    Default Plans for the weekend? Projects? Sheds

    Anyone got any big plans for the weekend? Any big weekend (or longer) projects going on?

    I'm in the last phase of my organizational stuff, so I think I'm gonna look for some bins for the garage and get a few more for my home office. Then it's time to look for a shed for the backyard so I can get some of the junk out of the garage like the lawnmower, etc. Might not get on for a couple of weeks, but have to start looking.

    Anyone been able to find any used sheds on craigslist? I thought for sure I could find one on there, but no luck at all with that. Strange there is really not much for that type of product when it's used.

    Nothing to really brag about. I have to Shlep up to Green Bay tomorrow morn. to be fingerprinted again for my HAZMAT recertification on my CDL. There goes a decent waste of time and gasoline. Like my fingerprints are going to change every 4 years. On the way back, i'm stopping at Lowes to get 3 more rolls of insulation for my garage. Already got the Modine 45,000 BTU Hot Dawg installed and by Sat. nite my 2 1/2 car garage will be fully heated and insulated. No more frozen busted knuckles!!!!

    Off this weekend with no plans and recovering from driving a worn out truck around Birminghams rough roads , have a job app. to fill out , laundry and clean up the apt. Only drive if needed because tags are expired on Silverado. Had to wait for Tax refund to pay $276 tax/tags and will cost more to take a half a day off to wait in line at the DMV. No sense washing truck with rain in the forecast maybe clean interior.

    Got a phone call from the guy who is going to replace my most of the floor in the downstairs on Friday. He move the start date up a week! So I am spending the weekend cramming 20 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag - all the furniture in the rooms effected has to fit in the three rooms not being reworked. The kitchen, sunroom and bathroom are getting mighty crowded! On the bright side, there is a bunch of clutter than is going to disappear. Before that construction dumpster leaves, it will be full!

    Dog is freaking out; all he does is follow me around and whine. Cat ....well.....its was freaked out before we started moving stuff around.

    I forgot I had a bunch of little league stuff today, had to get the uniform for my kids team and get his bat inspected (when did they start doing that???) ... guess they don't want any illegal bats that could pose a risk for the kids. So I had to stand out in the rain for that today.

    Got a bunch of stuff done around the house, started looking for a shed but i'm not going to make a move on that until I get some fence work done. I see a bunch of fully-build sheds around the region on CL that seem to go for like $750 to $1000 range, but how would I move one of these? They're so big I'd almost need an oversized utility trailer and a following "WIDE LOAD" vehicle.

    Otherwise, people are asking like bit % of the cost of me just going to home depot to buy one.

    This guy wants $225 for his ... pretty sure it's about 1/5 price, but how would I move it?

    Here's a good deal, $1000 but it's huge! Not brave enough to try to move that more than a couple of miles ...

    I'd love to have this shed for $800, but it's got to be 45 miles away from me ... poor guy lives in Plano and they don't take kindly to big sheds on a regular lot ...

    This is awesome for $1600, but it's 11 feet tall! Just too big to move. http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/grd/2888000584.html
