The whole time I was making the shed because just would have taken too long, and he already took me 2 or 3 weeks to put the whole thing together, because I had to work quite a bit so um so start by showing you the outside. I used just regular concrete cap wall block for the base. I laid down two sheets of four mil plastic and just for a vapor barrier and actually started out with about six or eight of these block underneath. But because I thought that the floor kit on this shed would be strong enough to hold my weight but ended up, I needed more, so that would be a little bit more sturdy. That's the whole story of this shed pretty much.
The metal that is made of is pretty thin, so you've got to just make sure that it's all put together well and have a good foundation for it other than that, it's not too bad. If you do a good foundation, there are a few things that you can do to make it stronger like get a roof strengthening kit, but I didn't do that, so you can see that it has washers behind all the screws. Everything that touches the paint has the washer on it, except for those screws on the ridge right there, which they mentally are, I actually supposed to add washers behind them, but mine forgot those but other than that looks pretty good on the outside. You can see. I have some reflective some foil tape on the roof. That's because I didn't get the roof strengthening kit and if you don't buy that kit, you have a string of holes in the roof on each side that you have to cover up or fill in somehow. So I just chose to use foil tape, that's pretty much it on the outside. It's doesn't Bend very much when you press on it and if you shake on it, it doesn't move at all. It's pretty heavy.
Now that I have the plywood boards on the inside. We did have a storm when I was working on it and I had left one of the panels on the inside and when picked up the shed, because it was only about halfway built and lifted it off the blocks and moved it about three feet away. In that panel, that was on the inside pushed up against it, so I've got some dents in it, but it does dent easily. But it's not it's not awful. So I'll show the doors slide pretty easily. I had to adjust him slightly, but it wasn't hard at all. I just do these little plastic runners that they go on and it's it shows you if the door needs to be raised or lowered what holes to put them in. So that was pretty easy. Pretty good amount of space and the 8 by 10 there's the 10 by 12. Do you need more space, but I think the 8 by 10 would be fine for me because I'm not going to not permanent shed and I'm just going to use it for a little bit of work. So you can see. I got the insulation on the inside, it's Reflectix reflective insulation, it's not very thick, but actually does help out a little bit, especially at being a metal shed. I definitely needed something in here to make it a little bit cooler. So I used 3 m 3m duct tape for the foil duct tape and has like an acrylic adhesive on it, which works really well. I've had this hanging up on the roof of the shed for more than a week now, and none of the tapes has come off great thing to see. That's where the roof strengthening kit would be.
There would be two beams running along on each side there, so it wouldn't really restrict Headroom very much, but I just didn't want to spend more than a hundred dollars for a few beams. So the plywood for the floor. I just used three sheets of plywood three sheets of treated three-quarter inch plywood and it fit pretty well. I didn't have to I didn't square up the shed after the very beginning when I first started working on it, so it may have fit better. If I had done so, but it fits pretty well without doing that and there are dimensions on the instructions that show you how big to cut your sheet. So it's not that difficult. I just you just screw it in with your own screws. They don't come in the kit. I just used regular drumrolls drywall screws, that's what it said to use. It works pretty. Well, they go into the four frames easily. I also did a little bit of insulation in the gaps down there at the bottom and also out here, under the edge of the roof, just use some good stuff, good stuff Spray insulation and actually the kind that naturally repels insects.
I guess it's bitter or something to the taste so did that plug up some of the holes and then I also used metal silicone for some of the gaps here. It's not always a flush fit on all the panels, so I wanted something to keep bugs from getting in as easily. I use some of that and you can see it's some up there mainly and these corners here there's a spider right there, mainly in the corners here. I used it because the gables don't meet very well in the corners, but it's not a big issue. Pretty much all I did other than what was actually in the instructions to do just a little bit of extra insulation and sealing and also some extra block, but they don't really tell you all that to do with the block. I only have insulation on the backsides of the doors, the roof, and this one wall right here and right now, just because that was just one roll and I think it's like $ 43 per roll. So I just waiting to spin more since I really need to put it on this wall because it faces the where most of the sunlight is it's the hottest. So, overall, it's a pretty good shed.
