    I had the week off so I got a bunch done. The BIG thing is the roof is DONE. It is not going to leak. There is still a long way to go, and I want to get it FINISHED so that there are not any loose threads that I need to come back to finish off later. I really NEED this shed because my old one if rotting and beyond repair. It will last 1-2 more years. I still NEED one more after this one. The next shed will be 12x20. This one is 10x20. After that I WANT another small 8x10 for chickens, or ducks and maybe a rabbit or two.

    I will make this shed red with off white trim with blue shutters and door. The only thing that will be left for later is decor. I will make fancy frilly stuff and a bunch of nice corbels. All the frilly stuff will have the three main colors.

    I am having fun watching this come together.

    Looking good, Leo. Are you planning on adding anything around the bottom to keep critters out?

    Coming together nicely, Leo. You've got a nice piece of property there, too. And I get tired just thinking about stacking all that firewood.

    WOW! That is a lifetime supply of firewood that you have there.

    WOW! #2 That is quite an undertaking. It looks great. However, my back is aching just thinking about doing it. But, darn it, it sure looks like fun!

    Enjoy,

    I burn 1-1/2 to 2 cords a year.

    I buy it green for $200 per cord and season it for 2 years, rotating the stock.

    I normally have about 6 cords on hand, but I now have 8-9 cords because I cut some trees to make way for solar and my neighbor is clearing a lot and gave me some more.

    Burning firewood in Winter is one of the reasons I love living in New England.

    Jim yes, huge undertaking, and yes my back IS aching.
