Window and Door Install

One of the more rewarding aspects of the potting shed project was using some reclaimed material. The three windows came from our neighbors across the street. They were redoing their sun patio, and Gary happened to see this and asked what they would do with the old windows. Since they were just going to trash them, we ended up stashing them away for about 3 or 4 years in hopes we could use them. We finally did.

The doors came from "rebuilders center". Not as cheap as the free windows but worthwhile.

Potting Shed Siding

To match the siding on my home, I added this dutch ship lap siding to the potting shed. It was fairly expensive but worth the character it provides. Also, so easy to cut and install with a finish nail gun.

Roof Rafters

Well, my last post confidently stated how easy framing the walls were. As for roof rafters, it was a completely different story. Not impossible but certainly challenging. Most likely due to having to build it while balancing on a ladder.

And that dormer... I think it took about 7 hours and many cuts. But I love a good challenge. It was worth it.
