The garden shed is surrounded by trees - a recipe for moss to grow.

Here is a closer look at the moss on the roof - the other side had even more.

(24:07:2016)


We forgot to do a "before" picture. This is the side of the shed after Allan sprayed it with moss remover and then power washed it. It used to be mostly pale green with rusty marks at the bottom. This looks like new siding!

(26:07:2016)

The front of the shed was not this white either. Too bad cleaning can't straighten that door frame!

(26:07:2016)


Almost emptied ready for work to start and a couple of rough "shelves" removed from the back wall.

(27:07:2016)

The left wall has some hand tools and rakes left.

(27:07:2016)


The right side has the baskets of irrigation parts and a few other things. The rafters used to be full of old siding, shingles, and poles.

(27:07:2016)

The contractor has arrived and immediately set to removing the moss from the old roof. Within an hour the entire roof had been removed!

(27:07:2016)


The next step was new particle board sheeting.

(27:07:2016)

Allan assisted with getting the sheeting up to the roof.

(27:07:2016)


The sheeting was covered with felt, and then metal roofing.

(27:07:2016)

The final piece going in place.

(27:07:2016)


All finished in just 5.5 hours!!

(27:07:2016)

There was just some clean-up left to do. The old shingles went away with the contractor.

(27:07:2016)


And so did the old sheeting.

(27:07:2016)
After three days of hard work, most of the contents are back, although a load of "stuff" also went to the dump. There are two new shelves, edged so that things don't roll off.

The tree pruner has its own bracket so it doesn't have to go in the rafters.

(31:07:2016)
Seldom used items hang on the back wall.

(31:07:2016)



And special brackets hold tools.
