My Potting Shed

I wanted to tell you a bit about my Potting Shed. I have been in search of pictures which I thought I took. I wish I took? We got our little shed to replace a small metal one we had. The old shed served us well but had just gotten ugly and worn out. We started looking around and we found a company we really liked at the Home Show in Boston. Then I saw them at the Garden Show. Finally in 2002 went to Pine Harbor Sheds and ordered our shed. They couldn't deliver until November. Darn it would be too cold to paint. I wanted to play with my shed, It is 10x16. Now I wish it were a bit bigger, but it was bigger than the old one that was like 6x8...who knew? The new shed is post and beam construction. These are some of my earliest pictures I can find...I may be missing the blue green door.


We added lights which we never had in the old one. It is so nice in the fall and winter.







 My shed sits sadly abandoned...unless I need bird food (which is daily this time of year)







 This is the piece of granite that replaced the builders ramp. I like how this looks much better.
This is my old bench that I hung onto for years until I found the perfect spot for it. Under the old window my son installed for me.

You can see it is a working shed.





This is how my shed looks right now. I am waiting for Spring because I have a few ideas....

Oh my goodness, Donna, it is gorgeous. It's my 'dream' shed. I hope to have one someday now that we will be in the country and have more room. I'm afraid I might spend too much time in there. You know...solving the problems of the world. :) Deb
