Where: Billings, MT
Two things stand out as a result of this project: One, it was a confidence-builder. I now build items, albeit very rustic, but I get better every year. Working with tools is an absolute joy. Two is the importance of the emotional connection with my granddaughters, who love working there with me. It brings an entirely different "feel" to our backyard. It is cozy. I especially enjoy all the knowledge I gleaned and now have my own wood workshop. Finally, the garden shed is a place of joy and contentment, as my granddaughters and I almost live there in the summers building and doing crafts.
Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
