    Moved the hangers for the lawn and garden tools over, and mounted them up. The shed is built on 24" centers instead of 16", so same as Tuff Shed, yay, but my hanger for the shovels and rakes is 36". I rigged a backer board to mount it up to... And mounted it up...

    Ran to the BORG to do the curbside pickup. Waited, waited, waited, went in after a 20 minute wait, only to have the poor girl out waiting at my car...

    Got the 3 shelving units on the one side set up. Danged hot already inside that shed, outdoor temp already 81 deg F... I forgot to get the vents. Yeah I'm a dummy...

    For anyone wondering, it is already 81 deg F with 95% RH. I am HATING this weather in March... This is more like late May...

    The new racks are narrower than the old one, at 18" instead of 24", but that's fine. The 24" deep ones were triple the price and not worth it to me.

    Wise choice. Settle the estate BEFORE throwing axes...

    Because we are getting older, my wife and I met with an attorney to get an estate plan started. In an odd juxtaposition, we then went axe throwing. We returned home unscathed from both activities.

    Well fertilizer...

    I dug around in the attic. Not a fun excersize BTW... and only found one of the sets of shelving. And it is 36 not 48 inch... Guess Home Depot gets more of my money. Yay for them...

    So there is the pic. The from this perspective, trim at the roof on the rear right still needs to be finished, but that is also in the area of the lawn that never really gets sun and is, well a muck hole. So I need to stabilize the ladder first. All the thin spots of orange are now plenty thick, and the trim DOES have orange paint sealing it up, so it is a cosmetic issue now, not a protection issue. Oh and FWIW, I know I am within the HOA limits as my 8' ladder is a mere 6" shorter than the peak of this shed, so they did what they were supposed to and the HOA can pound sand... It does block the view from the back bedroom window, but I honestly don't care...

    ***UPDATE***

    Paint trim work DONE. Brushes / roller / sprayer cleaned up.

    Looking for hanger hooks in my spares to mount up the ladders... Yay...

    Spent some time painting trim on the shed, I have paint drips to fix now, and the trim on the back of the shed and I can move on to setting up shelving. I thought the side wall of the shed would be a good place to move my fiberglass ladders to as well...

    UPDATE: Working as things with the job ebb and flow. Finished up 7/8 of the trim, touched up the paint drips, and a few weak spots the sprayer didn't cover as well as I had hoped. My yard has some muddy patches, and where the ladder needs to go to get up wto the remaining bit of trim is one of them. Will lay out some of OSB cutoffs to keep the ladder from sinking in after work and finish it off...

    Will wait until either late tonight, or early tomorrow before work starts to get the surplus shelving units I have been stowing in the attic forever down. Probably tomorrow so the attic isn't quite so warm...

    I believe I have 2 of them upstairs, and I have 1 in use in the garage, plus one wire bakers rack that used to be a LAN / Server rack many years ago... So 6ft tall x 4ft long x 18" deep. As the actual floor space isn't quite 12' long, I will be happy with putting 2 of the racks on either side, and then buying new 36" long but otherwise matching size racks... I need to install vents in this thing. The builder was supposed to be no end vents... For the price I paid no shock either...

    My wheel barrow is more or less trash right now. I could use one but it will HAVE to be housed in the shed. So I guess there will be some wheel barrow hanger shopping going on as well...

    You know I have too much limb / small diameter trunk debris. I need to "cookie" a bit of it. I was actually thinking about just making Crepe Myrtle cookie coasters for some gifts this upcoming holiday season...

    Worked in the office today, ran the bus home early so I could finish off my day at home. And then slammed out the door trim on the shed...

    Managed a couple of paint drips I am going to have to chase down later, but tomorrow assuming the same routine, I need to get the roof ends sealed up so if rain hits later this week, I won't have any exposed wood...

    Seriously dislking the OSB on the ramp deck. the shed floor doesn't flex but oh boy does that ramp!

    Not yet. Not required but a good idea... honest didn't think about it until afterwards hurricane straps can be added as long as I have the walls unfinished... Anchors will have to be driven slightly outboard...

    Is the new shed anchored to ground with Hurricane straps?

    The thin spots were ticking me off. Went out with a roller and made quick work of them. Back to drying...

    Ended up with a fhin spot or two that will be touched up with a brush later this week, but overall happy with the spray guy and the short work it made of painting this shed.

    Touch up and trim later this week, then start setting up the shelving!
