This has been a very long project, which I'm glad is finally coming to fruition. Some things went to plan some didn't, but on the whole it looks exactly like what I envisioned.
I had a few odd requirements for this shed. It has to be removable, so I put it on pylons. I'm sure it will settle, but it can be jacked up and re leveled.
It was going to take a few weekends to put together, so each stage had to be structurally stable in weather and such.
I regret not putting a few more screws in the floor when I could have - oh well.
In the peak of summer the roof was very welcome. Working in the heat of the day was brutal.
I found a used door in a frame at habitat for humanity, it was a pretty perfect fit.
The roof really was where I learned the most. Doing it over, I would use the cheaper roll felt, it's just a shed after all. But I was giving these shingles so it made sense to use them, I underestimated how many I needed and their weight so I had to beef up the roof and the structure in general.
After the roof was done everything else seemed relatively simple.
Some siding and a lick or two of paint, a window and a ramp. Done (almost)
This year thanks to our neighbor Rick, we were lucky enough to get tickets to the Vasona Lake County Park, Festival of Lights But not just in the normal way, for the first time, the public were allowed to walk through, instead of be bumper to bumper in a car parade.
It was awesome, a couple hundred acres of lights.
Maddy loved it. Lots of flashing lights and even some animation.
And then ? Some random things, I had a little laugh at the tag-along tooth and brush.
