Building For The Weekend !

 

  We have had a busy weekend building things from a rickety old tent shed to a new picnic table ! The weather has been hot and humid but we survived and besides it was fun to build what we did ! I did some photos during a little break or two  then got back to helping Papa !

                                             First the shed !

The tent shed was a leaker as the material of the roof and sides had worn out , so Papa built on the existing frame as it was still sturdy and good with new brackets to hold steel sheets on and put a new roof and two new sides and now it is even more sturdy and leak proof !

                                          This was Saturday !!

                            We had a little visitor as  slither from under the exciting shed  as we were building

                                                                              guess we woke him up !

                        So Papa picked him up and placed him in the wooded area behind the shed and off he went !

                                                                       Then we continued building !

                                                                      So the shed is all done now ! .

Then today we both built a picnic table to go with our  fire pit , who needs to go camping when ya have these in your own back yard ! We had fun building it to ! Again  little breaks  to get photos !

Your family accomplished SO MUCH, I am in awe of your energy. Next you can come to our house and build some outdoor stuff LOL.

Wow, Papa really is a talented and useful man to have around the place!!! Great reuse of the tent shed, and much sturdier now with all of the snow that you get in the winter I imagine! Hope that you enjoy some fun times sat around your table. Great to see a piccie of you too! xx

Awesome conversion of the old tent shed into a much more sturdy one. The picnic table turned out great. We are home bodies too. We did lots of camping when the girls were young but now we prefer to stay around the house. We do lots of day trips during the week but stay off the roads on the weekends.

You've certainly had a productive weekend with your 2 building projects! Each turned out great, I see.

Nice of Miggs to keep the work crew on task.
