A Little to the Left...

 First you move the Tessie TV.  Then you clean up the woodworking area and move Tessie out of the way.

Then you draw up plans...

Zar did this in about the easiest way possible. 

The roof was made from some leftover siding.  A piece 6" by 2" was all he needed.

The floor to keep the wood up off of the ground was 1 1/2" by 5 3/4".  The posts were 1/4" stock cut at an angle, so that the roof would slope... That way the rain and snow just fall off.

We used the little flat sticks that are sold by the bag at Walmart in the craft department for the side braces.

I simply added those after Zar had the rest put together.  They sit below the floor and are glued to it and the small 1/2" pieces that were used for legs.

This same structure can be closed in with screening and used for rabbit hutches and chicken pens. Different sized for whatever animal you choose.

Anyway, we made short work of the build.  Stained the whole thing and glued the back legs to the wall of the building.  It's not going anyplace for a while and the wood will be nice and dry.

I did get two more of the windows finished inside.  We are moving right along! 

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey! The log storage unit that you and Zar are building is looking really good! I love the look of stacked timber destined for the fireplace, in a miniature landscape. It automatically implies a sense of action- Good Team Work! :D

Hi Casey. The wood storage holder looks great. How much snow and rain is it likely
to get? Ha Ha.
