Mr. Squash and I have just completed our very first construction project! You might call it Squash House Two! Our day began with smiles and energy.... ...here I am in below in the backyard with all the parts laid out in order, sorting the different screws and gadgets into their own bins for easy identification. I poured through the instruction manual a few days before this. There were so many languages on each page that I had to take a yellow highlighter and highlight the English sections! Fortunately most of the pictures were fairly clear! I'm sure many of you have encountered pictures that appear to be in a "language" other than your own!
Here we are at the first stage - the floor! We leveled the ground as best we could. The fence you see is going to be replaced sometime this summer - a project we are happy to have someone else do!
Three sides are up! At this point Mr. Squash is beginning to think he may have to move in there!
Here is a not-so-flattering picture of me sliding in one of the roof panels!
Just when we were sure Mr. Squash would be taking up residence in the new building, we saw this hot air balloon fly over the neighbors house! It was uplifting in more ways than one!
And here is Mr. Squash in front of our finished garden shed! Arent' they both cute? It took us about 8 hours of very hard work - the smiles and energy were mostly depleted at the end, but the next day we were smiling again despite some very sore muscles! We think this is the beginning and end of our joint construction business!!
