Sooner than we had expected, our new shed got delivered. It is such a smooth process and totally painless for us. Thankfully the foundation or shed pad was ready. Just a couple of days before we had added a little bit of clear stone to top up the sand and gravel foundation that we had filled in previously and I had posted about in my last update.
The finished shed pad
A heavy 4x4 pickup truck with a trailer that had two sheds on it pulled up yesterday. On it sat one shed for us and another one to be delivered to someone else in Leamington.
Our shed has arrived
The driver had no problem backing into our lot and smoothly went along the fence and in-between the mature trees to get to the gravel pad.
Skilful maneuver along the fence and between the fence and trees
With a hand held remote control the Mennonite driver maneuvered the shed with the help of the high tech hydraulic on the trailer smack into the middle of the pad. He brought two guys with him who directed him where he could not visualize the position and proximity of the foundation border. It all went very smooth.
It's a marvellous trailer that can slide in all directions
Meanwhile our next-door neighbors struck a conversation over the fence with the delivery guy and his helpers as they discovered that they are all Mennonites from the same area. Small world.
Our trailer is loaded up with 2x4s, generator and tools, ready to go!
So here is now our new shed. I think it is a cute one. It has vinyl siding on the outside and should be maintenance free. The entrance doors are located just in-between three trees with enough clearance. There are a couple of vinyl window boxes in front of the two windows. The shed is tucked into a corner where the trees will provide a shady canopy in the summertime.
Benno is already busy inside wiring the shed up and preparing it for some inside insulation and paneling. Good thing he is working inside as it is pouring rain off and on today.
I am sure I will post more pictures of the shed and other beautifications on the lot, so stay tuned.
Hope you all stayed dry and had a good day today.
