Thrifting Thursday (shed construction #4)

The shed is coming along, Joe's been working hard on the roof and it's almost done (he just needs to trim off the extra tar paper).



`

We decided to put a red metal roof on the shed to match our red metal porch roof...



`

I really like how it turned out!

`



`

And I'm especially pleased that Joe didn't kill himself sliding off the slippery metal as he installed it! It was kind of scary up there a few times!

I trimmed out the corners the other day using 1x4's, and then caulked all the joints, wood puttied the various nail holes in the siding and sanded the rough spots... With any luck I'll get it primed later today.



`



We still have a long ways to go, but it's getting there... and we should have a month or so before I have to worry about snow.

Paint and the "barn" doors are next... that will be the fun part... followed by installing the plexiglass below the peak in the front and back. It's so fun to watch our old recycled shed coming back together again!
