Is it worth dismantling my 12x16 shed to move it? I'm asking because I noticed carpenter ants in it the other day.

I don't want to risk moving it in one piece. I had kept the bad cylinder head from the D8 and when I was carrying it out I lost my grip and dropped it and broke a couple floor joists. Didn't help the floor is sagging from the weight of stuff I had in it.

If they are only in the floor, you could scrap the floor, and put the walls and roof on a floating pad.

As to whether it’s worth it or not, depends on if it’s worth your time to move it versus the cost of materials, and if you have a use for it.

Price out the lumber it would take to build it. Lumber prices are still up there--FJB!

As far as the ants, look to see how extensive their feeding has been. You can saturate the wood with various chemicals (used motor oil, WD40, Brakleen, etc.) which will discourage further dining.

I noticed lumber is creeping back up in price. Looking at $1800 duplicate it. Last visit to Home.Depot I noticed they sell spray for carpenter ants. Going to give that a try.

Upper windows are ready for paint now.

Indoor humidity has been hanging around 65% lately. Kind of concerned and frustrated.

Any heating/ air conditioner going yet?

Or are you frustrated that building does not seem air/ humidity tight?
