    I can tell you that my tired old bones do not like to do this anymore.

    Right now I think it looks a little dis-proportionate.

    With 7' high walls and 10' wide it may be tall and narrow.

    I think the next one will be 12' wide with 6.5' walls.

    I just got 2 Anderson thermal replacement windows 19" x 22" for free.

    I was going to do Vinyl but decided to do the vertical imitation panels.
    I have used that on my old shed and my firewood storage shed and they hold up well.

    At first I was thinking on matching the house after the house is sided, but is seems everyone does that.
    Besides, this is Starlight Village, not just some old shed.
    With the sliding barn door and the village look I am after, I want this to be distinguished separately from the house.

    Though I don't really want to be painting, these little buildings will be small enough to maintain.
    I will use some Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams.
    I an thinking something reddish with a creme or yellowish trim.
    Maybe Black or Dark Green Shutters.

    Wow! I got tired just imagining the amount of work. That is some yard. This will be great to follow along.

    I know I have not updated for a while.

    The storybook shed is progressing, though slower than I would like.

    I thought I have more progress pics but I cannot find them.

    I am really wanting to do all the frilly stuff too, but that may need to wait a while.

    What I need to do is finish the roof and close it in so it will be functional.

    I am designing my own sliding door hardware just because the commercial stuff is sooo expensive. I will be using 3" rubber wheels and the now Oak I just had cut. Even though it is green it will work just fine.
