Life’s Tuff. at least this summer sure has been. The endless apps, scarce interviews, & non-existent call backs have more than drained my strength, resolve, & will to keep on keepin’ on. However, today I ran across job opportunity that few would find exciting, but intrigued me very much. That’s right……..
Tuff shed, baby. Now, not everyone might seem so thrilled about blogging about tuff sheds. I mean, what’s so special? But me, I’m a strange fellow. Let me explain…
For some reason I have always wanted a tuff shed. Seriously, since I was a wee lad my father would always take me to the hardware store and I was insistent that I could look inside of the tuff sheds. They seemed like the perfect little playhouse for a guy my size. I think it all harps back to my favorite video game when I was growing up – no,
this game had no guns, no lightsabers, no battle axes grinding into the enemy. Rather, it was a farm simulator. that’s right. Farm. Simulator.
(I told you I’m a strange fellow) The name of the game was Harvest Moon, and literally all you did was water plants, pull weeds, crush rocks, harvest, and of course raise a variety of livestock. Most kids wouldn’t take to this mundane type of game, would they? Well, I for one loved it with all my heart. And of course in this game you had a tool shed, and one of the best parts was the joy of filling it with upgraded hoes, axes, milkers, brushes and other farm equipment ( I believe the biggest achievements you could gain were the Cheese and Mayonnaise machine.)
Now, what is this little digression down memory lane all about? it’s about imagination. When I was young I imaged my farm to be a real place somewhere, and the virtual toolshed was a Tuff shed in my mind. The thing about Tuffshed that is really useful is just how damn versatile the things are. Sure, one thinks that you’d just store your tools or equipment in one. Pretty simple, basic application. But that’s just scratching the surface.
I have found one of the most unique uses for these little sheds has been to help give people housing. It’s no secret that the economy is in a a ravished state- I may be complaining that I have yet to find meaningful employment, but I am a lucky one. I have my parents supporting me and doors are still open. But for many times are much, much more meager. Many in California and other states are finding themselves living in tent cities, or Hoovertowns as they were called in the 1st Great Depression (notice how i said ’1st’.) However, others have utilized Tuff sheds to improve their situation and put something a bit more robust between them and the elements.
there are several resources available to see how people are making the best and using T.S to their advantage. In fact, Tuff shed could easily use this hard economic time to promote themselves in terms of helping those whose fortunes have fallen on tough times. there are several resources available to those who are looking to change their situation:
Tuff shed has the potential to be a lifesaver for many, many people & I find the solution to not only be unique, but philanthropic as well.
