A Good Old-Fashioned... Shed Moving??

We had the need for a shed. We looked at prices at Lowe's/Home Depot/Menard's, etc and found that the cheapest stable ones were about $1200! "Yikes!" said our budget. So we looked at other options. Some GCC members from across the street told us about a guy selling his shed a few doors down. We agreed on a really good price for us and it was a go. Now, HOW THE HECK DO YOU MOVE THIS THING? So after much research we decided to use the old Egyptian technique of rolling this thing on timbers. And what do you know? It worked!

The best thing was we had great friends to help us out. This is so important for us guys who tend to like to be do-it-yourself-ers. I'm often reminded of Pastor Mark's mantra: "The team outperforms the individual in the long run EVERY TIME." Or as I read in a fortune cookie once, "Many hands make light work." Brains + Brawn = Shed Moved! (notice the plural on brainS)

DC, Jeff and Cody - You guys literally rocked the house! ... or shed (more specifically)... :)

Probably one of the coolest things I've seen this week. Your daughter has a pretty good eye for photos as well.
