The Shed Man Delivers!

Well... it was tight!  Fortunately, Colby and Tristan from The Shed Man's New Lebanon, New York facility were highly skilled and up to the challenge of getting our new Elite A-Frame Dormer shed through some rather tight turns, low hemlock branches and antenna coaxial cable.

The shed is quite large at 10'x16'.  We went with dark brown and forest green shingles, the optional work bench, the door upgrade and transome window.  Delivery was one month from order.  I'm very pleased with the quality and value of the shed and extremely impressed with the installation skill of the crew (Colby and Tristan).  The shed blends right in with the environment.  The color and shingles match a historic Taconic Lake Association building.  The forest green shingles are also a perfect match to those on our house.

Duane Goodermote Excavation prepared this stone base.
Duane Goodermote and his assistant, Jarod Bouchard, did a fabulous job constructing the base.  I was delighted with the wall he created from the boulders dug out while preparing the base (how did the Manor of Rensselaerwyck renters ever farm up here?).  We had been very impressed with the work Duane and Jarod did on our raised bed septic system last year.  We also had them put in a base for a new garage that will go in next Spring.  I highly recommend Duane. 

Shed Man headed for the driveway.  Just under the phone line...

Coming down the driveway.  Some pruning required!

Cab adjustment for driveway "L"...

Tristan: "It's gonna be a tight fit Colby!"
"Get her under the hemlocks!"
"Raise that cable!"
"Comin' in for a landing!"

The trailer is amazing: up and down, back and forth....

"Perfect!  Let her down!!"
I'm glad we went with the optional transome window.  Beautiful view of the lake from the workbench!

Give those guys a nice tip, they earned it!
