Run in Shed I

It is 24F (-4.4C) and overcast and we are to get more snow flurries today. I think it is supposed to be spring, but winter just doesn't want to leave.

I pulled out this sketch that I did a couple of years ago (see post on 18 June 2013) when I went out for a drive in the countryside.

Beginning with the closest building I put in the barn board and straightened the fascia boards. Next I added some overgrown grasses and weeds at the base of the shed.

Then I moved to the next building and began working on the well weathered, wooden roof. Some of the boards had warped and twisted showing their age.

From there I started on the solid side wall with its entry door for the times when the animals are shut into the shed during bad weather. Then the back wall and interior sidewall.

Lastly I added a fence line in for the pasture and some long grass and growies around the second shed.
