Storage Building Progress

Quick recap: I am building a small storage building for the back yard. As of last weekend, the footer blocks were set and ready to receive posts. Then I had to wait....

Finally! The wood arrived Monday afternoon.

I suppose we were the last delivery of the day since ours was the last order on the flatbed. I made room in the side yard for the materials, but with the longest dimension being 16' and the width of the side yard being 15', there wasn’t enough room for everything.

We had to move the longest pieces by hand and since they were bundled with some shorter pieces, we had to move those by hand too.

We finished the day with a couple of stacks of wood and the expectation for a hard day of labor tomorrow.

We got a late start on New Year’s Eve, but with a little supervision, we were able to accomplish a few things.

We didn’t accomplish much since we had to make a run to use our vision benefits before the year ended. We managed to get prescription Ray Bans for $125! Even with the disruption, I was able to get the posts set and the support timbers in place.

Yesterday (Happy New Year!), I framed the floor.

Storms would be rolling in that evening, so I had to finish the floor so we would have a dry place to stack the materials. I also managed to frame up both of the side walls. I didn’t have time to get photos before we stacked everything and covered it. The lumber holding the sheeting in place is all treated. This picture was taken this morning. I found a little ponding, but no leaks. It looks like this should keep it dry until the rain clears out tomorrow.

I guess today is a rest day. There’s some work that could be done in the garage, so maybe that’s where I’ll spend my afternoon....
