DREAM SHED, and our 401k

Only hillbillies could go to the local HomeDepot and find their dream home sitting in the parking lot.  Actually... we went to look at a Tuff Shed for all our junk that prevents us from parking our car in the garage, and came across some custom log sheds/cabins that were really quite cute and cozy.  Unfortunately they cost more than 2x what we paid for the Hemi!  This here isn't one of them, but its similar.  This shed only costs $13,000....  some assembly required, shingles not included.  (The one I was looking at cost $53,000!)  We hope some day to set a small cabin like this in the middle of some property, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, nothing fancy... just so long as there is room for my Bunn-Omatic and my computer.  And no room for the kids to move back into once they've moved out!

And if you aren't convinced yet about my hillbilly /redneck tendencies... Dickidoo and I went to the bank today to make a withdrawal from his checking account... and then went next door to invest in our retirement plan ... at the liquor store!  We bought some PowerBall and Scratch Lottery tickets.  Thats about as close as we get to a 401k.  I figure we've invested about 200 by now so we only need 201k more!  One day we'll hit it big, and when we do we'll be able to buy that Tuff Shed built for 2 and live happily ever after.

I agree, they make some of those sheds almost better than what some people live in. Plus they cost just as much as some homes.
Have a great day.

This is so pretty. I love it. I have a ranch and many animals with a log cabin and a lake on 65 acres of land please come to my journal sight and see my my pictures of my pet deer. He is wild but I tamed him to eat and drink out of a cup. I don't know how to put the link on here but when you go to journals type in Judy Pearl then go to Moments of Judy Pearl and you will see the deer eating bread out of my friends mouth. Your dream sounds like what I have so I know you will love it. I know you are enjoying your shed for I wouldn't trade my log cabin for all the tea in china. Judy Pearl
