 Here are some shots of the "closing-in" process. Still got some work to do but it should be all tight for winter :)

Fantastic!

I helped my brother move a shed that was one hundred years old.  It was frail but sound.  My brother restored it at a new location, for new owners.  My mothers house is pushing a hundred and fifty years of age (New Hampshire ,USA).  That longevity has really stuck with me over the years.

I view modern construction with respect.  I also wonder if the modern stick built, para-lam and OSB house will last a century? Your shed could well be in service for a hundred years.  Congratulations and the future thanks you!

Thanks for the post aakins. When I get to retire and be able to spend more time on our land our plan is to buy the mill and build Jack's shed for our first
project and then a timber frame home. At first we planned a log home but after seeing a timber frame that my friend sawed most of the wood for we
fell in love with timber framing.
 

 

Right now I am reading everything that I can get my hands on about timber framing and soon will start buying the tools.
PS. I love Board and Batten siding!

Thanks Bill & John! I've had fun working on it. As far as the outside finish goes, I went with a cedar shaded semi-transparent from Sikkens. Couldn't be happier with it. ;D

All the best,
Andy
