Shed Rehab

This shed is about 30 yrs old built about 6 inches out of level and sitting on rocks. The first project was to jack it up level and stabilize.

Raising a building on a slope is very dangerous due to gravity wanting to make the building run downhill. In leveling this building it moved down hill about 3 inches. With the building blocked up level I dug and formed a  footer.

Concrete poured with anchor bolts installed. Pressure treated 2×6 with a pony wall and OSB nailed to create a shear wall to keep the building stable.

A shed roof off the back. soon to be a garden tool shed. A new roof over the existing concrete slab. It replaced an old deteriorating roof. The rafter size was upgraded from 2×4 to 2×6.

The front gets a major face lift. The door was moved from the left side to the front .A new porch roof  and a facade to give  the building some character.

The treated posts are skinned in cedar. Hardi plank siding and SPF trim and ready for paint. Note the finished ceiling under porch roof.

New roof and painted.

Finished up with a little decorating .

So nice to have a warm dry place for projects
