I started putting gutters on today and it seems that they sold me several wrong connectors so that project will have to wait. I was shocked at the cost of gutters just for 24' across the back was 85.00 almost 25% as much as the shed materials.

When I built an addition on the end of my house, the school bus driver kept asking the kids who the carpenter was. And they kept telling them "my mom". I think it fell on deaf ears as later he asked me who'd done the work. I don't think I was believed either. Would you believe there's a guy putting a storm shelter on the house, who's supposed to be a carpenter. He'd mismeasured the height, which I caught on time altho he now has to shorten the framing by 8". He was planning on cutting into the roof - no no, this isn't an addition, just a small add on.

Congratulations, you have learned what many haven't. There's no reason other then a lack of desire to learn not to do any and all projects around your property.

Yep....good job. I think it's quite nice, and the best thing is you did it yourself.

I'd have built this little number if I hadn't torn a few muscles in the lower back. The beggars are taking longer to heal than I'd like. Pain meds half knock me out so either way.......

I too just built a run-in shelter, I just hope my boys use it. Thus far they haven't really shown any interest in using it. I did have a little help from a family friend - but I did the majority of the labor.

You did a good job!
