I finished the rafters, roof sheeting and felt today.  It will still get some blown in rain, but at least itís under roof.  Tomorrow, depending on rain and other factors, I should get the metal on the roof and osb on one side.

I have built a door using a sheet of 3/4" plywood, and then putting a strip of wood or smartboard trim around the face of the ply, then putting soffit panel between the trim.  Could just cover the whole front of the ply with the soffit panel, then run smart trim around the perimeter. I use the hinges flat ways rather than on edge like a door made to put on your house.  Outswing would be good as well, but you need to use a piece of chain or strap to block the door from wind. Have a storage building combination dog house like that, let the door hang down below the edge of the floor to keep it from leaking. Just put weather strip between the floor and the door.

I was thinking of something like that.  I was planning to use plywood with foam insulation sandwiched inside and vinyl siding on the outside.  Wind today almost took my tar paper off, so I quickly put tin on the roof tonight.  I need to pick up 10 sheets of osb tomorrow to close it in.  Then I can run some electric before I insulate and put up osb on inside.

Almost all plywood is on the outside.  I managed to keep the plywood on the trailer this morning.  Yay me.  I did one wall of vinyl siding, because I was tired of working with plywood.  I have a lot of vinyl, but not all matching colors, so I will do the best I can to make it look good.  I bought all this vinyl in an auction over a year ago with the intention of using on a kiln.  May not work on it tomorrow, because I need to mill some walnut.

Progress has been a little slow the last week due to the nose injury and overtime at work, but Iíve gotten a little done the last few days.  Hope to get the siding done tomorrow.

Thinking about the floor in there.  Toying with the idea of linoleum or rubberized roofing.

Completely finished up siding today.  Then I built a door.  It is 1/2 ply on each side with a frame made from cypress.  Sandwiched inside is a piece of 2Ē closed cell foam.  Itís pretty heavy, but four 3.5Ē hinges handled it ok.  I think I will clad the outside with aluminum and then do like someone here did and creat a rubber seal around the hinge side.  Door is 45Ē wide.

it is always hard to know how to finish under a shed door.  we build a 4 x 8 chicken coop, and that area always was prone to swelling and rot.  might put an l flashing over it for now.

Yeah, Iím definitely going to make some sort of threshold to try and keep water out.  I might even put a flashing on the bottom outside of the door to keep water from blowing in.  I have a big roll of aluminum trim coil and a siding break.  I should be able to do something.

Does the door swing in or out?  If it swings out, put a piece of soffit panel over the outside and let it hang down so water can not soak the floor. Put siding below the door to protect the wood.  A rubber door seal would work if you put a piece of wood like a threshold to seal the air from flowing under the door.

The door does swing out. I will be installing stops with gaskets all the way around to seal the air.  I will make an aluminum threshold to keep water from rotting the sill and from running into the shed.  I will probably also build at least a small awning over the door to protect the top of the door.

Alas, no progress today.  Probably none tomorrow either.  Something about having to install a new water heater in the house tomorrow.

I got a lot of the wall insulation put in today.  I will finish the wall insulation tomorrow and then start on the ceiling.  I was going to use r11 in the ceiling, but they were out of it, so r19 it is.  I ran wires for some receptacles and lighting.  I didnít feel the need for a light switch, so I will use plain light sockets with pull strings.  I havenít decided what to use for the door latch/handle.  I need to be able to lock it.

Wax repels water, so consider a coating of paraffin wax on the outside and renew it every year or two.  Brie wax has color, if you want to get fancy.  Some stains have microcrystalline wax in them too.

Thanks Gene.  Thatís an option.
Today I got almost all of the ceiling insulation done and some of the ceiling paneling done.  I have to finish some framing in the gables to get all the insulation and paneling done.  Iím getting close to needing to run the electric line.  Iíll pick up the conduit and some more wire tomorrow.
