..... I have been noodling this all day!.....

 

I didn't know you like to go catch catfish with your hands !!!! :D

 

Great to re-use old stuff. People used to get on my dad about all the "junk" he collected, saved my butt more than once he has!

 

There is a local garage I dive by, they do a ot of auto painting. Tey have a big roll up door, but then they put in a wood frame with clear ribbed plastic roofing material. They are bale to let light in but stil have a door.

I like your idea of being able to move it away. Make it wide enough so you can put some eyebolts in and attach to walls to it won't blow away on ya, but easily removed.

Been busy helping Aaron with his addition on his outbuilding. It's 14' X 30'. Pipe frame. Have it near ready to put the roof on. Sides will be open!

So I haven't gotten much done on my building project!

Some progress today! Aaron didn't play hookey from work, so I got to work on my door today. Got it ready for the siding to go on!

Door part way open.

I 'toe-screwed' the boards together. So I added these straps to the inside to help keep things from coming apart.

Got the siding on the short wall & door! Stepped back to admire my handy work and DOH! I dropped the short wall's siding instead of keeping it to the line around the corner. SENIOR MOMENT!!!!!!

I'll see about fixing that tomorrow. But, it's closed in!

Now to fix that and clean the area out front before it gets nasty out! Paint will probably be next spring!
