After meeting my handyman at Home Depot on Monday and buying $500 worth of supplies, I headed to the office. I passed the portable mini-barn lot as usual but this time I decided to stop. I have always assumed that these buildings would be more expensive than the sheds from the shed company plus, they are only open 10-5 so I haven't stopped. I pulled in and wandered around. The salesperson wasn't on site so I grabbed a brochure. The largest shed was 12' x 32' and I fell in love.
It is smaller than the 24' x 24' garage I was planning to build but it is already built, and it has 2 lofts, and it is cute!
A blank slate, now if I only had the money and the time to work on it. Anyway, I went to work and called my mother to invite her to lunch so I could show her what I wanted to buy. She agreed that the buildings were cute and had potential. Since she is helping me finance this project, I was thrilled to get her blessing and I wrote a check. The only hitch is that I don't have a permit yet. If for some reason I can't obtain a permit I can trade in my building for 2 - 10' x 20' sheds because I don't need permits for buildings 200 sq.ft. or under.
Next step is to finish the site plan so that I can apply for a permit. My building will stay on the lot until I tell them to deliver it. Hopefully that will be within the next 6 weeks. I can't wait for it to be on my property so I can start imagining the interior. Yay! This is fun!
This is your new home? Its beautiful but you are going to have to go for smaller dogs! or maybe hamsters??
this is going go be fun!!
Lizzie, I bet I could fit dozens of chihuahuas in that loft!
Anonymous, is that you, Mom? :)
LOL Daizy, no I am not your mom, just a long time follower who lives one state over and always posts anonymous. You blog has introduced me to those mini homes and to see one come together - well I think it will be interesting to see how it evolves.;
Anonymous, hahaha, my mother calls me daily with her ideas about my little house. She is very excited too. Actually, I am following another blog of a woman who bought 2 of these buildings in Oklahoma. Her blog is Rancho No Dinero on my blog list. I really like what she did with her building. It didn't occur to me that the building she bought and the ones I kept passing on the way to work were the same because hers was a Derkson building and these were called WeatherKing. Now that I look back at her photos, they are the same buildings. I wish I could just work on my little house all day but I guess I can't quit yet unless I want to live in a little building with bare walls and no insulation. I can't wait to get to that point though. Getting it delivered is going to be the highlight of my year!
I love it! Excited for you!
Thanks, Dobermom. It won't seem real until I get it on my property. I can't wait!
