Yesterday was warm enough (barely) to lay down a coat of primer on the front of the shed. Last fall we were able to prime and paint the other three sides so this is the remaining side that needed to be painted. I still need to move the downspout and finish priming under the threshold, and over the door.
We will finish up the shed restoration with a project that we hope will replicate the hand hammered metal straps that are original to the doors on the house. More on that later.
The final dark grey coat will go on much faster then the white primer. The cedar has a rough surface so it requires more time insuring that it is completely covered with primer and that there are no drips coming from paint in between the shingles.
Here is what the shed looked like at the end of autumn 2013.
