After Redditor mysacrificee and his father installed a koi pond beside their backyard shed, the old stucco structure looked like an eyesore compared to the elegant water feature.
So, when summer rolled around this year, they took their tools to the little building. After countless hours of work, you won't recognize the shed…and you might be inspired to get out and build one yourself!
Since the shed was actually entirely stable, all they wanted to do was replace the ugly stucco exterior.
They ripped it all off over a few days.
From there, they took some measurements for the new siding.
While they waited on the siding, the family decided to make a little pergola next to the pond.
The hard work's paying off.
When mysacrificee found this old window at a friend's house, they added it to their upgrade plans!
Let there be (natural) light.
The siding came in and it was time to stain it.
The installation process went faster than anyone had anticipated!
Even with all the measuring, though, they ended up with extra wood…so they covered the pond's water filter with the leftovers.
I think it's safe to say we're all jealous…
