Wow, Jeff your shed looks awesome!

It has been a few months since I have been looking over here in the Dedicated Theater section and what do you know, you nearly finished a shed.

Nick, when are you going to start the project in that massive basement of yours?

If it wasn't for the Fracking rain today I would have finished the siding. Right now three sides are done. If it isn't coming down in the AM I should finish the front in time for lunch.

couple of shots:

Is that sunlight poking through? I cant believe it.

Looks great, it is just hte way the picture was taken, or is the shed really on a steep incline?

I think there is a 8 inch variation from front right to left rear. That is the reason I choose the foundation system I did.

Yeah, for some reason it looks way steeper in the picture to me. But 8 inches in that few feet could be alot? I have no idea.

If you have a sharp eye you will note that i repainted the third row back bar and redid all the trim molding to lighten it up. My original paint was too dark and you couldn't even see the bar stools sitting in front because there was no contrast.
Anyway here are some shots i took this evening:

OK, took me a little longer today than anticipated but I wrapped up the vinyl stage. Now, I swear the weather gods are mocking me because as soon as I finished the siding the sun started peaking through the clouds after a couple of miserable days.



Now I need to
finish a little detail work on the soffit corners,
paint the floor
paint the outside trim
build shelves
build the ramp/landing
move crap in.

The outside painting may have to wait until spring unless we get a spurt of warmer weather.

Looks good!

I was expecting a step by step of the siding install though.

Glad to hear that! It is the only part of my upcoming build that I have yet to do before. My plans have been submitted to my HOA, just awaiting approval.

There is a pretty good write up on the Mastic siding web site:

http://www.mastic.com/Homeowner/Lear...s/General.aspx

I also googled some other "Installing vinyl siding" web sites to flush out the details.

I was wondering how he was going to tackle that big step.

BIG, this may seem like a dumb question but with the shed being so big and so nicely constructed do you have to worry about water (i.e. gutters) or is that a non-issue since yours is elevated?

Queen It sits well above ground level so I'm not too worried about not having gutters. Also since the ground is sloped it does dry out at some point. Right now with all the rain and my stomping around, mud is my biggest problem.

I was thinking no gutter too at one point but the rain runs off the roof and splashes onto the shed, now the lower few feet is dirty all the way around. Next year, gutters...

Just keep an eye out for any holes that may get chewed into the side or the floor. They ALWAYS find a way in. And once they're in, there's NO getting rid of them.

Some of the other signs to watch out for....you might have HeyNow^ living in the shed if....

there's a rusted car out front, you might have HeyNow.
someone knocks on your door and asks if that refrigerator out front is free, you might have HeyNow.
there are Christmas lights still up and ON in June, you might have HeyNow.
you notice a distinct lack of possums, you might have HeyNow.

I didn't put gutters on my last shed and the lower foot or so of the shed was always dirty from water splashing on the mulch. My new shed will be getting gutters and a 4" corrugated pipe to take the water to the ditch behind my yard. Or I may install a small rain barrel and use the runoff to water some plants in the backyard.

BIG, I love the idea of a third row counter with stools. Do you know how far it is from your screen wall to the back of the stools? I will probably have 25' between my screen wall and my back wall. Trying to come up with my layout at the moment.

The front of the bar is about 18 ft from the screen. Then you need the width of the bar top and then room for seating. My riser is 6ft 8 inches deep. With your 2 ft deep screen wall It would give you 5 ft for bar and seating which would be doable but tight. This is where building your theater 12 inches longer might make all the difference.

It pisses me off that I can't build a shed in my subdivision. I could really use one like yours. It turned out great, nice job!
