Shoving George into the shed ****update****

So by now, everyone should know that my beloved husband George needed a shed. And that I bought him one.

And that we needed electricity connected….and I managed to get that done. (thank you to the donors of the “let’s shove George in a shed campaign”)

What’s that? Oh, someone out there doesn’t know WHY George needs a shed! Sorry.

George makes model planes, tanks, ships and little teensy-tiny Army dudes.  His models aren’t just the silly plastic junk that kids buy and glue together.  His models are in several museums around the country.

He has over 150 models at the Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg, Texas…at least 45 at the Commemorative Air Force museum in Burnet, Texas, 16-20 more at the Corpus Christi Air Museum (again Texas) and several here in Enid at a few local museums (and a permanent display at our library)…

He makes these suckers inside our front room..which is SUPPOSED to be a craft/guest room. MY CRAFTS.

Thus the shed.

It is an 8 x 12 footer with two lofts.  We had it insulated, and we put up drywall last week. I have been waiting for a nice day to “mud in” the drywall, so today my friend Angie’s hubby Garry helped me do some.  We will probably finish up tomorrow.

Once the drywall mud dries completely, I will be painting the interior.  Then, and only then, can we begin moving all of George’s modeling crap out to the shed.

So, to keep everyone up to date, I took a couple of pictures.

Next week: Painting…then the big move!  WHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

  1. I did not know that he did such high-quality-sounding work. Good for him, and good for you for getting the space (and any chemicals) out of the house.

  2. Another obsessive! I live with one of those, and you have to get them out of the house – the smells can be a bit daunting. And we have shelves and shelves and shelves of the little critters (and tanks and planes and trucks and …). And the big tables to set up the scenarios …
    A shed is a good idea. A very good idea. Hmmmmmm…

    1. I highly recommend a shed for anyone that is into the modeling of things………it has saved our marriage in a prior home and will keep me from going loudly insane in this one!

      1. I like the sensation of going ‘loudly insane’ – I think I’ll have to use that in a story somewhen.

  6. Very impressive and inspiring! Three years ago, husband half-built an electric train set in a perfectly nice room in our basement. He never figured out how to make it work or brought someone to our home who could help him. The train and all the tracks just sit there. Maybe I’ll build a shed, too.

    1. if you are anywhere within driving distance of Enid, I can send George out to hook it up..we had a 1000 sq ft building that was nothing but train sets…in N gauge. those 1/2 inch tall and 3 inch long trains!

    1. up in those rafters for the loft, I have nine pull-down spice racks..those will hold most of his tiny n-gauge train engines…I may never see him again after I am through outfitting that cave of his!
