Framing a New Shed {the walls are up!}

The new shed is coming along nicely and last weekend we starting framing the shed. As I mentioned earlier in the week, we are in need of additional outdoor storage and this small addition will certainly help. My dad isn’t a big fan of helping me inside the house with renovation work but he LOVES to build sheds. I think it’s because his “stuff” gets to go inside the shed. So here we go, the framing process begins.

We already had an existing cement floor so we created a frame (which we nailed to the cement) using pressure treated 2×4’s.

The shed is directly off of our family room which already has a nice storage area beneath. My mom has that space packed with everything from when we were kids. I don’t know why she still has it but she insists on keeping it. Do any of your keep things that long?

We eventually will tear down the trellis that my dad built a few years ago. At one point there was a fence that ran across the yard to the pool area which has since been removed and the trellis looks out of place now that the fence is gone.

In a matter of a couple hours, we had the floor framed and the walls up.

My grandmother watched out the window because she had no idea what we were doing. She is short and can barely see out the window and all I could see was her little white boofy head yelling, “what are you doing down there!?” 😉

My dad tends to go big when he builds so I am hoping to gain a little piece of the new shed for some of my toys but I am not sure how that will go over. Everyone in the house is trying to claim the extra space as “their own” but my dad quickly is putting a stop to that. He already told my mom not to get any bright ideas about putting her stuff in it. 😉
