My apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum. I probably should of just posted an update in
Currently I am in the process of expanding a small shed into a doable workshop, I decided to take a slight detour
I am wrapping things up, and just about have the exterior done. Some stormy weather has moved through so I have held off on painting until the humidity comes down some. Essentially, all that remains is that I paint and install the trim-work, re-install some drip edging, and a few pieces of door hardware. Locks and handles. Of course, I still have to install the lumber rack system and build a sheet goods storage bin also.
The weather hasn’t stopped me from making progress. I just shifted my focus to digging out around the lean-to and putting down some gravel. Also I put down some galvanized metal meshing to deter the critters . But I also did some general landscaping on the curb out front of the place. All in all, I have been putting in a lot of 12 hour days on this projectand , shall I say, I’m very frustrated its taken this long.
Had I known I would be four weeks on this detour, I would have held off and started what was to be phase two of my shop expansion. I have heard some say that it takes as long to build it small as big. I truly believe that now !
Completing phase two would have finally opened up my shop area . As things are,I’m still tripping over things,and doing the limbo to get from point a. to point b. in there. For those with space challenged areas, I’m sure you know what I mean.
Despite this ranterous post, I have done pretty well at remaining calm and positive. I have made mistakes and corrected them and tried to do as good a job as possible without rushing to a completion. So anyways, here is how things look so far.
The following pics are a few days old. They don’t show the the work I did today. I will try to wrap things up tomorrow and post updated pics then. I had to pull up the drip edge nails to redo the trim. So that is evident
And this is what I’m dealing with inside the shop.
The following picture shows a small shed to the front, that I will be tying into
So obviously I still have a ways to go. Ha ha ! Won’t really start on the inside until I have the tie-in completed.
Thanks for looking.
