Daddy, Mommy, Baby … our Shed Family is Complete :-)

Three years ago hubby offered to help our son-in-law build a new shed in their backyard with the proviso that we could use a section of it to store some of our items. We had things that we took south during the winter and we needed somewhere to store them in the summer, and things that we used during the summer but needed to store during the winter. This resulted in “Daddy Shed”.

Unfortunately this is the best picture I can find of Daddy Shed. I know I have a better one but I can’t find it ☹. Daddy Shed is big and has lot’s of storage shelves. Daddy is insulated, because it can get cold in the winter and very warm in the summer. Daddy has plywood walls, and along with shelves he also has a workbench with lot’s of power outlets. Daddy’s colour scheme matches our daughter’s house.

Last year we took our site at Cocopah RV Resort as an annual site, meaning it was ours year round. We didn’t do this because we planned on spending all winter in Yuma, we still want to tour around and see other places, but we really did want to have somewhere to store our Christmas decorations that we use in Yuma and we wanted a refrigerator/freezer to give us extra space. This resulted in “Mommy Shed”.

Mommy Shed is smaller than Daddy Shed and her colour scheme matches Maxx.

Mommy is also insulated, because the summer’s are so warm in Yuma, and she has drywall walls painted white. Mommy Shed has one set of shelves and a full size refrigerator. She also has an outlet on the outside for a future, small, outdoor kitchen.

We were so happy having the extra storage/fridge space in Yuma that we thought, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a small shed in Kelowna where we could store some items when not in use and have a spare fridge. At the campground we also needed room to store all the pamphlets I use to stock the pamphlet rack, so hubby asked if we could build a small shed on the site of the existing pamphlet rack and the answer was yes! Baby Shed became a glimmer in our eyes 🙂

Because he had to take down the old pamphlet rack to put up the shed hubby built all the pieces before we assembled it … no this wasn’t a kit (none of the sheds were kits), the whole shed was hand made by hubby 😀

Baby Shed at full term and ready to be delivered ☺

Once everything was ready he removed the old pamphlet rack and within a few hours Baby Shed was delivered.

Baby Shed, being the baby, is the smallest of The Shed Family.

The extended roof on the left hand side of Baby Shed is to keep the rain off the pamphlets which will be housed on the left hand wall.

Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of Baby Shed in the two days that followed her birth, but here she is at three days old!

I really love how Baby Shed looks and she does a good job of displaying the tourism pamphlets … no idea why she is a she, she just is ☺

The left side of Baby Shed holds a large pamphlet rack and bulletin board.

Baby Shed also holds a full size fridge and shelving unit but she does not have as much other storage as her parents, she has no insulation, and studs for walls. We will not be leaving anything in Baby Shed when we go away for the winter so she doesn’t need insulation.

Baby Shed was painted what I call Campground Brown so that she fits in with other park buildings and blends in really well with the landscape.

We are very happy with our shed family and don’t expect any additions 🙂

Until next time …
