I went over to the camp last night, so I could get an early start this morning on the siding.

Got up this morning to find a light dust of snow on my material. Yuk. It's hard to draw

pencil lines on snowy wood. It melted about an hour later.

 

I got the front and side wall done.

Fitting the boards around the rafter tails is very time consuming.

 

Thanks for looking.

Thanks. Yes, I know about the filling up quick thing. I'm making plans to pull some more logs out of the

bush this winter. Just in case... :smilewink:  :smilewink:

Looks GREAT Will, gotta love the way rough sawn lumber looks on a wall. I know that Elfe is sniffing around in ther just out of camera shot I guess.

This may be a first. Someone complaining about a snowfall because it makes it hard to draw pencil lines on wood.......

 

Not:

I have to walk uphill to school through two feet of the stuff. (both ways)

I have to shovel a 300 meter driveway.

I still have tomatoes on the vine.

My wife has to drive 85 kilometers tomorrow to be first in line for a shoe sale.

My snowmobile got stolen.

The ice castle roof leaks.

My balance sucks and I always end up on my arse.

 

Nope, you go with 'it makes it difficult to draw pencil lines on wood'. No wonder I log on nightly, never know what you might miss.

Looks fantastic! I love this type of construction... I grew up playing around and in a 100-150 year old barn... wood pegs at beam and post connections, wrought iron nails, rough sawn everything... You are pushing me to use wood on my shed sides, aren't you. As I said in another thread recently, peer pressure is a b#!$h.

Looking very nice--- I love working with wood, especially rough-cut. We use a lot of second cut slabs for siding on barns and sheds now, something we never saw before we moved up here. We don't have one, but several of the neighbours have sawmills and lumber is never a problem.

Despite the nasty weather today, I managed to finish the siding and

get some of the windows in. They still need to be trimmed out on the outside.

Thanks Doug.

Should be able to squeeze 25 in there, and still have room at the doors

to do a cart wheel.

Looks great will, what else do you have to do to finish? Are you going to have a loft or shelves for smaller LT's?

Thanks Brian. I moved the flooring material indoors to speed up the drying. I've got it

tarped, fan blowing at it at one end, and dehumidifier at other. I'll give that another week or so.

While I wait for that, I've got the gang plank to install, and the center wall panels to remove (as

shown in 3rd picture of 1st post). Shelves to be built after that.

I need some ideas, for lowering the gang plank. It should be powered, shouldn't it? The trailer winch

thing worked OK, but......
