Shed down and a friend...

Inspecting the progress

The burning of the shed
The shed is being dismantled.  The wood supporting the roof is so rotted that it comes apart by banging it with a crowbar.

The husband spent the day taking it apart and burning the pieces.  He says he will salvage some of the front boards as they are "true 2x4s", you know back when a 2x4 meant a board that was 2" by 4" and not todays 1 1/2" by 3 1/2".  This can be problematic when you are working on an old house and cannot find replacement boards of the right dimensions (no matter what they call them).

I guess calling them 1.5 x 3.5s just doesn't have the same ring...

Anyway, the point is not the boards, but the removal of the fine shed.

Our projects are not without their little (or big) surprises. This one was found in the rotted shed sill.  Don't worry he let it go. I don't think it is in my basement or behind my fridge, or in my bed, but you just never know.
