Cladding the Shed

Charles, T, and I got a ton of work done on the shed today even though the weather refused to cooperate. I still have a lot to do, but the guys did the heavy labour of cladding the shed with full sheets of OSB, leaving me to fill in gaps and put in some more screws on everything. Charles is leaving me all his tools and T gave me a lesson in how to use a circular saw, so I can move ahead on my own, between typing spurts.

My to-do list for the next 10 days, weather and work permitting:

-fill in all the gaps in the OSB
-screw everything down
-add trim
-make a door (I can leave that for when Charles comes back, but I’ll see how much time I have)
-paint (preferably three coats)
-clean the inside

When Charles gets back, we’re hoping that SaskPower will have moved the hydro line so that we can get the other roof on. Then, it’ll be time for me to go to Quebec to visit my family and when I get back, I’ll have a week to pack and get ready to leave for Mexico.

  • You have turned that “free” building into something quite usable! Nice job!

  • Thanks! It did cost $350 to move it, but I couldn’t have framed a building like that for under $1,500!

  • Nice job! Hope it serves you well. Can’t beat the cost or the help from friends.
