"Don's THE Man!"

You may remember that we bought a new John Deere Tractor with a snowblower attachment.  It would fit in the garage but only on the "other side" of the car, which would mean we'd have to back out the car in order to get the tractor out to snowblow…..not the best solution, right?  :)

So…….we ordered an 8'x9'x12' Shelter Logic Hoop Style Shelter to house the tractor.  Don read the instructions for assembly and began putting the pieces together, calling me out to help move/hold things, "as needed".

Once the frame was set up, he was able to continue again without my help.

But I went out occasionally to take photos of his progress……

And yes, I was out there to hold the ladder steady, too (when not stepping back to take a photo).  ;)

Unfortunately, the written assembly instructions were not the best (to say the least!), because after assembling something, a few steps later, they'd have to be unassembled in order to complete the new step.  Finally, Don got to the point of attaching the tarp sections to the frame.

As you can see in the photo below, Don isn't smiling……..frustration had set in and he was done for the day.

The next day and after "redoing" some of the "previous steps", Don was finished!

Here he is backing our tractor into its new home.

It fits perfectly!  A job well done!  YEA DON!!!!!

Here is a side view of the structure.  It should be pretty easy to keep snow off of it, too, with the curved ribs and angles sides.  "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow……."  We're ready!  ;)
