The Storage Shed

Once upon the time,
there was an old shed...

Ok, seriously.
When we bought our home, it came with a storage shed.
We have owned this house for almost 9 years, and the shed had been on this property for around 30 years...at least.
We used this to store lawn mowers, bicycles, various tools and my never ending wood collection.

Given that I have now finished the new shed
(yes, pictures are coming soon),
we decided it was time to say goodbye to our beloved red barn.

But don't worry, 
we didn't just trash this beauty.

We called a small buildings moving company and send her off to a friend's backyard.

They much needed a place to store things, and at 120 sq feet, this shed is almost 1/4 of their entire home. 
We were so happy this turned out to be a big blessing for them.

So the legacy of this shed continue to live on.
Here she is in her new home.


Yes, it's a "she"...don't ask. lol

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

It was a cute shed. I think I'm going to paint ours red and white next summer. What a sweet gift to your friends. I hope they love it.
