It’s been a year since my dad was here helping me build the entertainment center. There’s been a million and one projects since then that I’ve envisioned and most of them were large enough tasks that I wanted to fly my dad down to help. He doesn’t do extreme heat so that leaves the fall and spring. Fall is hunting season. Sooo…spring is finally here and my dad shows up on Sunday to help me build a shed/playhouse. Our current shed has seen better days and we’d like an area for the kids to have a playhouse so I’m combining the two into one area. I’ve drawn and redrawn plans in illustrator. I’ve debated every material. I’ve met with contractors to make sure I don’t screw this up. I think I’m ready.
We’ve been getting the area ready before my dad arrives by having concrete poured for the foundation.
A year ago we had these enormous overgrown bushes.
Which we ripped out.
And for over a year it’s looked like this. It’s become a weed magnet and we’ve spent too much time spraying and pulling weeds in this area. It was the perfect spot to build.
We also have this random area on the side of our house that was ridiculously filled with weeds. It wasn’t visible to many and it’s embarrassing to admit that this is mild compared to the three foot weeds that have been known to grow here!
We had a great company come in and pour our foundation. Because we were already paying to have them at our house, it was cost efficient to have them pour a couple areas – an area on our driveway as well as weed alley.
We had two very curious boys and it took everything in me to keep them out of the patch right outside this door. I thought for sure I would find Cannon’s footprints all over it!
And now we’re ready. Ready to see if I ordered enough product. Ready to see if we can finish it before my dad has to go home. Ready to see if we really know how to build. I’ve got a couple contractors on speed dial to answer my questions!
Wish us luck!
