This was my old tool shed. My house was built in 1929. I am guessing this was added around 1970.
The roof was under a huge fir tree for years and was barely there. After the tree was removed it was unlikely it would make it thru the winter. I do believe the tree was protecting my sweet shed. Last summer I decided to repair the roof.
The workers came and after a very short time let me know the entire structure was too rotten to warrant a new roof.
What to do.. It had to go…
OK; let’s just create something fun.
I always like a focal point so decided to cruise around online for some interesting doors and work around them to come up with a more useable “shed”.
My thought was to have the shed look like an old boat house inside.
If I used a clear corrugated roof it would make a great place to photograph blankets. We won’t discuss the wind lifting the corner and tossing it 100 feet across the yard last winter…
I added a large fan for heat control and a small electric stove for the winter.
The floor is painted and iron shelves and window boxes were installed. I was able to reuse the old windows from the old shed I had salvaged on one of many trips to look for materials thru the years.
A used set of old french doors came from the neighbor’s front door re-do.
Yes, you can see my metal feed troughs on the left. There are tomatoes, beans, and carrots. The tomato plants are like something out of a science fiction movie. I read about someone who had planted sardines for extra growth on plants. Lucky that Harry ate half the sardines out of the container before I got them planted. They likely would have blown up the plants…
The urns were from my front yard. I loved them when I bought them but they never really fit in front. They had to be moved with a backhoe but they finally have a perfect place.
The fish shed will always be a work in progress but what a glorious chance to be a little crazy with some ideas.
My 4-legged supervisor Harry the sprinkler head destroyer is always around to plant geraniums with.
