Project Finished

The out building construction project is complete!


Thank you again to Tina and Patrick for the help on Saturday. Without their hard work--it would not yet be complete.

I cannot believe how hard it was to get it done and finish all of the small details--like the shutters next to the window. Even getting the locks aligned was no fun--nor driving screws into blind places.

It still requires painting--note all of the bare wood trim, but that will wait until we return from Florida. Hopefully the wood boring insects will not eat it by then.

Even the lock on the door was problematic. I think I placed it a bit too high and I had to put a top in place to keep the clasp from breaking the window when the left door flings open.

Although it is not yet occupied, it is ready for the overflow form the garage to make room for the new highlander, a/k/a/ Cleo.

I still need a ramp to get the tractor into the building, but that should not be too difficult.

The roof was a lot of fun. As many of you know, I installed the roof system on Sunday between rainstorms. I hate working on roofs, but I overcame my irrational fear of sliding off a roof and got the job done. I just had to put on my big boy pants and do it!

I wonder what the next DIY project will be?
