The Shed (May 1998)
With all kinds of stuff to store and no place to store it, a shed was the logical choice. Here was the process from start to finish. The plans were composed from a couple different designs and slight modification were made to incorporate the garage door in place of a standard swing out doors.
|All things start with a good foundation. The ground was leveled and concrete blocks were laid. The frame was squared and the treated plywood was applied on top.|
|The framing begins to take shape.|
|The wall framing is complete and the door headers are in place.|
|Next was the wall sheeting.|
|The 2"x10" braces support the walls, roof, and loft that will be added later in the project.|
|The roof begins to take shape.|
|Each truss was hand cut and placed 24"OC.|
|The remainder of the sheeting is in place.|
|The 8" gable was added in the front and back...|
|..and the roof sheeting was applied.|
|The garage door was a change from the original plans which had the traditional swing out doors.|
|With the singles in place, now
time for the siding.
A loft added additional storage with the 8-12 roof pitch.
|The soffits were first, then the outside edge channel and starter strip.|
|Once the J-channel was in place the siding went quick.|
|The finished front...|
|The finished side.
A 20 amp electrical service panel was added to proved lighting and electrical outlets.
|With painted trim and doors, the job is complete.|
