She-Shed Update: Adding Personality
Time just seems to keep going faster and faster, doesn't it? This past month has seen slow progress on the shed as we've dealt with inclement weather and minor setbacks. Thankfully we've learned along the way, and progress continues.

|Putting in the accent front siding.|
Because this building was once a one-car garage, there had been a garage door to the front at some point. That had been replaced with plywood boards long before we moved in. We covered those boards (and replaced damaged ones) with housing plastic and then added an accent, vertical siding. It took a few tries to get this part just right. The "measure twice, cut once" advice was great, until Prince Charming realized he'd measured the wrong side. But with some creativity, and a new piece of siding, we were able to get it fixed. Unless you're really looking close, the average passerby won't even notice.

Our spring break flew past, but I'm amazed at what we've been able to accomplish. Trim pieces have been created, painted, and put in place, though there are still more to go. The AC/Heating unit is installed, a new patio is on the back side, and the front is looking beautiful.
Next goals: finish getting the trim in place and painted, plan out and run the wiring, and get work done on the interior.
What do you think of our project so far?
