A break in the weather allowed me to get a coat of white primer on two sides of the shed. I was looking through my painting supplies in the basement this morning and found nearly a whole gallon of exterior white primer and a full gallon of exterior latex house and trim paint so that saves me about 40 dollars. With two sides done less than half a gallon of the primer is left so I may have to break down and buy another can.
This is the reason I went crazy with the gravel. The day the shed was built it rained on and off for hours. I took this picture the next day 24 hours after the rain had passed. The photo is a great example of how wet the back end of my property can be even days after torrential rains.
This is the shed of my next door neighbor Frank Horton. Frank's shed is over 20 years old and still looking good. A World War II veteran in his 90's Frank stays active still mowing his own grass and puttering around his property enjoying his retirement.
