Airstream shed lifted onto UpGarden roof

Airstream shed lifted onto UpGarden roof

Today we had the crane delivering supplies also lift a 1962 Aistream – the garden’s future tool shed – onto the roof of the UpGarden. The airstream was too tall to fit through the garage’s low clearance, so we had to find another way. Kudos to the UpGarden volunteers who went all the way to the Kitsap Penninsula to bring it back.
