Wood shed – phase II

Spring in Comox!  While the rest of the country seems trapped in deepest winter, I took the opportunity to work in 12C weather in early February and jumped into phase II.  After a bit of wrangling, I managed to get the uprights set and square.  The deck I made in phase I worked like a charm.  I now have to add some strapping to keep the firewood contained plus come up with a roof design that allows me to capture the rainwater.  Project cost thus far – about $140.  I’ve used recycled 2×4 and 2×6 lumber from my brother’s old deck and only had to buy the concrete footing blocks and 4×4 uprights.

Phase III to follow…
