Maynard, just pee in the channel & you'll get in there. But be sure to take a big cup of coffee with you so you can get back out after the first pee freezes. :bigrofl:


Daniel, Daniel, Daniel :bigrofl:

Might try Irish Coffee... it'll make the job that much faster.

I got my shed open today. I used two methods to make the doors clear. First, I removed all the hinge screws to get the doors off. Then, I cut about 3/4" off the bottom of the doors. After that, I pried up the pavers and dug them out a little. Now the doors both clear. When things thaw out I will probably need to make some adjustments to the pavers. Thanks for all the advice everyone.

That's great Todd! Glad you finally got in! I know that would drive me crazy, even if I had NO REASON at all to get in there, just not being able to would make me WANT to that much more LOL!

What I would do now is put a rubber strip on the bottom of the doors....it seals the gap and is flexible enough if the pavers move a bit

One of the reasons why I did not cut more off of the doors, so that there would not be a gap. Good idea though.

Congats, I was afraid you were gonna have to go down & borrow the Jaws of Life from your local Fire Dept. :D

Glad you got in... As Caseguy said, It'd drive me nuts even if I didn't need in there.
