Finally, Pictures of the Shed

Okay, I had a few requests from my mom & MIL to see what the New Shed looks like, so if you're not interested...just ignore this post.

Here is my trailer (I know, it looks trashy, but IT'S MINE). This is the start of framing for the floor joists. Our yard is very uneven, so this took a whole afternoon of digging, leveling, and backfilling. Also, we have a lot of clay in our soil, so the foundation is just sitting on top of concrete piers.





Here, the floor is finished, and the walls are being framed and paneled. The height of the trailer's roof is about 12 feet, so you can see how high the ceiling is inside the shed.



Here is the current "stage of development." The deckboards haven't been put down, and we need to put up a little more paint. The shed's inside floor dimensions are 10ft x 12ft. And the deck is 6ft x 6ft (by the steps) and 6ft x 10ft (by the driveway). That makes a polygon with dimensions (starting at the corner of shed/deck): 10ft x 6ft x 4ft x 6ft x 6ft x 12 ft. There is also a 2ft wide "alley" between the shed and the house (for storing waterhose, lawnmower, etc).


Here is another picture, from the front. We will (eventually) paint the "ceiling" of the deck. And, once we have some money to spend, we will put on the deck boards. From this angle, you can see the "alley." That's also where the water and drain pipes (for washer) and vent (for dryer) are installed. You can see our old shed in the back...yes, it's that small...and yes, we still have it up. R is keeping his 4-wheeler, dirt bikes, and gas cans in there.

Hey mon! lol we commented at the same time. Yeah, R "helped" build it, but my "biological" dad did most of the work. He's a self-proclaimed carpenter, and he's Great! And, dottie is Terrific! I couldn't ask for a better MIL, now if only we could convince her to move up here with us....
