Woodshed Update

Hello and thanks for stopping by! It has been awhile since I updated you all on our DIY woodshed build project. If you are new here you can get caught up on this – our first building project – hereherehere and here.

We left off just before adding the roof panels last fall:

We got a roof on it shortly after our last post, and made some good progress on getting it filled. We love the clear panels – they keep the wood nice and dry while still allowing plenty of  light to shine in. Where the roof is so large, we felt that going clear would also blend in better with the landscape. No regrets!

We put up the tarp “curtains” using conduit pipes and shower curtain hangers. These worked great for a couple of months, and then a mighty windstorm came along and they fell down. The pipes came loose from the central connector.

We took them down for now, and we are trying to decide if we really need them. The generous roof overhang protects the wood from rain and snow (unless it is coming in sideways), and we use the wood up from front to back, so we may just leave the front open for better airflow.

It gets dark here pretty early these days, so we have added another feature – lights! This is a strand that used to run from the back door of the cabin to the little shed. Happy to find another use for them!

So now the only thing that this woodshed needs is a set of 3 stairs in the middle section and it will be complete! We will work on that when the weather warms up a bit. In the meantime, this mostly recycled woodshed is working out just fine for us!
