Storage Shed Clean UP and Roof?

Remember this?

All this stuff is what I started clearing away this morning.

(The chickens are there because that is where I throw the scratch. Morgan is there because the chickens are there.)

Today I got smart and rummaged around in the garage and found a dolly to help me move the heavy things and the car repair stuff.

Lots of things went to the Goodwill pile and other stuff to the dump pile. Not much made it back inside the shed. There were things that had been buried in the shed for ten years. Didn't even know they were there... like a lawn mower and large tubs of laundry detergent. Who knew?

I was having such a good time getting rid of things that I just kept working and I didn't even stop for a rest or something to eat or drink. (I know... very bad.)

I was having a great time! Strange how much fun it can be putting things I actually want back in the shed so they are easy to find and use.

The chicken feed and things are on the right side, the kindling things are on the left, the straw is behind the wagon and the tools are on the wall.

I kept moving things away until all that was left was the roofing stuff and the plywood sides that fit the flat bed trailer. I'll move the plywood tomorrow.

Then I need to put up some trim boards around the bottom of the walls where the plywood has been damaged by rain and snow.

The roofing things can stay there until they get put on the shed roof.



Yes! I really do think it will be me up on the roof nailing down the sheets of roofing. I don't want to mess with the black tar stuff, so nails will have to do. I am going to have to get some help getting the rolls up on the roof.

Putting a covering on the shed roof should be an adventure.
I'm really rather excited.
But, a little scared too.

I don't even know the correct names for the stuff. Rolls of roofing material? I've got a ladder, a hammer, a box cutter, and lots and lots of roofing nails, so I should be good to go.

I think I'll get up on the shed roof tomorrow
and give it a good look over
and see what I can do.

Is there anybody reading this post
who has put on a roof?
Roofing suggestions welcome!

Sorry about the fishy chicken post yesterday, but I was so tired I couldn't think. I'm tired tonight but I have the opposite problem... I just keep thinking of stuff.

One of the Wyandottes is not doing very well again and just sat around in the sun. She did eat and drink a little when I put some food and water next to her. Hope she is better tomorrow.

Kristine went out and got us hamburgers and fries for dinner!
Thank you, Kristine!

Peek at the Past
We are ahead this year.
And we have more wood!

Wow, you are getting it done! Looking great...just remember today, to at least drink liquids. I don't like to eat when I am on a project either.

Good luck with the roofing. I think the roll is called tar paper and that is the most I can contribute.

Wow, you are getting it done!

Remember today to drink lots of fluids.

Tar paper is the roll but that is all I can contribute to the roof.
Do be careful.

The shed is looking great.

Goodness you are really getting into building mode. You must be very proud of what you have done. It always feels good to get organised and throw out unnecessary stuff.Be careful on the roof. I have had 3 friends fall from their roofs and they broke their backs.

Getting rid of stuff feels great!

And good luck with the roof but BE CAREFUL not to fall. I have complete faith in your abilities. :)
