You Knew I Was Going To Finish It!

You knew I was going to finish it, right? The garden shed is done. I dug some left over house paint out of the workshop and splashed it on the shed. It looks pretty good. I wanted to paint the door and trim but Norma wanted the door left as a reminder of the landslide damage (the door was the only thing that survived the carnage). Total cash outlay for the shed was only about $170 because I was able to use all the reclaimed cedar boards.

I also touched up the siding on the corner of the house where mud, rocks and trees had taken their toll on the paint job. The fence panels in the background are the reclaimed panels Brooks and Beau put up last weekend. Norma wants to stain them charcoal colour. I kind of like them the way they are.


  1. That looks great! I like Norma's idea about keeping the old door.

  2. Now let's see. Did you get a building permit for that? Is the wood stamped kiln dried Canadian? Was a soil study conducted? Good job, if you want something to do this winter outside of Baja let us know :)

    1. It's easy to do Chris. You could sit in your lawn chair and instruct Juan! LOL!

  3. When a man says he's gonna do something it will get done!
    There's no need to remind him every six months.

  4. I'm heading back to Algodones on Saturday. On my plate there is one tooth that was glued over the screws instead of having a hole in the tooth that was just filled.

    Not sure how they are going to fix it but they said my warranty would be void if I had it done by someone here so 5 hours down and then 5 hours back. At least they are putting me up in the Hacienda for no charge so I don't have to drive 600 miles in one day.

  5. 600 mile round trip is a long way for a dental appointment! I hope they can fix it without too much trouble. I have decided to forego my fly down September appointment and wait until November on the way to the Baja, Rick is waiting as well. It will let the bone grafts heal better.

    Good luck!
