To catch up on how we got here, check out Shed Stories Parts 1 – 4 We thought we’d be painting but… we hit a problem. After a heavy rain we’ve discovered some water damage. Ugh! The shed has 4 transoms (I didn’t know that word till now) on the back wall and apparently they are not as water tight as they should be.

Patrick is working on a solution that will drain the water but still looks great. A minor setback, yes… but still minor. Another few days of dry weather (and dry drywall) and we should be back on schedule. Join us for Shed Stories Part 5:

When we can paint should we go with our original colors? – N
