« Part 6: Moved shed 12" more. 7 4'x8' barnwood siding installed. Good experience due to errors Part 7 of 6'x12' lean-too shed series Part 8: Door assembled, caulking done around trim, 1st coat of paint via hand sprayer »

good progress on the shed this weekend.
Finally, installed roof rafters, birdsmouth cutouts, and roof paneling.
Next, all the facia (I would personally call it trim, but eh) installed.
Creation and fitting of front door.
And thank goodness someone here on LJ suggested air nailing gun after I constructed the platform base. Couldn’t imagine hammering all the siding and trim!

No soffit in the eaves before you put on the fascia? Forgot the door handle too :)
Yes, other than the pain to run power cord and air hoses, air nailers are a real
time and work saver!

fascia, as I understand it, goes on after trim is installed. So I can still put it in. However, was thinking of just slapping in anti-bird/pest screening instead. To give airflow. However, maybe soffits serve a purpose more than I think. Will have to look into it today.
Door handles and door trim not yet installed. Just finished the framing of the door last night then sun went down :)
