So this summer we have almost spend every weekend at our place
in Island Park. We decided that our 2 yr old shed wasn't big
enough to store our atv's including our newest addition ...our Razor.
So we planned to build a bigger shed/garage or what I call Scott's
Last fall Scott started getting a head start digging holes
for the foundation (the foundation is on cement filled sonatubes, because
it is going to be a wood floor, it would cost as much as the whole building to
truck in cement for a cement floor so we opt for a wood floor).
We also bought all the OSB
(plywood) and took them up and stored them in the shed up there over the
winter to lightened the load with all the materials to go up in the spring
or we'd have to make a couple of trips to get it all up there.
Then he also built the trusseswith the help from Jon (our son-in-law)
early in the spring and stored them in our garage here at home along
with the mandoor, felt paper, nails, metal roofing, 28 bags of cement, sonatubes
52-2x6's (can't use 2x4's because of all the weight of the snow during the winter).
You get the picture....our garage filled up with materials that our truck
sat outside until the BIG day when him and Jon hauled the load up to
Throughout the summer which has included 3 weeks of vacation
and many weekend trips up in Island Park, which I won't complain at all because we
have had fun riding our new razor, trips to West Yellowstone,
building flower beds and just enjoying the outdoors.....
We finally finshed it last week.
for extra protection from the winter snow.
