    Funny you mention that...Mrs. RW has (wet) samples of the Rust and Mustard for me to test on the rear of the siding.

    Just trying to keep my fine arts education limber.

    When we painted our house in Arizona, I took a branch off the big palo verde in the front yard and had them color match it at the paint store. There was some hilarity involved with the paint guys.

    PPG 1000-1 Dust Bunny (satin finish) on the siding and trim to match the areas of our home that have siding and trim in the same color, which I painted in the Spring. Playing it safe until next Spring as the weather really cooperated this week. Starting on the inside this evening in terms of the potting counter, shelves and pegboard. Close tie with Navel Lint, but that color has apparently been discontinued...

    That looks great. Sets off the windows and gives it almost a facial expression(!)

    I went looking to see what color Navel Lint was. Thanks.

    Nice work, RW! A good back yard needs a good shed.

    You said yes, I hope. Fat little goats that jump on and over things.

    Feel free to adopt this little sh*t machine. He definitely jumps on/over things.

    Mike...I was told in no uncertain terms to “keep my stupid bike stuff” out of her way. As for sleeping arrangements, I’ve already test fit the loft and it works...bread is a always a given around here.

    Well, most of the planting pots have been cleaned and stored for the Winter and the pegboard is awaiting pegs and tools, so I started on the ramp foundation and had fun with a crude bit of joinery on the front posts. If the rain stops for a little bit, I should have the ramp foundation in this weekend and the decking completed soon thereafter. I’m working on a decking pattern using 2”x4”’s and 2”x6”’s that are leftover pieces from the shed foundation and other projects. My youngest now asked me if I’m planning the ramp to be able to support a combine.

    RW,
    The local union rep asked me if I knew you and I told him you were “upper mgmt”but still handy with tools so he’s going to let it slide this time. Looks great. None of my guys on the job would let me use anything other than a tape measure and then they had to make sure I didn’t cut my finger on the retract.

    Looks great! Any time I am around a discussion of decks, I hear someone say "Are you gonna do exposed deck screws or hide 'em?" Doesn't seem to be a right or a wrong answer.

    Combine seems like a pretty good idea to me. You never know when you might need some wheat. Corn is good too.

    Looking for ideas. I have a big space for a workshop/shed. It currently has a big Tuffshed that came with the house but it doesn't fit our needs. My SO is an artist and teaches art history at the local Community College. She also has a soap business that is doing well. I am considering a large workshop, maybe 600 square feet with rollup doors. She'll need 220V for the burner to make the lye and for a kiln. I'll have to air-condition at least one area for the soap to age. I'm considering a steel building shell and building it out as we go. Has anyone done a shed like this?

    I’ve used Morton for buildings like the one you’re talking about, even for a 0.25 acre indoor horse riding and stables. A lot of manufacturers such as Weaver Barns, also make garages, shops, etc.

    I have three artist friends who've built their studios with Morton and all have been 100% satisfied. Lots of space, easy to set up the way you want.

    My dad just bumped out a corner of his Morton building to better accommodate a new RV. It was a surprisingly seamless operation.

    I should finish this afternoon after a morning bike ride that I’m not interested in until the temp gets well above 22F...looks like a 10am start at this point. Nobody likes the guy who runs the drill and the saw at 8am on a Sunday either...first world problems I know. I patterned some 2x4’s and 2x6’s to break things up a bit and tried to avoid knots and imperfections as best I could, which in some cases, required me to break the “crown up” rule. The cuts will be used inside as shelving in between studs, etc. and the 2x4’s originally served as bracing when I built the foundation...all treated lumber. The final touch is that I have some old barn stone that’s going to be at the base of the ramp to ease the slope transition and dress things up a bit. Final edge cut photos will be provided of course.
