Home Project: Barrel Shed

Owning a home means always being busy with upkeep, and recently our barrel shed, made of wood, has been falling apart even though its less than 2 years old. Turns out that the $400 shed wasn't a good investment, so we finally gave up and bought a plastic one.
  Tom put the plastic one together, and that left me (Rob) to perform destruction of the old wooden shed. Tom's always better at building things, and I'm always better at destroying them, so it was a perfect balance. I took the doors off the old shed, and we're using it in the backyard near the tool shed, to store outside stuff. Here's a pic of the old shed as I was taking it apart, and the new shed.
  Bottom line: If you need a barrel shed, get plastic. Wood is too fragile with the extreme summer heat we now get, and the cold winters.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
