New Shed!

Remember this post from months ago?  That post was from the day we ordered our new shed.  

Since then, I wondered and bit my nails, wondering if I picked out the right colors, if they would look okay, how the shingles would look etc.

Well, no need to wonder anymore!  Today was delivery day!  I was horrified when it poured last night and wondered if he'd be able to drive a truck on the wet yard.  It did sink in at a few spots, but not too bad, not huge ruts which we were worried about!

Here comes the truck down our tiny, narrow road!  It arrived at 9:22 AM.

Not much room to bring it in, it's amazing how these men can drive these trucks!
This shows just how close to the house he had to get to the backyard.

Getting closer!
Now, they swing the bed of the truck around so it's facing the direction you want!  
Now, they start moving the bed of the truck forward.
Okay, this is just plain scary.
Make any adjustments as to where it is to be placed.  Continue to move the truck bed out as the back of the shed rests on the ground.
And there it is!  They added the ramp kit to the doors and had it all set up!  They actually left our house by 10:17, isn't that just amazing?  

My hubby says I can have the left side of it, I'm going shopping for carpet, a sofa, light and table!  Now we have to build shelving for the inside and move everything back in it from the old shed and see how much space is in it!

Landscaping around it will have to wait for next year.  I will be adding two curly willow trees to each side of the door that I all ready have in large pots.  I think a bench along the side and I'll probably keep it simple with a few potted plants.

Now I want to re-side the house to match the shed!

Wow. What a process they went though. I can't believe it took them so little time to get it into your yard and in place, rain and all. What will you do with all that extra room? It looks cute enough to live in.

Congratulations! This is the perfect shed. It sure beats the little dinky box I bought. LOL

OMG, that's just amazing. I can't help but wonder if someone was taking a picture of you hanging out your bathroom window though. lol
That looks just like a little house ~ wonder if I can buy one to live in! Maybe not, but it was a thought.
Love the colors. Can't wait to see what you do with the outside decor next year.
Have fun with your new "toy". haha
