This is a picture of an 8 x 16ft shed I constructed out of old barnwood. Notice the rusted tin on the roof.

I constructed 2 sliding doors each weighing 200 lbs each. I had to beef up the sliding rail so I welded brackets to a 4" x 16' flat bar. The doors absolutely glide so smooth.

    Oh no noise at all since we'll be listening to the rain. Speaking of listening to the rain, we had a very nice rain shower this evening! After such a dry summer is was weird, but also heavenly, seeing it rain so steadily all the way home from the movie in Omaha.
