So this morning, I needed to scrape the whole building once more to knock down any paint the pressure washer loosened. Unfortunately for me, this process started at 6:30 am. Brent was at work anyways, so I felt guilty laying around. It took about an hour and a half to scrape for the second time. With each scrape, I found my mind wandering to my shed budget and trying to figure out if we could just afford to get new siding on the whole thing so I wouldn't have to scrape. But I already knew the answer. Here's what it looks like scraped.
Not my idea of a good time. We know that this shed does not add much of any value to our house, because there is not a driveway to it. It is basically a glorified lawn/storage shed, so it just doesn't make sense to drop much money in it. It adds value to our day to day life though by giving us a place to work on the things that give us joy, so for that reason, it is almost priceless, except for the cost of this dang roof! i have sticker shock from the price of roofing materials! But our current garage is overflowing and we mostly can barely use it anymore. It is only good for losing supplies and small children in right now.
Today we will begin roofing and we are super excited about where this window is going to end up!!!
