Storage Shed. I start to start working today and show you what exactly I'm working with because I never put citing it before and it's like a fancy jigsaw puzzle. So there are lots of different little pieces, but they will not last there's only basically four different pieces, five different pieces and they fit together really well. So you can't tell where the where they fit together. So like this little piece here and the siding that we're using has a little nailing strip on top and on the back here, there's a little lip down here, and this is so it puts into the top of another piece of siding right here. So the bottom of one piece of siding hooks into the top of another, and so that's, why looks continuous, but it's not and they cook together really well you know when you got them hooked together, they're these types of pieces.
They have this Lake, they have an outing strip on the bottom and a pocket inside, and these are four at the top. So I get the top you tuck that in there, when you get to the top of wherever you're running your siding or if you've got a door or window and I'll show you where I done those this stuff goes into the side here, so it just tucks In there, so a lot of little pockets and crevices for the deciding to tuck into, and that's basically it for the siding and the where, where that sticks into you, have to cut different pieces around your your windows and doors and the when I did there. But then there are these little, these little runners for the soffit, and so instead of having a pocket that faces down, they face out because the soffit runs on the side of your wall to your fascia board and it sits in this pocket here. You know I'll climb up on a ladder and show you where we did some of that and then the soffit, which is just this. It's like the siding similar, but it's bent it and we went with with all vinyl stuff, because I could have done plywood we're going a little. It would have been cheaper.
So I'm up here on the ladder and you'll see here's the little runner for the soffit. It's level with the fascia board here, so that the soffit goes inside, that little pocket and over here, and it will screw into the bottom of the fascia board. And that's pretty simple you just got to kind of stack them one on top of the other and go down, and I'm I'll show you that when I get to it haven't done that anywhere. Yet there's this corner piece we're finally showing it. But it's just it's like it's like this. This other pocket thing at the top, but it's just for the sides and it makes the corners look nice. If you could see over here on the window, we got some more of this. This same pocket. Runner thing! I don't know what to call these pieces, I'm sure I'm using the wrong names for all of them, but those are around. The windows tried to make it look nice by cutting a 45-degree angle on one of them and then tucking the other one in since we're not professionals, it's probably not the way to do it, but that's what we did. My friend and I we're working yesterday. You get a lot of this done and it goes down there and but it looks it looks pretty decent from far away. It's a shed not too concerned about it and then there's all the siding and still haven't figured out exactly how to do. The bottom like secure the bottom to the to the shed, so it doesn't flap up, but let me see we got that window done. Neighbor is vacuuming their lawn there's a lot of reasons.
This is just one long side and then we'll have to have to run some of that. The runner for the soffit of the up, the angle there and back down and cut the siding pieces to length and I'm still not sure what to do about the corner. There, my friend who's, he's done the stuff before he's he's got an idea of what to do there so I'll. Let him figure that stuff out, but then the corner and another full side, and so the way that we did these things we put the soffit runner up. First then, we put the corner pieces on and then we put that top pocket on and then the very last thing you do is put the siding on starting from the bottom going up top and it's really easy to put on really fast and we use roofing Nails too, just because we had a lot of those left over and those have a big head, so they hold the siding on pretty well. So that's that's that for right now, I'm gon na frame in the door there with the with that material, the little pockets and then I'm gon na start putting the siding up on this side. Leaving. I got to leave this this this area right here empty because no sightings can go in there, I'm going to put a ramp, so we don't have to keep stepping up into the shed, but the ramps gon na come mostly laughs, most likely laughs. So that's it for the the siding for now show you what we get when we get to it all right, so I got siding done on the doorway side.
We got the fascia board on or the fascia over top of the fascia board and we got these corners. Let me see if I can get out of the Sun, so you can see one of these corners better. There yeah got the corners got the soffit going. All the way up at all the siding, which is nice and I friend Greg, helped me out a lot since he knows about this stuff, and I don't so. I was his helper on most of this stuff soffit going down there fascia all the siding, pretty much. All the trim and yeah it's coming along almost usable, so the big things you need to work on now are you can see still a big gaping hole but yeah it's um got some work to do there so doors and a ramp of some variety still trying To figure out what to do for that, but four doors we decided to get two of these big 36 inch doors didn't get out of here. There we go and we'll use these as sliding doors they will slide over there when they're open and when they're shut, they'll just slide and cover up the opening here and have to make that so that they're sturdy enough to use this shed sliding doors. But so that's what I'm going to work on now see if I can get those up by myself. If I can't I'll enlist some help - and these are - these are just untreated - so I'm gon na stain them just to give them some protection from the weather and probably they're nice doors heavy so see how that goes.
