What gardener does not want a shed?I do. Or, I did. My sister has moved into a lovely condo and that left a neat little shed without a home. 'I'll take it...I'll take it!!!!' So now I have a shed. I scoped out the yard and came up with what is truly the worst possible spot for it.
1. There is an old 33 year old willow tree in the corner I wanted it.
2. This willow corner floods in the winter. The water table rises to about five inches above ground.
So yesterday, long suffering husband Allan, took out the tape measure to figure out if it would squeeze along side the huge willow trunk. Barely. Then he hatched a plan to elevate it. Using pier posts, 2x4's and plywood, he raised a platform. Today when I got home..ta da, shed is done. How lucky am I.
