No place to store stuff is a good thing. Remember that storage shed on my lot at the Saguaro SKP park in Benson. Soon it will be no more. It didn't blow over in some recent wind -- or burn in the fires that are burning up large areas of Arizona.
During my last stay at the SKP park in March, I had put my name on the "wish lists" for some bare lots. After a phone call last week and after money exchanges hands, my interest in lot 63 will be gone and lot 25 will be my space at the Benson SKP park. Almost directly across the street from lot 63, it doesn't have the view, but it is a bare lot without a storage shed. Great.
It was in February of 2010 when I moved to lot 63 with the views of the Dragoons with beautiful and colorful sunrises and sunsets. However, lot 63 also had a storage shed. I really didn't want the storage shed, but it came with the view. Most of the residents in the park were very happy for me that I now had a storage shed. Huh. I had hoped that the occasional strong winds would blow it over. Wasn't going to happen. It was built too well and anchored to a concrete foundation.
Storage is for things that are not needed. If I need the item, it will travel with me. There is another downside to having an interest in a lot at the park. Maintenance is the lot lease holder's responsibility. There are times where the wind is merciless and removes shingles from the storage shed roof. Arizona summer heat is not kind to wood and paint. Eventually, the shed will require maintenance. The truth is I don't own storage shed. The storage shed owns me.
Soon there will be no storage shed. Life is good.
