Tackling the Shed: Week 4

February 26, 2012

This weekend we continued to wrap up work on the garage and shed.

Even though we replaced all the siding, we kept the original roof structure.  The rafter tails and the exposed underside of the roof needed to be scraped and sanded before we could paint.  We also had to install new diagonal soffits between each rafter.  The picture below shows the rafter tails before we did any work, and after they were sanded and primed.

Alex finished installing the new elongated rafter tails under the overhanging roof.   The final structure looks pretty good and now it just needs paint.  We also need to install some corner moulding, various bits of trim, and we need to buy a 12 ft long x 6in x 2in piece of lumber for the final roof rafter.  The original rafter is too short; it ends at the beginning of the overhang.

    I can’t believe its the same shed from when you moved in. Then again about 80% of it is new.
