Hamish's first concert

posted on
Anna had purchased tickets to the roving Play School concerts quite a while ago for Hamish. Due to her being at home with James I ended up taking him. He had an absolute blast and enjoyed the whole thing. We had a bit of a water accident after the concert and it looked like he had weed his pants.

Side paving

posted on
We have had a dirt hole out the side of the unit for quite a while. I dug up all the grass, tree roots, and did a basic levelling of the dirt in preparation of re-using the pavers from the old patio. But funds were a bit short and it took quite a while to get around to getting the road base, bedding sand, and time to get the paving done.

Shelving in the shed

posted on
Well after a couple of solid weeks of work and organising, the shed is pretty much done. I have a few little projects that I want to get done, but the majority of the work is completed.

Shed wall and shelves

posted on
Some more work on the shelves in the shed. I have been contemplating how to build maximum storage into our little garden shed. I need some space for my grain drums, but I'd also like to get the whipper-snipper and garden tools hung up out of the way. And then there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be stored out of the way until I get to them or need them (mid-term projects) And I'm working in a 2m * 2m garden shed. Read on on for my solution.

Pegboard installed

posted on
Well I now have the peg-board installed in the shed. Looking good. Although I am a little afraid I have given myself a new OCD hobby. I still have some 2/3 doors to build and mount to the front to increase storage, but looking good so far.

Shed stuff: peg-board

posted on
In the search for creating as much storage space in our little shed as possible I am building a peg-board with 3 areas and will build on some doors with peg-board on the inside to store things. I finished building the frame-work out of non-structural pine last night. Read on for a picture
