Let's do something different!

Neither of us have set up a new shed. Yet. Time to remedy that.

Here are the bits and pieces for the new wood shed. One piece is marked 'A'. Couldn't find any other markings. There are no instructions either. I wish IKEA did sheds. I am rather fond of their Allen keys. The individual panels are pretty light, so no problem where the weight of them is concerned. We will just have to make sure to set up the shed when there is no wind. I can just see that gust of wind - the flying panel - and a gnome desperately clinging on to that panel.Just in case anybody out there is thinking, 'Why would they need to set up a new wood shed? Won't the old one do?' Here is a picture of the old wood shed.

See the door attractively lying on its side? Convinced? You haven't seen the roof yet. Ooops... there is no picture of the roof. Because there is not much roof left. This is also the side from which we can expect a bushfire reaching our place. So it is important to have the wood stowed away safely. Now we will only have to move all the wood from the shed. Pile it up so it is out of the way. This is about half of the wood which we moved today. The rest will follow soon.
Moving the wood is the fun part. Demolishing the old shed will be a breeze.
Organising someone to come out to flatten the shed area plus the areas where we will set up our new rainwater tanks.....that will hopefully be less painful than we expect.

Are you going to make raised beds out of the old shed? Just in case you haven't got enough to do.

That's a great idea! I hadn't thought that far ahead.

Hmm... more work?! Oh well, what the heck!
