She-Shed Update: Let There Be Light

 Readers, January went by so very fast! In that time, we worked quite a bit on the she-shed, when weather was on our side. So this will be mostly pictures, but here's our progress so far.

New, 3x4 foot windows have been installed on each side of the shed. 


Window on North side along with replaced siding.

Even the little ones got to help.

So much light!


We've roped visiting family into helping out too. Thanks, James!



Along with the addition of windows, there has been repair work to the north siding. This is where we had the most damage. We also have installed the new door to the front. This was a bigger project than first anticipated, and definitely a learning experience!

One of the things we learned was that the old plywood we hoped to use as sheathing wasn't going to work. So off it came.

Gary enjoyed helping measure the openings as new sheathing was put in.
Before installing the door, we had to check that it would fit properly in the opening we'd made.




It was late evening before the window was installed...
And late night before the door was completed.


Gary approves the finished door.

There is still quite a bit to do, but the difference between what it was and what it is now is amazing! The light from the windows opens up the space and brightens it so much. Plus, I love having a key to my space.

Next on the list: continue repairs to damaged siding, install insulation to the ceiling, install wiring to the ceiling for light fixtures, install lights, and drywall the ceiling. 

I so love how this project is turning out! I can't wait to continue sharing progress with you as we turn this old, one car garage into a beautiful office she-shed.
