Water Shed Momment

Our buldozer “Dozy” and our work PickUp “Moby”, have had to remain out side in all weather conditions.  We decided to give them a little protections with the help of 3 guys from West Coast Metal Buildings in Salem, Oregon. They put up a metal “carport” for us next to our storage barn. The building process was amazingly fast.IMG_0507
First we had to create a level gravel pad and have the underground power line marked. They guys showed up with all the carport material on a trailer.  Here is a time-lapse video showing the build.

Wow, That was Fast!  We had some salvaged metal roofing panels (that happened to be the same color green),  so we attached them to the side supports to give us even more protections from the elements.

It is wonderful nearing completion of our entry hall.

IMG_0485I added copper screening to this antique porthole which adds a cool and functional feature to the broom/utility closet.  (the space is well vented and gets some natural light)IMG_0491IMG_0495Pretty much all we have to do now is save up for a door blank to cover the water heater opening on the left. (matching our other interior doors) And get a storage cabinet that will go to the right of the yellow settee to hide the back of the refrigerator. (IKEA here we come)  Of course there is also trim work to do but it’s great that our entry hall is no longer a tool storage room.
