch. Who knows, once everything gets moved in here, we may actually be able to fit a car into the garage. ;-)

So sieht das Gartenhaus fertig aus. Ich bin ganz hin und weg!! Jetzt muessen wir noch Regale usw kaufen und genau ueberlegen wie wir den Platz am allerbesten nutzen. Wer weiss, wenn alle Gartengeraete aus der Garage raus sind, passt vielleicht sogar ein Auto rein. ;-)


  1. Wow, that is one awesome garden shed. Do they want to come and build one for me :)

  8. It looks great! We have one that came with our house, but it is rather shabby and in need of being replaced.
