Building a Storage Shed in the Butterfly Meadow
by
James Florek
Troop 316, Fremont

 

Jimmy completed his Eagle Scout project by building a 12' x 7' x 8' high utility shed which provides storage of garden tools and maintenance equipment used for restoration and monitoring by high school students at Tule Ponds. It helps to store the equipment for use not only at Tule Ponds but by other parts of the Tri City area.

Materials were purchased from Home Depot, Lowes, Dale, Orchard, Hulbertís, Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware, Pacific Supply and Alís Roofing.  Many thanks for the special assistance provided by Alís Roofing Supply of Newark who generously donated the roof and gave us a significant discount on the wall boards.  Additional funding was provided by Math Science Nucleus.

 

Jimmyís workers were the boys of Boy Scout Troop 316.  The foundation was the hardest part.  We spent 3 days building the foundation. It took a total of 15 work-days and 330 MH to complete.  We dodged the rains for 2 months to get the work done.
