We had to move all of the boxes and totes that were stored in the shed before we could move the furniture around. All of that went stacked in the yard around the shed door. Of course, we also had snow. Since it was cold it wasn't a soggy snow, but it did make things a little slick. They also very sweetly helped me get the insulation that was sitting in the shed up in the walls. This will make a big difference for me this winter. It will mean that I can actually use the heater to warm this area up with a heater. Once we got the big stuff re-arranged we started to bring the boxes and totes back into the shed.
After getting things settled, they left and I started to do some figuring. I had gotten a sink, counter top and cabinets from a demolition job. I wanted to put them in the shed, but I had to figure out if they would fit with everything else that was already there.
I was able to fit it in, but I had to move things around a little bit more, but it did work. I carried the counter top and sink to the house, and my brother brought the cabinets to the house. We literally just set the counter top on top of the cabinet. I don't have water hooked up to the sink, nor do I have drain hook-up. However, since I am only rinsing with soapy vinegar water, it will be fine to collect the grey water in a bucket under my sink drain pipe. Also I am using a bucket with a spigot inserted in the side for water for washing and neutralizing any lye left on the lye water dishes. Since I don't wash my dishes until after the soap has saponified for ease of work ( I will do these in the house) so I don't have to do a ton of dishes in this space with no running water. I am not real thrilled with the idea of carrying hot water out of my house every time I soap, but it is not the end of the world.

change as I work in the space
