Project wagon into saddle box!

We have a list of projects to do living on only 5 acres you can imagine or maybe you can’t, the work load is never-ending. We are in no way complaining though, we are living our dream something some people never experience their whole lives. So blessed.

Well the old red Pajero is no longer road worthy & I cannot afford a shed or the material to build a shed to store all the saddle gear in so here goes. Having looked up an abundance of how to sites I have not found one that someone has used an old vehicle as storage in a decorative non tacky trashy way, are we the only fruit loop that come up with these ideas. My friends all know we are crazy so here goes. We will post a picture of the finished product.

With my trusty tools we gather from the shed/entertaining area we approach the little red wagon thinking right we will strip the inside completely so we have a clean canvas to work on! Ha 3hrs later with the removal of only passenger seat & spare tire,  4 broken socket wrenches, much huffing & puffing, I’m done………

For crying out loud who does this. I know I have a goat enclosure to finish, horse night yards to build, timber for winter & felled trees to clean up, fencing to fix, horses to ride, greenhouse to set up, chook pen to build, round yard & arena to set up not to mention the mundane house work to do & that’s only a few of my projects.

Well rearranging saddle  gear to fit over seats & hang straps & gear off whatever rails I could find, upon exhaustion I decide a day will be chosen with angle grinder in hand to demolish all bolts & strip with vengeance. We’ll see A.

Land living for Living land. A woman armed with ancestral wisdom is an unstoppable force. Single Mum living the dream on 5 acres creating an oasis to share with friends and family. With very little money, no machinery it can be done, working in acres not hours. 10 years in the making; I have loved every minute through blood sweat and tears. There is much to celebrate on the way.
