As I am sure all the regular readers knew this shelter project, which is just a sub-project of the overall fencing project, is waaaay over budget and deadline. Seems to be the story of my life when it comes to things like these.
To show you guys that I am at least reading your comments I have taken the advice of several of you smart people and added an inside wall.
I also bought some concrete nails and managed to sink em pretty far into that old super hard pad so hopefully the ram won't destroy his house trying to use it as a scratching post. I really didn't have any suitable old lumber laying around so I had to purchase three sheet of exterior plywood to cover the inside wall with to stand up against the rain that will get blown in. I really needed it anyway as the backside of the sheet siding ain't waterproof anyway.
These upgrades cost me another day at least and of course we have rain forecast for Wednesday and Thursday so I am going to be even further behind on getting the fence going again.
I must say though that I think the thing is sturdy enough and I am at least ready to start putting the roof sheets on tomorrow if I don't get rained out.
I did make one very stupid screw up however. I measured the angle and length for the top triangle piece for the East side and then cut it and when I went to put it on guess what? Yep I cut it from the inside like a complete idiot.
Luckily I was able to flip it over and had enough extra length to cover what needed to be covered but of course it now looks like crap.
So far over budget by almost $120.00. Exterior plywood is some expensive stuff let me tell ya.
Ar least I am almost done and I admit I knew this was going to be a painful mini-project going into it. Always a myriad of unexpected problems and design problems you can just never foresee on paper no matter how much ya try.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
