Self-assembly MINI-SHEDS

71 comments


Little storage sheds …

… they seem to be a great idea …

……………………………………………………….

… but the assembly instructions !

… they can be confusing …

……………………………………………………….

Each shed is made up of these parts …

………………………………………………………

… so the easiest way for self-assembly …

… is to ask your dog to make the sheds for you …

………………………………………………………

Conker has studied the paperwork carefully …

… and has made one shed already …

He is about to assemble another …

………………………………………………………

Firstly, fit the four pegs into the base …

………………………………………………………

Next, clip in the back panel …

………………………………………………………

Now add the side panels …

………………………………………………………

The shelf is adjustable …

… but this middle height is ideal for Shelties …

………………………………………………………

Finally, fix on the doors and the handles …

………………………………………………………

… and push four green pegs into the roof …

………………………………………………………

Then, hey presto, everything is in place !

………………………………………………………

Truffle can make sheds too … LOL

………………………………………………………

That’s two sheds all complete … ready for use …

………………………………………………………

Enjoy your extra garden storage :o)))

Do you have shares in the company Terra, you made it sound so simple. Good advert. Just what I need too.

What clever dogs did they study construction & engineering?

31 Aug, 2011

 

As always, too cute!! Thought you were up to something as you had been 'quiet' yesterday :)
Do you lend Truffle and Conker out? :)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi Cinders ...
Maybe I should ask for commission from the company ? ;o)
The £££ could buy a few bonios ...

Hello Grannyb ...
My dogs have Degrees with honours ... Lol.

Thanks Lil ... I was "quiet" because I had major dental treatment yesterday .. still trying to recover ...

31 Aug, 2011

 

Awww, sorry to hear that. Feet up, head down for a bit then.

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lol... A friend collected me from the dentist in his car, knowing I wouldn't feel too well.

He had kindly bought me some Wagon Wheels as a present. Are those also sold in Canada... ? ... they are huge chocolate biscuits...

I love the chocolate Wagon Wheels, but think it will be a while before I can eat them ...

31 Aug, 2011

 

Brilliant as usual TT. I love those sheds so neat and will pop in a corner and be very useful, they also wont need much up-keep just a wipe down in the spring maybe! Love the resident 'actors' too! x

31 Aug, 2011

 

Thanks Grandmage ...
My dogs love joining in with the garden tasks ;o) x

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lol, yes, familiar with wagon wheels but are you sure he's a friend bringing you these after major dental work? :):)
Possibly he gets a commission from your dentist? :)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lol. Lil ...

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lol. Karen ... Thanks ...
My garden tasks would be impossible without my doggie helpers ;o)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi Pam...

31 Aug, 2011

31 Aug, 2011

 

Nice to have two good helpers TT :o)) I'm glad you had them to decipher those instructions and put the storage cupboards together. You can be sure they will not fall appart now :o)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Thank you Hywel ...
It doesn't take long to fill up the shelves ..
I might need another ten mini-sheds .. Lol.

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi TT im glad to see you keep your dogs working so hard now i know why they look so healthy and happy.I did notice that conker was doing most of the work lol.So i presume truffle was supervising which means you was the overlooker lol

What a great blog and we so enjoyed it ,it made our day.Thankyou as always TT :))))))

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi Mark...
Conker wanted to give you a rest from the DIY ... Lol.
Glad you all enjoyed the blog :o)))

31 Aug, 2011

 

Wonderful blog, Tt, laughed all the way through ... well maybe not at the instruction sheet ... but obviously Conker is much better at deciphering than a mere mortal! ... They will be great for storing away all the 'bits & bobs' ... hope you're feeling ok following the dental treatment? ... I had a filling at 12 today ... so it's been soup/yogurt/ice cream since ... :o(((

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi TT conker and truffle are fantastic they show how happy and contented they are in every photo you take of them.They love it posing for all the gardens tricks.

Julie says its about time you found me another project because i am driving her mad lolol,

but i am starting a new decking area in our garden which is making julie very excited about and its keeping me in good books lol.:)))))))

31 Aug, 2011

 

Hi Shirley ..
Glad you found food to eat after your dental treatment ...
I was determined to eat the Wagon Wheel, so broke it into very tiny pieces...Lol.

Good luck, Mark, with the decking ... we can decide on another project in a few weeks' time ;o)

Conker and Truffle love to join in with everything ... :o)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lovely blog Tt...made me smile...:>)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lovely blog again Tt. Wish we had had Truffle and Conker to help us understand the 'guess what we mean' instructions when we put ours together........ :o)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Conker is a good worker, he just gets stuck in without any moans and groans and is so tidy whilst working, Truffle I take it is on the packaging side of things, not a bad side to be in charge of for such a young lad...
Smashing blog Terra and I love the pics..

31 Aug, 2011

 

Oh TT I do love your blogs with your two little helpers lol:)

31 Aug, 2011

 

Lol what impressed me the most was that one dog was taking pictures of the other one! Smart dogs - do they contract out?

Think I'll keep the bloc handy, your photos look a lot easier to follow than the printed instructions!

1 Sep, 2011

 

Wish my doggies would help with sheds/gardening, they just run around playing and woofing!
How old are your doggies TT? They are so beautiful.

1 Sep, 2011

 

Great Terra - damn better than I can do with instructions ! Looks great

1 Sep, 2011

 

Mission accomplished once again, what would you do without your super dogs.

1 Sep, 2011

 

Well done Conker and Truffles brilliant job, now I know who that advertisement belongs to in local shop by me hire us to assemberler your flat packs call ....... lol but true.

1 Sep, 2011

 

Just love your doggies TT. They are sooooo helpful too. How much did you have to pay them?

3 Sep, 2011

 

Brill thanks for showing us how to do them, sometimes i think the instructions on things sometimes make it sound harder than what it is, hope you feeling better after your visit to dentist.x

3 Sep, 2011

 

well done conker and truffle... next time i want something put together i will have to ask kayleigh for help....lol
Great pics TT... and gla dyouve got your extra storage...

4 Sep, 2011

 

Thanks Moti, Homebird, Lincslass, Nana, Fran, Lulu, Paul, Stroller, Sixpence, Poppylover, Clarice, and Holly...

I'm in the middle of a mammoth job of sorting out my bigger sheds ... thank goodness I have Conker and Truffle to help me ... ;o)

4 Sep, 2011

 

It was great seeing how Conker & Truffles both helped you to put up those sheds, TT! They are a great pair of helpers! LOL!

I hope you can eat whatever you like now, TT. I remember from being a boy that we used to love those Wagon Wheels!

4 Sep, 2011

 

Super blog Terra and what gorgeous dogs, and sooooo clever. I wish they lived near me. I could keep them busy.

5 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Balcony ... Thanks ...
I'm managing to eat lots of Wagon Wheels ...
maybe you should treat yourself to some of those too...
good to eat on the allotment with a cup of tea... :o)))

Thank you Breda...

Well, living near you would mean Gloucestershire... and that sounds wonderful to me ... and I'm sure my dogs would visit you and help out with your gardening ;o)))

5 Sep, 2011

 

Goodness I go away for a few days and miss this, good job by the boys, thank goodness you had their help, they look very pleased with themselves. xx

5 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Bob ...
Yes, my boys have been busy while you were away.
I'm so lucky to have them joining in with my gardening projects ... ;o) xxx

6 Sep, 2011

 

Terra, I'm wondering if you could teach Rosie and Meg the art of construction? They're wonderful girls, but I must admit to a twinge of jealousy when I see what your boys can achieve. Is it a boy girl thing do you think? :-)

6 Sep, 2011

 

Hello Bornagain ..
Conker also helps with vacuuming, sweeping, ironing, washing and much more ... :o)

7 Sep, 2011

 

Now it's more than a twinge lol:-)

7 Sep, 2011

 

those sheds look ideal especially for a small garden like mine, i need somewhere to put gardening tools and they would be great.

7 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Jackie..
They were on special offer in Argos...
and I'll lend you Conker to assemble them if you wish ;o)

7 Sep, 2011

 

well done conker for helping mum, they look great and will keep things dry, hope they dont blow away though :o(, where will they go Terra.

10 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Sandra ...
At the moment I have the two mini-sheds next to the side wall of my house ... and I have put heavy things on the lower shelves to ensure the sheds don't blow away...

10 Sep, 2011

 

good thinking my friend ;o)) hope its successfull x

10 Sep, 2011

 

Brilliant blog as usual Terra, and my two grown up children enjoyed it too.

14 Sep, 2011

 

Thanks Karen...
Conker and Truffle aim to please all age groups ;o)
LOL.

14 Sep, 2011

 

Not sure which age-group is right for my previous blog "Queue for the Loo" .... ?

14 Sep, 2011

 

That blog was perfect for ALL ages TT!! :)))

15 Sep, 2011

 

Lol. Grumpy is still waiting ... ;o)

15 Sep, 2011

 

Another great blog and good to see my two favourite Dogs looking so fit and healthy, it would make a great advert for the company who manufacture them ;0))

17 Sep, 2011

 

Hi PP... Thank you ...
Maybe I should ask for commission ...
... Conker and Truffle could starting earning ...
... have their own piggy-banks ;o)

17 Sep, 2011

 

Hi yes i so agree with PP everyone likes cute animals especially when they are as cute as your three.Still making us smile at this end lol as it fell down yet lol.:))))

17 Sep, 2011

 

Hello Mark and family ...
The storage sheds are still in place ...
... they survived the gales ... Lol. :o)

17 Sep, 2011

 

Excellent blog, Terra, oh you have such a gift at creating these! Loved the photos so much. My Raff is more in a supervisory role..He will sit and watch my OH for hours when he is working on a project..lol. I swear that Conker and Truffle could do film work..Perfect blog as always..\0/x

8 Oct, 2011

 

Hello Flori ...

thank you .... Yes, Raff would be good as a Director, wouldn't he .. which, in movie-making is such a very important rôle ...

I wonder how well Conker and Truffle would follow his directions .... ;o) x

8 Oct, 2011

 

On Saturday I helped some guys at church to erect a shed, not unlike your mini-sheds above, for the dustbins, to get them out of the church building. We could have done with the help of your two faithful helpers! It took five men 4 hours to erect it!

10 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Balcony...
Conker assembled each shed in 4 minutes ;o) Lol...
