Wood Store Rebuild

Postby Dalboy » 13 Feb 2020, 14:40

Not a workshop build but wood storage.

Lost the roof of the wood store in the winds. Myself and the wife spent two days emptying it and jamming it into the other store, I just hope I don't want any out of that one until this store is rebuilt.

Even though it was the roof that was taken after emptying it I can see where years of being up that it would be better to completely rebuild the whole thing.

Wood ordered and now delivered this morning the new roof material will arrive tomorrow. I will be giving all the wood some treatment before assembling then all it will need is the normal retreatment every year

Now all I really need is some nice fine dry weather :eusa-think:

This is the new flatpack now where is part A.

Well managed to get onto the rebuild now that the wind has dropped and the rain stopped.
At least today managed to make a start on the biggest panel.

Layed out the frame and screwed together squared it up and held it with a diagonal brace while I got most of the feather edge on. Brace removed and the rest of the feather edge completed.

I was going to spray all the parts but decided to spray panels as they are finished. This one will need to dry before spraying but at least it is finished as far as construction is concerned. I will be putting three or four blocks on the bottom for when we move it as the feather board protrudes 1/2" below the bottom frame. Not worried about the feather board colours as the finish will bring it all to the same colour.

The next piece will be the solid end and then the two doors before constructing the other end I need a door to double-check my measurements as this is being made as I go and not to a plan. I know the sizes without a drawing.

A picture of the roof before the rebuild when I initially built this store I was very much a novice and looking back should have put more supports in the roof.

Another panel made this time one end which still needs the top cutting along the slope and the finish applied. The last picture you can just about see the line I need to cut to

Thank you Andy.

Today started on the other end piece with the door frame.

I used the first end piece as a template as I had squared that one up the only difference being is that the bottom member is short and the centre upright has been moved over to the left a bit more.

With all the feather board added but still need to trim the top slope and the piece that goes over the door

The last couple of days been giving all the exterior surfaces a coat of finish no pictures hopefully get the joint and bottom surfaces done tomorrow if the rain stays off.

Sorry, no pictures as watching finish dry is boring.

Once the finish is applied I will make the doors for it. Then it will be a case of clearing the last of the old one away and erecting this one. Luckily I have some people who are willing to help move these panels into place just need to get a dry and wind-free day.

At last the panels have the finish on and dry. They have just dried before it started to rain again. Now all I need is a dry day no wind and someone to help put it up. How lucky will I be to get all three at the same time

Coming along nicely.

If you've been good, karma will make sure all 3 happen together. :)

Doing what you do, Derek, I'd have been tempted to do hit-and-miss walling, to allow air flow through the store whilst still keeping it dry. This would allow you to season timber in there.

That’s a good idea Mike. Even leaving just a few boards off to allow the air to blow through would be good.
