And so begins the final step in this shed construction: Trim

Here most of the pieces, which are various lengths of 3" wide pine, 3/4" wide, are given a coat of green paint.

Looking good and never to much storage!

Something hit me with the windows though. Couldn't someone just break a window and get in? Maybe add a bar or cover that with the bars you have to block or close it off, out of site, out of mind you know.

But then again if your on site all the time as you plan on, no biggie.

-The window on the north side (Only one really) has two steel bars behind it. Too small a space to craw through
The door window is just too small.

And then there are other factors
Kentucky-
Not as many (Almost none) thefts here
and
the place is so remote and so rural its practically like our "Outback"
and has so few visitors. Maybe a dozen in 4 years?? if that many...
And on top of all that I claimed it for the Kingdom of God, and prayed a prayer of the blood of Jesus all around it.
I think I am safe there.

The shed is now trimmed and graveled in.

It only lacks a gutter board metal cover, some gutters, and some pieces of angle to wrap around the outer edges of the Soffit.

I'll get to that in a bit, but it is effectively finished and functioning as it was intended to

Total Cost: $2,937   Total hours: 86.7

So 2 weeks of work and about the same cost as a cheapo shed. I call that a win.

Same cost, yes

But apples for apples

Cheapo does not have a service door
Cheapo has 6.5 or 7 foot high walls vs my 8 ft.
Cheapo does not have a 6/12 pitch roof. more like 3 1/2 pitch
Cheapo does not have roof overhang, mine has 12" overhangs
Cheapo does not have a loft
Cheapo does not have shelving
Cheapo floor structure is only 1/3 as thick as mine
Cheapo does not have a metal roof
Cheapo does not have the robust flooring sub structure mine has
Cheapo is nailed/stapled together, mine uses only screws
Cheapo has a flimsy door lock system, mine is like a vault
Cheapo is typically T-111 or plastic, mine has the 50 year smart panel

So if all one needs is to get out of the weather, then a Lowes cheapo will get it done for a lot less work. But if you desire something that will live in your landscape setting for the rest of your life, then custom building your own or having it done is your answer. If I hired a builder to build mine to this spec, I already know the cost of materials is around $2,800, adding in labor, I think I'd be north of $4,000 pretty easy.

You know, I wish at least one guy on this forum would do something half a__ed so I could type something different,
... but seriously, looks as good as anyone here would expect.

Ever hear the phrase that starts something like, "Feed a man a fish and cure his hunger for a day, but..."
????
Applies here!
Live it and learn it!
Better yet, grab a youngin' and teach them to fish at the same time you're learnin' yourself
