Our new backyard shed.

You’re not officially a resident of the suburbs until you’ve got a shed out back.
7:30am, yesterday morning my boys were picking up backyard toys at the last minute to make room for our new Tuff Shed.
When they said they were going to deliver it Tuesday morning I didn’t realize it was going to come in pieces.  
They laid it in backyard piece by piece.
Then began to assemble it.  
6 hours later we had ourselves a new Tuff Shed.

At this point it has a long way to go to give it that cutesy-tootsy cottag-y feel but I’ve got lots of plans up my sleeve which may be more suited for next spring.  I was hoping for more of a gray shade but it’s looking a tad blue.

At any rate it’s large and spacious…just what we pack rats needs.
We decided to have a party and eat dinner in the shed to celebrate.  
Now it’s just like home with spilled milk and pizza sauce stains on the floor.
Next up… a chandelier, wallpaper and rug whole lot of boring tools, machines and bikes.



  1. We aren’t even remotely concerned that the exterior color casts blue rather than gray. All evidence indicates that Michelle is a master with a paint brush and can make the blues go away.

    Love your new building! Anticipating the landscape plan which I have every confidence will be forthcoming with the blooming of Spring!

  2. So cute! I would love a shed in our backyard, but unfortunately the garage takes up the entire end (width) of the lot. I hate it! Drives me crazy. Seems very cozy and I love the colors!



  3. Wait, what? No chandelier??? :) Love your new shed!

  4. That is what we are doing currently…but from scratch. (yours looks much easier:) Pouring concrete today. My husband lives for this stuff!
    But it makes room so we can tackle lots of indoor projects this winter, and not work around a tractor!

  5. Oh My! So fun! I can’t wait to see what you do with it! Please tell me it involves a chandelier!

  6. Is the solution to eating outside all winter? Love it!

  7. Hey, you can add a chandelier even if you’re just storing tools in there. You only live once, right? : ) Love it!

    You should Check out Rough Rack 4×4 Tool Racks. They hold SO MUCH more and look much cleaner than any other rack I could find. They can hold brooms, tools, strollers, scooters, car seats, Cozy Coupe cars, folding chairs, extension cords, bikes, ladders, you name it. Once I found these, I had nothing left on my garage floor.

    Came across your post while searching for samples of the colors available… wondering what size your shed is?
