I’ve been needing a shed setup with a workbench to house a lot of tools and other equipment, as well as an escape from the kids.
Well… maybe not the second part, but absolutely on the first.
We were out checking a few places that sell sheds and came across a deal too good to pass up.
Found a Cardinal 10×16 that was already wired with lights and outlets, as well as having vinyl siding and a metal roof.
The shed was a repo that had set for months and months on their lot. Since it was at the end of the year, they wanted to get rid of it any way possible.
It appeared that whoever was the previous owner had set it up as a girls playhouse.
After removing windows covered in butterfly stickers, I still need to give her a fresh coat of paint and do something with the window boxes after this winter is over.
Once it was off-loaded and set it up, I started finishing it off inside.
Added insulation and drywall all around and installed some really cool 4-ft LED lights in the ceiling.
Not only does it give me all the light I need to see measurements, but these lights use very little energy.
It came with 3 outlets, but more are being added, including one outside plug that will serve a lot of good use.
I took an old workbench and replaced the 2×6’s it had for the bench top with a couple of nice 2×12’s.
Next, I wanted to put up some pegboard, but didn’t want to just use a 4×8 sheet and have a blah looking area.
So I cut 3 sections and put them up in a corner area as you can see.
Now it’s more level, as well as an extra couple of feet wider.
Only thing left is to get some of the more important things. You know… mini-fridge, TV with Direct hooked up and some curtains for the windows!
Well… maybe add a nice Lay-z-boy or extra bed. Hey, they don’t call it Dad’s Man Shed for nothing.
