01.19.15 Nice light yellow storage building

Roy and I shopped for a storage building for some time.  We decided upon the Heartland Rainer Gambrel Wood Storage Building from Lowe's.  It's a 10 x 10 building with a storage loft inside.

05.08.14 Update from San Diego, TX where it actually rained (a little)!

We woke up yesterday to a light, light rain and on the news that evening you'd have thought it had really rained a lot.  I don't think it rains very often here so they talk about rain coming a week away, on every evenings news!  This morning we also had some sprinkles for over an… Continue reading 05.08.14 Update from San Diego, TX where it actually rained (a little)!
