Unpacking the Shed

When I started taking the shutters out of the shed I realized I had been “saving” stuff.

Clearing the shed.

I took a few photos and listed 3 categories on Craigslist.

Window still in the jamb.
Rotten wood with old glass.
A nice pile for hobbyists.

Windows — some still in the jamb, some almost rotten, some ready for projects or installation — take one, take all for $5.

The old door is still in good shape.

I’m also selling the heavy old wood door to the Cottage.

The handle on the cottage door is warm vintage brass.

It has a nice brass lock and handle for which we have the keys. $10

More Craigslisting.

Finally we have some decorative shelving that we will no longer be using.  Take any or all — $5.

Looking forward to clearing the shed’s work bench very soon.

I minimally price things to keep the moochers and scroungers away.  Next weekend everything will be FREE. Everything that doesn’t go will be dumpsterated.

What’s next on your to-go list?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
