Jonathan's Senior Project: Part 1

This summer Jonathan is working on his senior project which is building a garden shed from scratch.  We were able to find a window...


...and a door at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for a whopping $7.00.


The door was a little taller than Jonathan had planned, but at that price it was worth changing his plans!


First step--footings


These are really fun to dig since our soil is almost completely clay.


The project attracted some "helpers".


Okay, almost level...


...now add the rock base.


We have the beginnings of the floor.


Here come some stringers.


This is getting exciting!


Ah, the plywood top...


...last piece


Sweep it off and it's done.  Next step...trusses!
