Today was the big day. My shed arrived. The shed mover called me at 9:30 and said he would be at my property at 10:15. Just as I was about to leave work, my boss sent out an email that said I must attend a teleconference. I tried to call him but he didn't answer so I left a message with a co-worker and snuck out. When I got to the end of my street I happened to see my neighbors coming down the road. These were the neighbors who are going to help me pay to have the road fixed. It was nice to meet them in person. I am meeting so many new people lately.
My shed arrived and he managed to drive down my rocky road and position the shed where I wanted it.
He even leveled it for me which was very nice.
Here is the shed's new home. I need to trim that tree some more. I mentioned that I wanted to move in to the shed and he said that he moved 2 sheds for someone who hooked them together and their mother-in-law lived in them. Interesting.
Since he had that nice big truck, I asked him if he could do me a favor and knock over my leaning TV antenna tower. It leans a little more every year and I didn't want it to fall on me or my truck.
He backed his truck up and pushed it over. I don't know if any parts are salvageable but I will put it on Craig's list for free and see if anyone wants it.
Cost of my new/used shed: $900
Cost to move: $350
Almost instant gratification...priceless.
I am very glad that I didn't attempt to build my own shed. I would have been very frustrated and probably have given up after spending hundreds of dollars. By buying someone else's shed I recycled building materials, helped out a local person who needed the cash, and gave money to a local business to move the shed. Looks like a win-win situation to me.
