« Part 7: roof rafter and panels in, door side siding up, all facia installed, front door built Part 8 of 6'x12' lean-too shed series Part 9: All painting is complete. Roof drip edge, asphalt shingles installed. 99% done with exterior. »

More progress! Before I start installing roof tiles & drip edges…I need to get the painting out of the way.
I assembled the door via instructions (2×4’s sandwiched between siding and OSB) with an almost exact fit (off by 1/4” but eh….). Wanting to try HVLP sprayer but skittish about using my woodworking finish 4 stage sprayer, I opted to try out one of these handheld plastic units. Didn’t want the “flexio” HD brand as I see a whole bunch of returns on these units via auctions. Homeright had great reviews so went that route via Amazon. Not too shabby. Had to thin the outdoor latex paint with water. 1st coat applied to try to match color of stucco desert theme house. Thinking of either white for trim or brick red (I have red clay tiles on my house roof).

Looking great! I might have to look at a low cost sprayer to re do my fences, used air sprayer when we built but compressor, cord and air hose P.I.A. not to mention paint still on air lines! Or maybe a big paint brush for the wife and a lawn chair and beer for me?
