New freezer ordeal

We have this storage room off of the den.  It's about 7 x 12 feet.  
It's crammed full of canning supplies, books, sewing stuff, and much more.
The two pigs will soon be butchered, so we had to buy another freezer.
I measured the door opening, and had it all figured out to take advantage of every inch of space.
But things did not go as planned----do they ever=)!
When DH moved the gun safe, we discovered a pipe that we had forgotten about.
The new freezer would fit between the tall pipe and the older freezer, but there is a small white pipe that sticks up, by DH's left hand.  The only other arrangement for the room would mean pulling everything out and rearranging the shelving units---ugh!!!!
Then we put our heads together.  He came up with the idea to chisel the concrete out from around the pipe, to get the cap as low as possible.  I came  up with the idea to put a board around it, with a hole in the board for the pipe, and then adjust the other legs to level it.  (see the board with the hole in it?)
The two ideas combined worked!  Not only was I thrilled to get the freezer in the spot that was originally planned, I was even more thrilled not to spend a day emptying out that room!!
Even Charlie the rooster was relieved!, not really, just thought it was a good picture=).
