That's what I think I will use for siding. The roof will either be some old tin I have laying around or shingles.

Well the walls for the shed are complete. Except to get the middle of the short wall plumb. I split the sixteen foot long wall in half. Easier to handle by myself. It's not always fun working alone but I'm mostly adjusted to it. Just take extra time to think things through and don't get in a rush.

Hey Tim,
Good to see you making progress on your property. How is the concrete pour coming along?

My internet is back up so I'm going to try uploading some pictures again.

As far as the concrete I haven't made much progress. Between work and a lot of turnover there lately and a few trips I've been running wide open it seems like for a while now. Just need the plumbing signed off.

Last weekend I got the shed walls pulled square.

I got four sheets of the plywood siding I'm going to use on the exterior. I was working by myself as usual so I had to get creative. Used ratchet straps to pull two diagonally opposed corners square and plumb.
I did one corner at a time and when I was satisfied I attached a sheet of plywood on each side of the corner to hold things where it should be. Mostly satisfied with the outcome even though it's not perfect. Next I can frame and cover the roof with plywood without much fuss hopefully.

Hope you roof turns out square. I always square the roof and sheet it and put on the roofing material before putting on siding. Find it easier to square the walls after the roof.

The same here and most also do it that way. Roof first, walls second!

It's only four if the twelve sheets it will take to complete the siding. I used screws too so if need be I can easily remove them to tweak the building. But being I'm moving slowly on this the framing is getting warped from the weather so I'm trying to control it a bit.
