I’m starting to lose patience with the guy I hired to remodel my she-shed. Nothing has happened since I first got the idea several months ago to make a she-shed out of the shed in our backyard. The guy can’t work on it when it’s raining, sunny, hot, cold, or any day of the week that ends in Y. I think he might be stringing me along.
So what do I do? I thought about doing it myself. How hard can it be to seal up the area between the roof and the walls? I bet I could do it with some really thick caulking stuff. My next step would be to find some re-purposed wood, cut it to the right lengths, and nail it to the studs on the inside walls. The guy down the street has an old rickety fence I could offer to tear down for the wood and there’s a chainsaw around here someplace.
I’d really like to have big windows in the front on either side of the double doors. I could go to Lowes and buy a couple of windows, bring them home, measure them, measure the walls so I could saw holes the right size, and use some of that Gorilla Glue to hold them in. I might even put some cute little shutters on the windows. I think I’ll paint the concrete floor a blue-grey color. The shingles all look good, but I have to paint the outside. I’m thinking of painting it plaid.
Kip said he needs to dig a drainage trench around the outside. Is that kind of like a moat? How hard can that be? We have shovels. I’ll just do it before I put the yard in. Lowes has artificial turf that looks a lot like real grass.
I think I’ll put some of those floating shelves up on the inside and some planter boxes under the windows.
All I’ll have left to do is buy a little desk, a couple of chairs, and a good used round rug. I don’t think I’ll even need curtains. I should be able to do it all for around $2000 dollars.
Don’t worry. I’m not quite finished…I think I’ll make a copy of this and put it where Kip, the remodel guy, will accidentally see it.
