I take it that the bottom of the lake is becoming visible?

Made up a rig to pressurize the under slab drain lines. Put about 7 psi in and it held for five minutes and didn't drop. I then let off the pressure.

Life keeps getting in the way. But the past few weekends I've had time to start building a shed. The shed is both tool storage for construction, a cool place to take a break and eat and a sheltered place to camp out.

I started with a 8x12 design but it grew to be 8x16. The short wall is 8' high and the high wall is 10'. The roof will be a single slope just like my current shed.

I've had no help with this. Not bragging...just how things are lately.

What are you cladding it with?
