When we set our home improvement goals and plans for 2016, the biggest project we wanted to tackle was to install a storage building/garage and a picnic area on the lower portion of our lot. We began this project in late March and the progress has been slower than we had hoped it would be. Back at the end of June, when I last posted about our progress, this was the way our Storage Building/Picnic Area project looked.
The building installation was the quickest step in this whole project. The installers arrived just 10 days after we ordered the building and it took them a total of only 10 hours spread over two days to get the building up. We set up folding chairs on the road above the installation site to watch the process. Mr. MT Nest and our neighbor can be seen in the upper right corner of the photo above keeping an eye on the process.
The path leading to the picnic area is more level and gravel was spread on the path.
The picnic area was enlarged, leveled, and a load of pea rock was spread. Four holes were dug for the concrete that will support the posts of the picnic shelter.
That’s where we currently stand with this project. We’re waiting for the electrician to complete the wiring and for the electricity to be connected. Then we can proceed with covering the stud walls and adding shelving, work counters, etc. We’ll also be contacting the concrete guys to have them come back and pour supports for the picnic shelter and then we’ll be able to put up the picnic shelter.
We are excited with the progress. This project has taken much longer than we expected it would. But we’re getting close to the time when all future progress will be solely dependent on us rather than waiting for the next step to be completed by a contractor.
