So after I added a lean to on my pole pavilion I soon realized I didn’t want to give it up for its intended purpose. Which was firewood. So sitting under it one day last week with my MIL she suggested building a woodshed out behind it. I was like yeah. Great idea:bigthumb:
It’s only :gizmo: lol

Had to build something that tied into and also helped stabilize a tie wall I was building around back of pole building. Wanted to use all treated wood because of the carpenter bee problem we have in these parts. Kinda got an idea of the look I liked from a couple I googled on internet. Picked up lumber according to what I planned in my head that day.:laugh:

Had one sheet of metal roof left over from lean to. Ordered 6 more sheets from lumber yard. Supposed to be in today or tomorrow.
Went this morning in picked 5/4x6x10's for the wood stalls. Cut the 10's in half and used the level to plumb them up and create the air space between them at same time.

Joe, are the vertical boards 5/4 decking???
Yep. Thought about hardwood that I could get my FIL to saw on his Woodmizer. But then that would require a whole heck of a lot of his time, my time, and picking out logs from his pile. Plus it wouldn’t be treated. Easier and 10x faster to go just grab boards from yard.
5/4 decking was about the thickness I wanted albeit a 2x6x10 is dang near what 5/4x6x10 is. :laugh::gizmo:
I figure this is the last shed I’ll build in my lifetime on this property.

Didn’t hear from yard about roof so I decided to start something else that’s been bugging me for some years. Decided to finish the cobble stone curb from corner of garage out to pole building. A few years back I got probably a hundred cobble stones from an old steel mill demolition job. Plan on paving in next year or two all up in front of garage.
The walkway square corner wouldn’t match other curb so I made compass from a piece strip, a pencil, and a nail. Luckily I had two 4” concrete cutting discs for Makita.

Got the call that roof metal was in so I went and picked that up.
Grabbed a couple more bags of concrete mix to backfill and chock in cobble stones. Got that project done.
When my kid comes home from camping tomorrow i’ll get him to help handle roof sheets. Maybe get that done too.

Cut the two pork chops to finish paver fill ins and spread and swept some polymeric sand into all the cracks and crevices. Gently spritzed the dust off and soaked the sand. That stuff works great and is like an elastic cement when cured.
Also put back some of my iron trinkets i’ve collected off of demo jobs I’ve been on. :laugh:

Started to finish roof but got rained out last night. Finished it this morning.
If you get into a lot of metal work, this Malco shear attachment works pretty dang good. Mounts on a drill or 1/4” bit driver.
Now the filling it with wood labor begins.
