Pool Shed Progress – FAQ’s Answered

I’ve been speaking quite a bit these days about the way it’s been 6 years since we’ve moved to white cottage farm & simply how there was an extended pause on main initiatives after having a lot hope that 2022 was our 12 months for giant issues to begin. The 12 months isn’t over but, however we’ve run into just a few hiccups which have put a delay on quite a bit. BUT we’ve made plenty of progress on many issues [not finished them] however progress none the much less so let’s begin celebrating that extra. I’m a glass half full sort of gal so I’m going to prioritize progress over perfection & progress over “done”. Want to do this with me? One massive factor we did this 12 months is transfer our she-shed that was used as our workplace previous to the pool space & now it has been dubbed the “pool shed” We wanted pool storage badly for chemical substances, instruments, toys, & extra. BUT you recognize me, I needed to make it cozy so I shared on a reel yesterday a little more of the ‘before’, ‘during’, & ‘progress’ if you wish to watch that, however let’s chat about a number of the particulars & reply some questions you had on the reel… 

What flooring did you utilize? 

I LOVE this flooring! Honestly randomly one night time we went into Home Depot & I chosen one of many ones that they had in inventory as a result of I’m not affected person. Thankfully the shed is small so we didn’t want quite a bit, however we went with: LifeProof Shenandoah oak [HERE] 

I appreciated that the colour was heat but not too orange or yellow. It was probably the greatest choices that Home Depot provided in inventory for a value level beneath $4.

What colour are the partitions? 

The partitions & ceiling are Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace in satin for each.

What did it seem like earlier than? 

You can see the she-shed [HERE] once we first obtained it. It had just a few makes use of within the time since 2019 from workplace & extra. The shed is from TuffShed & you possibly can see extra details in this post as well [HERE].

Where is the furnishings from? 

All of the present furnishings within the pool shed is vintage items I’ve been amassing for some time. All the items are very helpful for fairly storage & extra. I shall be sharing extra builds & makeovers on these items and extra quickly. 

Where is the sunshine from? 

The mild can be an vintage discover from an area store that was closing so I obtained a killer deal on it.

What sort of beadboard did you utilize? 

We ordered tongue & groove mdf headboard planks from our native lumber yard [West Michigan lumber]. It’s simpler to deal with & work with in our humble opinion & in fact we love the look.

Why did you’re taking the insulation out & expose the ceiling?

This has been one thing I’ve needed to do for the reason that shed was delivered years in the past. I at all times felt the ceiling was so low & had extra potential to really feel larger & I used to be proper. The ceiling being uncovered has made it seem like a complete new house. The means we peaked it has a spot between the ceiling & the roof which traps plenty of the warmth coming off the roof & primarily based on the situation it catches actually good airflow with the home windows open. For the winter months it’s so small {that a} house heater will suffice for our wants. We don’t want it to be temperature managed on a regular basis.

-build a desk on the entry facet & add a curtain to the desk for storage. 

-build cabinets on each side of the shed that mirror one another for extra storage. 

-paint the lockers & add {hardware}. 

-sand down that desk within the center & bleach it.

-add some white cottage farm particulars/embellish.

-I’m positive there shall be extra enjoyable available, however for now that’s an important begin.

What will you be utilizing this house for? 

That’s an important query. Right away it should in fact provide storage to the pool space for all the issues, however moreover that each house on our farm we attempt to make a artistic house  as effectively. We hope to have the ability to use this house for different issues like creating, escaping the home within the winter, & extra. When the house is completed I’m positive we shall be updating & discovering extra functions. 


I shall be including to this listing of questions as they’re requested so as to add extra useful particulars. I hope this primary spherical is tremendous useful & I stay up for sharing extra of the pool shed with you all! xx
