Shed 2 — The Wrath of Jan

We spend about $10/week washing and drying our clothes at a laundromat. So a little over $500/year.

However, probably more important than the money is hauling heaps of laundry around town — a drag especially when the temps rise.

The drag is on Jan because she does the laundry. She won’t let me do it because clothes suffer when I’m at the helm.

So . . . we’ve watched with envy as other park model owners acquired washer/dryers.

Long story short, I decided to build a shed (#2) to house a washer and dryer. I had helped our friends Jim & Marianne build their shed last year and picked up the basics of Shedology:  pouring a concrete slab . . . framing the shed . . . plumbing water & sewer lines . . . running electrical lines . . . etc, etc.

Started on February 7th and finished on the 20th. It was fun most of the time.

The photo saga (missed the part where Jim put in the shingle roof — sorry, Jim) . . .

    Jan’s big smile looks very unwrathful. Very nice job on the shed. I would have bought you a beer on that one.

    It looks to be snake-proof too.. Bonus!! Keep up the good work Tom. Sister Mary

    Good for you, Jan, for insisting on this necessity. Good for you, Tom, for building it. That stackable washer-dryer looks like the one I had (it was a Kenmore) when I lived in my condo. It’s a little workhorse. Nice work! Kath

    Cool, Hughes. I’ve just started watching your rvseniormoments blog. I am such a procrastinator. It only took me, what?, over a year? to get around to it. Looks like you two are having a great time. Kathy

    • Good to hear from you. So there’s an RV in your future?

        Well, not quite yet, but yes. We rented one last year to go to a wedding in North Dakota and then visit Mount Rushmore and the Badlands. We really loved it. Next weekend we’re going to the RV show at State Fair Park to check out what’s available. Deb’s also been hunting around on the Internet to see what’s out there used and new. So….pretty sure we’ll get one — just not sure when….
