Today we’re going to try to move this ugly eyesore of a shed.
I think it’s gonna be a pain in the butt.
(laughing) Mainly because I don’t know that we have the right materials, but we’ve got
some 4x4s to set it on once we move it.
2x4s to act as tracks, then we have a bunch of these PVC pipes that we’ll hopefully
be able to roll the shed on.
We’ll see how this goes.
Today’s the day we’re going to try to move this really ugly eyesore of a shed from
here (which is right behind the house and is the view out the back bedroom).
We’re going to try to move it to the backyard.
We’ll see how this goes.
We have a jack that’s underneath the back of the shed now.
We had to dig it down a little bit.
My husband’s going to go ahead and lower the jack and we’re hoping we can shove some
more of these PVC pipes under the shed.
So, wish us luck.
“How’s it going?”
By raising the shed up with a car jack, we were able to feed two PVC pipes under the
middle of the shed.
Then we tilted the shed back like a teeter-totter to slip a 4x4 under the shed to support it
from the front.
So, we got the pipes under the shed and we’re going to try to move it all the way into that
back corner there.
Bandit, are you going to help us?
Once we got the shed tipped up, we could start feeding the 2x4’s under the shed facing
the direction we wanted to move the shed.
They will act like tracks.
The PVC pipes are then spaced out and laid on top of the 2x4’s.
“Alright, how are we on our tracks?
We’re going to have to spin it.”
You can see we’re making slow progress pushing the shed on the PVC pipes on the 2x4 tracks.
Every once in a while, we’d position the 4x4 into the shed door and use it as leverage
to turn the shed.
It was tough work, until we realized… …the PVC pipes were rolling parallel to
the floor joists and bending slightly.
As soon as we changed the PVC pipes perpendicular to the floor joists, we were able to easily
push the shed across the yard.
Time for a little victory dance!
To keep the momentum going, one person grabs the PVC pipe that pops out the back and positions
it under the front.
As you can tell, rolling the shed to the back of the yard wasn’t hard for two adults,
a teen, and a dog as a cheerleader.
Just for reference, that’s where the shed was.
And here’s where we got it to right now.
It’s getting there.
Once the shed was in it’s new location, my assistant Brett and I worked together to
get the shed leveled.
After laying down a base of drainage rock, we used a combination of blocks, and 4x4s
to support the shed off the ground.
Let’s look back at this ugly Frankenshed….because you won’t recognize it in a minute!
We replaced the warped door and replaced the plexiglass bubble window.
Then this shed got a makeover with some trim and fresh paint.
Oh, and we replaced that patchy privacy fence with something a little better looking, don’t
