Looks great! Good choice on the hardy board. Are you going to enclose the ends up top or maybe enclose them with plexiglass for natural light?

Early day so instead of working on the shed I did the only responsible thing to do... Worked on the jeep. Pulled the accelerator pump and found it cracked and that was my leak. Pulled a old one from another 2100 I have and installed it. Tightened it up with the 3 good screws and left the stripped one out. Started up runs good and no more leaks. Only problem is the one I swapped in apparently is to stiff and does not pump. Still runs fine so it will ride as is until the 360 goes in. Pretty day, partly clouded and 78 so drove around for a bit and hosed it off.

Here is a neat idea for light during the day.

Watch the last half of the video, the first half drags.

I'd use it here but it would freeze. If I put antifreeze in it I would have green light in the shop.

That's a pretty clever, inexpensive idea, but I don't think I'd personally do that particular method on anything but a chicken coop or another similiar type of outbuilding. It's kind of hokey, plus I can imagine that the bottle would have to be changed out from time to time. That looks like it would not be a fun job.

I'd buy the real McCoy...

...and be done with it.

My understanding is the bottles lasts years, it is the caps that you have to watch. I'm told that if you coat them so the sun does not reach the cap they last years also.

Where is the flashing between the old roof and the new siding?

It may be in place but the siding it looks like it is right on the asphalt shingles.

Edit: nevermind, I saw the flashing in an earlier photo.



It will look like this in a few years without more space between the siding and roof.

Flashing is there and the hardy board has about 3/4 between it and the flashing.

The picture is a little deceptive as well. The shingles are cut back about a inch off the wall. I am offically tired of the project as well....

3/4" should be enough since the intersection is under the eave, and yes, the angle of the picture makes the siding look like it is on or behind the shingles.

Great job

BTW, it is time to germinate seeds
