|Corner Trim on Garden Shed|
The other thing that I need to do very soon is seal up any gaps around door and window trim areas as well as the corners. I want to get it ready for painting soon but I still haven't decided what colors I would like to use so any suggestions are welcome!
The recent floods didn't hurt the shed any. Water did rise up and flow underneath the shed and came in one side then went out the other. I went inside while it was raining to see exactly what was happening and saw a steady water flow. The water cleared out fast because of good drainage and everything should be fine. It does bring to mind a couple other tasks that need done either this summer or in the fall.
- Implement a French drain on the west side of the shed.
- Grade the ground to create more of a slope to the drainage areas.
- Build a small "rain" wall from concrete blocks to redirect the water down the aforementioned slope.
