Jock’s put up a wood shed

shed 1shed 3

To a gifted bricoleur like Jock, this shed should have been a piece of cake.  But it took him best part of 3 days – like any flatpack operation, holes didn’t match up, bits were the wrong way round and other bits were missing.  He’s started loading it with wood, to stop the wind blowing it away, but we haven’t yet had the estimate for installing a woodburner in the sitting room.  Ah well, it keeps him off the streets and out of mischief, as he always says to me about my quilting and blogging activities!

  2. I was wondering why a wood shed. Heh heh. I promise not to tell Jock of this most flattering picture of him. I know you can hear me laughing!

    yep- we have a new wood shed too- but being in the mountains it’s a bit bigger as we need to burn more wood through the winter! I too am a quilter in addition to being a blogger…nice occupations by a cozy fire! Cheers!

    That makes so much sense to have one of those for wood! It is so hard to start wet wood when you need to build a fire! Good job Jock!

    Enjoy your weekend!
