Finished ShedAnother view of the finished shed from a side angle. Eventually we will add some landscaping to soften the edges and foundation of the shed.
Front completeThe front sheathing is now complete, windows and small door have been trimmed out, etc. Next the gables will be done.
Finished ProductThe final step was to paint all of the trim dark brown, again to match the trim on our home. Here, you see a view of the finished shed!
Framing FinishedWe didn't pause to take any other photos-- this one shows where we stopped for the day when rain started falling. The front of the building will have a roll-up door and a window (being demonstrated by Cathy). We made good progress before the rain-- getting all the walls framed and trusses up and temporarily braced.
