Tinkering Away

>> Monday, June 7, 2010

I've been gradually tinkering away at the garden shed. A few tasks are underway that are necessary before the next big step for the outside - painting! I've been busy sealing up the cracks around all the openings with caulk. I think I'm just over halfway done with the caulking on the outside. The caulking around the big windows on the east and west sides is now finished as well as the front right window but the other windows and the trim around the windows is still in progress.

Cold Frame: Automatic Opener ArmThe caulk is important to maintain the garden shed's temperature in the winter but right now is turning it into a hot house. I need to get an automatic vent opener I can use to open the vent window in the back of the shed.


Once I get the caulking complete (which should only be a few more work hours) I can begin painting the outside. I can't wait to get the outside all finished up. One of these days I might get to use my greenhouse garden shed!

I think your shed is wonderful -- I think I could live in it. :)

Very nice. It should be wonderful for the winter plants.
Yes, you should have an automatic opener for the venting.

I can't wait to see the complete look of the shed. Though it's looking bad now. It is really a joy and fun building one's own green house.

OOps! I made a mistake in my previous post. It would be "It's not looking bad, rather very inviting"

It looks fantastic! You've done an outstanding job. Yes, I think you could actually live in it! Would be a fun kid's playhouse!

Dave, It has been a while since I saw your shed/greenhouse in progress, and it looks fabulous. I remember when it was just a stack of salvaged windows! You've done a beautiful job.
