So, we are in the home stretch of closing on the sale of our house. One of the appraisal-required repairs is to replace the rotted siding and door on my 16x20 two-story shop.



Been needing to do it for about 8 years and never got around to it.

Because of the ground elevation between the shop and the fence, as well as the rotted siding on the back side, water would enter the shop on the backside and run across the floor, up against the front side wall, all of which rotted out half the seal plates and the bottom 6" of studs holding the siding on. So, in order to replace the rotten siding, I also had to replace 36 feet of seal plate, 40 studs, 14 sheets of rigid foam insulation, 12 sheets of t1-11 siding, and 20 pieces of 1x4x8, and a new utility door.

Since the structure hadn't seen a fresh coat of paint in about 20 years, there was no chance of painting to match, so we had to repaint 3 sides. Took 4 gals at $40/gal.











I'm proud of the work I did myself, but it's leaving a bad taste in my mouth that I'm not going to get to enjoy it after Friday,
