The Adventures of a New Shed

We got a new shed..

One evening we randomly decided to make a trip to Lowes home improment, and for some reason we choose to go the the further away one which we hardly ever go to. We wandered outside and that's when we spotted one of the display model sheds for sale. It was the same exact one we had planned on eventually getting, except bigger, already built, and the same price as the un-built small one! So we called the number on the sign and left a message.

A few days passed and we had already talked ourselves out of getting it. We imagined it would be too complicated to figure out how to get it out of there and we didn't want to think about it right now. Buut when we listened to the voice mail the guy left because we ignored his call, it didn't sound that complicated at all, so after a few more phone calls, we decided to go for it!


A couple days later and we were at Lowes waiting to meet the guy who was supposed to move it to our house, and that's when everything got crazy. The moving guy was hours late, (although he insisted he was almost there every time we called him), the people at Lowes were unprepared and couldn't find the right forklift attachments and we almost ran out of gas on the way there. 

Also there was this awkwardly placed pole so when everybody was finally ready to move it  they ended up having to move some other sheds out of the way first and then drag the shed out with some chains attached to a truck!

But they somehow did it!


And it made the journey to our yard in one piece!


We saw the shed on a Monday and it was at our house by Saturday, when we had no plans of buying a shed anytime soon! But I'm so glad we found him.


Then a few days layer we said goodbye to our old shed, who has been the background of many outfit photo shoots. The guy who came and got it said he had plans to turn it into a house for his ducks, so it went to good use.

  1. What serendipity, some things it seems are just meant to be! I love the colours of it!

  2. What a cute little shed! And at least the ducks are going have a new home! I love the size of your yard, I'd like a shed (and a greenhouse if we're being honest) but I don't want to give up any of my space so my garage will have to do for now!

  4. That was a fun exciting day & I love the new shed. It must've been hilarious to see your new shed speeding down the interstate. Glad it all worked out so fortuitously.
