I finished all the wall insulation about a week ago.
Then I hired out the drywall – they did the door wall and the two window walls.
Drywall done! The rest of that insulation is for the ceiling, which will be after I shiplap this whole wall.
I’ve been working on the shiplap after work. Now I need to go get more boards. I loveeee putting up shiplap!! I highly recommend at least one wall of shiplap in every home!! LOL 🙂
I love how the walls have my name on them.
The electrical is just about all pulled – just have to cut the hole for the exterior light and pull wire to that fixture.
I’ve started on the insulation – all the studs (ceiling also) are 2×4’s so I’m using R-13 Pink paper sided insulation for 2×4’s that I purchased from Home Depot. Almost done with the insulation. I’ll end up covering this back wall with shiplap and the other 3 walls with drywall.
I’ve said this before, but I’m telling you, you can learn just about anything from YouTube!! LOL One of the videos I watched talked about using an insulation knife – I thought seriously, lol – I’ll just use a box cutter. Welllll when I went to Home Depot to buy the insulation they had the knife there and it was only $10 sooooo I bought it, lol!! Let me just say – best purchase!!!! This Husky Insulation Knife cuts that insulation like butter!! Highly recommend! 😉
This is the east side of my barn which use to be my “pumpkin patch”. My pumpkins never got very big because it just didn’t get enough sun & my kids are growing their own now – so . . . time to move on, lol. I see this space when I pull into my driveway and I wanted something to block the neighbors lean-to back there and something more pleasant to look at. Remember this is a work in progress.
So Merry Christmas to me! I purchased a Tuff Shed that arrived on Christmas Eve. It’s their Premier Pro Ranch model and it’s 12’x14′. I will use it for my photography studio. It will be so awesome not to have to set up in my living room anymore!
The Tuff Shed crew included 3 guys and from the time they started to the time they finished – this was built (windows and all) in 3 hours!
Time to start electrical and insulation . . . . 🙂
So my daughter introduced me to this little slice of heaven! I love anything LEMON but not so much on sparkling water. I just don’t care for carbonated water. I was presently surprised when she gave me one of these to try. The perfect lemon flavor with such soft bubbles. I’m telling you when I drank my first one it seriously reminded me of Italy. When I read the box and it said “made with Italian lemons” – it was spot on!! I don’t why, but Italian lemons just taste brighter, LOL. If you like lemons – you’ll love this!!
I am in love with my new metal sign! https://realsteelcenter.com/ It is absolutely perfect! This pattern was already a stock pattern and the barn is exactly the shape of mine! They have a ton of great options, even holiday options. The metal is a great weight, no sharp edges and didn’t take long to receive it. Now I just need to figure out where I’m going to hang it – there are a couple options, lol.
Oh my gosh – I love these colors. What a fun project out of allllll scrap wood! You’ll have to wait til Spring to see the finished project!
Why are weeds so pretty? Maybe I should just grow weeds and water these for awhile, lol.
I finished my 10′ outdoor dinning table and benches!
I’ll use chairs for the other side 🙂
Sooooo is it only me that finds this a little weird??!!?! The 2020 Quarter has a bat on the back! Weird, right!
