Okay, “reveal” might be a bit of a stretch. If you’ve been following my blog for the past couple of weeks you already know how I built the frame and added the roof. I debated leaving the sides open or closing them up and in the end I left them open.
Ta da! It’s a simple structure to keep the sun and rain off the kids’ bikes. I added a couple of shed hooks (meant for brooms and shovels I think) which were the perfect size to hold their razor scooters.
Look at this beautiful scenery: sweet little bike shed, inviting wooden deck, perfect weather. You would hardly suspect that in reality, a rat has recently died under the deck where I can’t get to it. (If you live near water, you’re gonna get rats.) The stench of rotting flesh has attracted plague-like proportions of flies. Living the dream, folks!
From the other side you can see that the bike shed matches the colours of our house. Ignore the glimpse of the beige shed in the background. I’ll get around to painting it one day. I’ve also got a new garden bed planned for that plot of dirt between the shed and the bike shed. Stay tuned.
I took a few photos while the bike shed was empty but every single one had either a kid or a dog in it. (I try not to show many photos of the kids online.) Also, this was the only one where Tex wasn’t licking her butt. She’s a classy old lady.
I’m so happy I’m able to tick Bike Shed off my list of goals for this year. And it’s barely February! Coming up, I’m about to start working on our kitchen upgrades. Plus I’ve got some more (smaller) outdoor projects in mind while the weather’s so great.
