Today I spent about 6 hours finishing up my shed. Well finishing the construction of the shed. I completed the roof bolted it to the rest of the shed and then built the doors and attached the lock.

I have moved all my equipment into the shed and all that’s left in this project is to paint it for weather protection.

Looking good! I’d recommend roofing it – tar paper, shingles, the whole bit. That stuff is real cheap enough that you could just rip it off when you move and re-roof at your new location…..

Congratulations on finishing! Nice job.

Although, as with any shop project are we ever really “finished” ;)
I can picture you putting up some wood cladding, maybe running an electrical outlet, installing some shingles.

Btw, how will you tackle the seam in the middle of the roof?

If you look really close I made the taller roof lip over the shorter roof, to stop any rain from dripping inside a crack.

I already have a ton of ideas for adding more to the shed, like you said it’s never really finished. But keep posted for all the small changes I do to it along the way.

It looks like it will serve your needs very well. Congratulations. Now, if I could just get myself going on my on shed we’ll both be in good shape.

Thanks for posting this blog. I’m considering building a shed of my own so this was helpful to see. How is it holding up after nearly a year?
