Put the west doors on over the last couple of days:  HPIM1359.JPG

 

The new little "scaffold" came in handy, gives me more room to work:  HPIM1358.JPG

 

I'll put the other piece above & work on the east end in a few days!  ~~  Lowell

Looks real nice, Lowell! I've thought about one of those little 'scaffold's' a couple times.

I picked this one up for $69.99 on sale at Menards a month or so ago, first time I've used it so far.  I do need to make a tool shelf ofr one corner up top, it just has a couple small bags.  ~~  Lowell

Spent the day at the farm today, clearing the spot for the new shade:  HPIM3255.JPG

 

The old shed moved OK, but the stump took some digging & cutting:  HPIM3257.JPG  HPIM3256.JPG

 

Cheif & Dottie had to check out the area:  HPIM3261.JPG  or maybe they were waiting for dinner, pork loin & sliced tators, along with sliced mators;  HPIM3259.JPG

 

After dinner I felled some of the dying walnut trees & stacked them to cut up later:  HPIM3262.JPG

Set up the sills & legs today and anchored them down.  HPIM3263.JPG I tried to put on the bows, but will need the loader for that!

 

After noon I cut up the Walnut & brought it home to the stack along the back fence.  HPIM3264.JPG  ~~  Lowell

Sure is a lot of work to accomplish what I see in the pics!  It will look great when you're done, Lowell! That walnut is some beautiful wood!

Set up the bows today:  HPIM3265.JPG  HPIM3266.JPG  From the two 4 x 4 posts in the middle to the right side will be enclosed on both ends for some storage area & shelter.  The right sidewall will be covered from the ground up also.  I'm not happy with the height, so I'll probably go back out & cut a foot off each leg.  I'll waste some time, but i'll always regret it if I don't!

Looks good as is! How tall is it? A little upper area will help with summer temps!

It's close to 10' at the peak, legs are 6' & left side is setting on 8" concrete blocks to get it close to level (L to R).  The middle 4 x 4's are 10' & should be set deeper anyway.  Not really a big deal to cut it down, just time consuming!  ~~  Lowell

Finished the east end of the lean-to yesterday with a 4' door:  HPIM1369.JPG  HPIM1370.JPG  

 

This gets the Snowco trailer inside & storage for trailer sides & some stuff I don't use often.  HPIM1371.JPG

 

Back to the farm tomorrow to work on the shade.   HPIM1367.JPG

Lifted the bows with the 790 loader this morning, cut a foot off the legs & reset the legs.  Added the braces, pulled the middle posts & set them one foot deeper.  Then put the treated base boards & nailers on both ends, didn't have the lumber for the center nailers, they're cut & ready now.   HPIM3267.JPG

 

Hope to get the metal on in a few days!

Update on the farm shade:  Last week I put the sheet metal on, enclosing the NE 6' of the shade for a place to put chairs, grill, trash can, etc.  HPIM3268.JPG  HPIM3269.JPG  HPIM3270.JPG  

 

The reason for the two-tone is that I used "cover sheets", a lot cheaper than first run metal & the supplier didn't have enough of the cover sheets in the darker green.

 

Today, I braved the 25* temps & went out to put the trim on to finish the project.  HPIM3274.JPG

 

The 5' landscape timbers inside will be the floor joists when I get the old shed torn down to use the roof sheathing for flooring in the enclosed part of the shade.
