Completed April 2005
This project was done both as a functional building for storing garden equipment and the potting of plants as well as a decorative building to resemble a rustic cabin for landscaping. The 12′ x 16′ wood framed structure is built on a 4″ thick steel reinforced concrete slab formed and poured by Arthur Contrereas with the concrete purchased from Daniels Rock and Ready Mix. There is a 6′ x 16′ porch along the east side of the building with a cedar floor. Electrical service was run underground by Finn’s Electric to provide electricity to the building. The 4×8 sheets of wood grained James-Hardie fiber cement siding with vertical grooves was installed directly to the studs. Roof construction consists of engineered wood trusses on building and 2×6 rafters on porch, wood stringers over rafters, covered with galvanized, 29 gauge, corrugated Strongbarn tin. Uninsulated 6′ x 6′-6″ overhead door was supplied and installed in the back of the building by Keith Hostetter. Front entry door was built from 1″ rough cedar to resemble a cabin door. Building has two 24″ x 36″ vinyl single hung windows, one in south end and one on west side, to let in natural light. Most all of the material was purchased at Home Lumber Company in Winfield. Painting of exterior siding was done by the customer.
