Well, I did that for a couple three reasons, one, material lengths, namely OSB. I wanted to optimise the use of what I had to buy. I wanted all I could get in the cantelevered roof in the front, but didnt want to buy extra OSB. As it works out, its was exactly two sheets long.  The other reason is, I have built this building stout enough that if I want to move it somewhere else on my property I can, and if I do ever move it, I want to be able to double it's size by simply removeing the siding on the back and putting it up aginst another structure. The 3rd reason is, you dont ever see the backside, only the neighbor and a glimpse of it going down the back road once the leaves are down. I considered not even staining it. ;) ;D

NOW CHIPMONK PROOF!

Stacy and I spent much of the week making and installing the soffit for the shed. I have a router and a cheap router table so we would cut each piece then run it through to make shiplap joints so when it shrinks we dont get unwanted vent holes for da birds and da bees. Especially da Bees.  Stacy got all the stain used up this morning. The hardware store is out of it, we are out, and they wont be ordering any more until spring. 

THe weather here has been unpresidented. As you see from the photos below we still have a ton of leaves on the trees. Never before have I saw this here. ALWAYS by Halloween the leaves are down and we have them taken care of.

We kept doing things in steps because we knew winter was at our heels. When we put the tar paper on, we knew we had to get it up to protect the OSB because there was no way we would have time to do siding. Just not enough fall left. Well, as you can see we got the siding up and unbelievably we got it stained and all closed in and CHIPMONK PROOF! 8)   

The only thing we have left to do on the outside is finish off under the overhang. Right now, I am not sure what I am going to do there. I might edge some cedar poles then edge them with the mill, and screw them up there. Not sure yet, but that is well protected and I can think about it with out worry until spring. That is unless God blesses us with another week like this past week and then Stacy and I will probably be out there working together on that.  :)

I have to say, the best part of this project has been working together with Stacy on all the different things. We work well together. :)

 As someone posted elsewhere on the Forum, working with your kids is what it's all about. Really nice job.

 On an earlier post I said " I am now making my resevations for the next piggy roast. I want the guesthouse portion. I don't want to  run the dog out of his portion. "
I have changed my mind.  That guesthouse is way too fancy for my wife and myself . We are used to living in this shack we call a house. :( I guess we will have to stay in the Days Inn again next pig roast. ;)

Is it to run the TV cable into the shed, or maybe to run the wires for the computer? You will need a computer and TV when you are sent to the shed. ;D

Its just the electric, but internet would be no problem out there because we are running a wireless router.  The shed will only be a shed and my blade sharpening room until we get the next big construction project done, but we have no isea when that will be.  It may be just a garage and shop, or it might be an addition/garage and shop. If we can get the approval of using our own materials approved by the powers that be,
