« Part 3: (October 2013 tour) some rearranging and organization Part 4 of shop/shed? gotta make some room series no next part

Some know I have been off work since memorial day due to a back injury. A lot of things got put on hold, but this building was delivered to my place a week before this happened. 4 days later I go back to work, 2 days later My back cries for mommy. 2 days later I am home again. Glad i got it, but the timing was awful since I bought it from the Amish/Mennonites on a rent to own basis.

lots of clutter out back of the house

12×20 shed that i had butted up to the back of my carport, it is mainly for storing my mechanics tools and storage of various stuff. Gets some things out of my shop that don’t need to be there. I have since built around it on the carport side, and it looks like it belongs there. I havebraced up underneath with more blocks and run electric to it, still lots of organizing to be done inside.

You have some of your blocks sideways….the holes go vertical for proper strength….like they lay them for a wall.

Nice shed though, looks like a handy space. Hope the back is better soon.

Aye, that was something I wondered about, those were set by the guy who brought it out. I need to get it jacked back up and flip them and level it out some more at some point, has settled a bit since I started loading with my stuff, one of many things that I just left due to back being screwed up

Nice addition. You can never have enough storage.
