The Old Depot Project is an ongoing project I started in 2014 when I rescued an old train depot from Canton, NC. Now it’s become an ongoing restoration and garden project of a 100 year old locomotive sand house. Projects include raised cedar beds, a picket fence, pea gravel installation and more. Currently we are making the old train depot a chicken coop and potting shed combination. Boo thinks it’s a playhouse which works too.

For the garden project we had to level a sloped area of the yard in order to build a picket fence and raised garden beds. Here’s the step-by-step tutorials on how we did it:
I have a new love of gardening. Here are the things I’ve learned along the way!
