Greg, great little shed. You definitely caught the look of the original.

I'm far behind. Sketched what I want to build but have not collected materials yet. And already talk of a new challenge!

Gutters look great !




Thanks! Karl, Railrunner130 & Mike, for your nice comments and for your posts.
Here is the front photo of this shed, I held it in my hand so that I could tip it back a bit to see the bracing under the canopy.

Greg', That is a record for building a scratch structure.
And you have captured it perfectly as I think it once was. Now, Greg,
the question is, what are you going to sell?

Dogs, ice cream, ices, or all three... Excellent build as usual'..

Ted, I'm glad you like it!
I was thinking it would make a nice fruit & vegetables stand.
Though, It will all depend on where it finally ends up being used.

I'm just getting caught up here. Good looking sheds, Railrunner, Karl and Greg.

How'd you make those gutters, Greg?

Thanks! George.
The gutters are made from half round 2.5mm styrene, with fine brass wire supports bent around the half round styrene and glued in place. I also used 3/64 brass wire for the downspouts.

Greg,
Really like the build and the gutters and downspouts look great. What is the connection piece between the downspout and gutter?

Thanks! Dave & Bob.

Dave, that is some AC glue, it formed around the downspout when I glued the downspout to the gutter. After it dried I pulled the down spout away from the gutter, and it left a bump with a hole in it where the downspout was.
Panited it all flat white, and it just blended in with the rest of the styrene gutter.
I was trying to replicate the downspout not being connected to the gutter, like in the original photo of this shed.

Any more takers? Just two people have taken up this little challenge?

Greg- I do love those gutters. That was one of the things that drew me to the building in the first place. Perhaps some day I'll sit down and add them.

If only a small handful of participants, that is better than none. I just read through this post today. Excellent builds by everyone involved.
I'm currently building a shed of sorts much smaller than yours shown here and I have been at it more than time I have taken in the past on larger buildings. Interesting...as is this challenge!
I'd like to undertake the project but can't as I have 1:1 projects to finish first before an more modeling. Thanks for all the inspiration.

If there is interest, I'll put together a few more challenges. In the mean time, keep the photos coming!
