Anyone who has owned property and a home knows that sooner or later you need to choose a place to store materials and equipment, and if you delay the choice, the materials and equipment will choose a place of their own.
It’s with this in mind that I consider the past 12 or 13 years that I have lived in this home and I consider that if I were to do it all again I would build a “Stockpile Enclosure” or a ‘Materials Store’.
I’m not entirely certain what it’s called but it’s metal or timber fencing, about 6 foot tall and about 5 meters x 5 meters with a double or single door gate. It’s surround by shrubbery or granadilla or scented vines, and its used to store all the things you collect but don’t plan to use immediately.
So for example when moved into this property there were garden beds everywhere surrounded by large rocks and boulders, I foolishly move the rocks and boulders off the property, however looking back I should have stored them in a huge pile alongside the ‘Stockpile Enclosure’ and used them to build something.
I could easily cite a number of other examples of piles of hardwood timber and corrugated sheeting which would find a temporary home in the ‘Stockpile Enclosure’.
