    Well for the most part I am now done. Some fine tuning but that's it. Wife want me to put some trim on the front at the roof. I still need to put an ice breaker across the roof so big chunks of ice don't fall on it and the same on the shed and I need to wrap it. Next year I will put vinyl siding on it and trim it maybe stain the inside so it doesn't rot I have lot's of old stain lying around.

    For ice breaker I was thinking of using 1/2 inch gray electrical conduit as it's the right shade and only 6 bucks for 10 ft pieces I will need 5.

    Now I have to finish loading it with wood hopefully by the end of the week.

    I know your wood is dry but I'm surprised you have it sitting on the ground. I thought you would have had it sitting on skids just to allow some air flow underneath.

    When I started building this I actually had most of the lumber that I had scavenged over the years. All the 2X4's and all the chip board as well as 3 of the 4x4 posts. The tin was left over from when I did the house roof, I had bought some extra just in case (Doing the garage roof next year last roof to do and last roof to do for life). I even reused the screw I had from when I dismantled my old deck. I also got the gravel for free.

    The shed still cost a pretty penny to build.

    So I spent:

    Need some longer 3 inch screws $20.00
    12' 4X4's (4) $80.00
    8' 4X4's (3) $30.00
    Roofing screws 2 in $20.00
    4x4 brackets for base $20.00
    Wrap $50.00

    Still need 10' Conduit (8) $40 (I need some in a few other spots)
    3 inch roof screws $20.00

    Even later I need.
    Vinyl Siding approx $200.00

    So total cost $440.00

    I have left wood on the ground for 3 years with very little rot. The ground will pretty much stay dry so I'm not worried. Although I did think about putting some pallets but decide not to.

    Looks good GW...finished my own last week. I'm still not sure of what to use for the door. I have a doubled up tarp that covers the entrance with a 2x4 to weight it down. Means I have to roll it up every time I use it. PIA but seem to be the only solution.

    Nice that your finishing it off, not only keeps the neighbourhood looking nice but keeps the wife happy.

    I have two driveways. I am allowing her to park in my driveway, as I need to have room to pull up with the atv and trailer to unload the wood. I probably could have told her to park at the neighbours or on the side of the road, but I'm a nice hland allowed her to park on my driveway. ��
