October Garden Shed Update

>> Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Since my garden shed's construction was complete my updates have been less frequent. OK it's not really complete yet but the physical structure is finished. (Feel free to check out the YouTube slideshow on the shed's construction) There is a huge list of things I would like to add or improve on the shed and over time I'll be tackling them one at a time.  As a busy stay-at-home dad it's tough to find times to get the shed worked on and take care of everything else that needs done. This past weekend I spent a little time tinkering and fixing up a few things on the inside to get it ready for winter. 


Here's what I accomplished:

  • Cut a cabinet to fit under the front left window.
  • Moved a cabinet to fit a countertop.
  • Cut and added countertops to the back cabinet, the front left window cabinet and one that fits in between the two recycled patio doors on the left side of the shed.
  • I cleaned out some of the junk that was accumulating like old plastic sheets that I used for extra winter window insulation.
  • Added a shelf.
  • Added an old medicine cabinet to a wall.  It has a mirror which will add a little reflectivity for light and has storage.
  • Moved around a few pots.

Here's a few pictures of the inside of the shed:

This is one of the cabinets on the left side of the shed. I found two narrow cabinets at the dump on day and brought them home to use for storage and counter space.  One counter top had to be cut to fit but the other one was just about right. In between the two cabinets I cut and fit a wire shelf to use for holding plants. I had to pack the shed up before I took the pictures so please excuse the mess!


On the back wall of the garden shed is a cabinet that until now was topless!  Now it has a nice smooth working surface for potting, planting, or other projects with a great view of the woods behind us.

The medicine cabinet came from my parents house and has been sitting around for a long time n the shed. I'm glad I was finally able to put it up. Inside I'll locate my mower and weedeating supplies.  
Along the left wall and up next to the rafters I installed a shelf for holding pots.  It could be used for storing all kinds of supplies but around here used pots are certainly in need of good homes!

Thanks for visiting the garden shed!
