One mans junk

25 Sep

Whenever we have the car on garbage day eve it seems like there is something I want to stop for. Elvis clocks, cross-country skis, birdbath bases…I don’t stop usually..this week I did a double driveby on an old suitcase but settled on this 2×4 structure. Jango sits on an ottoman and watches out the window so I am going to turn it into a bigger perch where he can sleep on it too. The bed in J*s room is high so I am going to make it double duty as a higher step for getting into bed. I am getting close to finishing off the floor and the shed so it seemed like a perfect time to introduce more work and clutter into the mix. I put some wheels on it from a piece I got out of the garbage in the falls which had nice wheels.

This project could also morph into a new inside wood storage bin. Or kindling and firestarter bin. Or a rocket. Once the rain lets up it’s on to shed festivus.

    Wow, that sucker is sturdy… I’d call it treasure myself. We sometimes drive around on garbage day in town for one reason or another… and I marvel at the things people throw away.

      I know it! A local friend is a master of construction yard garbage should see the acre of treasures he has..everything from bricks to 30 foot long metal culverts….he built one of his buildings from extra corrigated metal from job sites..and he has a buddy who built a shed from scrap studs just 4-6 inch scraps continually nailed down until he had enough for a full shed..alot of nails but talk about sturdy!..they both make me look like a rank amateur. Hehe
