You can actually watch the building become slicker as you nail each board on!

You can actually watch the building become slicker as you nail each board on!

Rain stopped play unfortunately just as I was getting into the groove this afternoon. Can’t believe it’s my building under there! So glad I decided to go with the cedar now – shiplap would never have looked this slick. The wood is so easy to work and gives such a clean, sharp finish it’s untrue.

You can just see underneath the cladding next to the sliding door how I’ve “built out” the battening on the front of the shed to give a more dramatic front to the building. The cedar cuts like butter and offers such lovely smooth lines that I very quickly saw I could get the dramatic lines of the “Ecospace” studio quite simply by building additional depth into the front of the design…

I simply added another CLS batten underneath, allowing the cladding to “stick out”, making both the “step” at the end of the sliding door and the entrance to the roller shutter more defined, by adding more depth.

Am considering cedar cladding my volvo – it’s boxy enough…
