Latest update on the Herb and Flower drying shed. We’ve put in a window, painted the front door, added a floor, installed a side door, and there’s still more to do. The little touches, like painting with stencils, give it a special touch and added character. Also, our brown and orange colors are consistent with our house colors. We never deviate from our three-color scheme for unification (brown, orange, and green).
The wood for this door was free from a woman who was going to take it to the dump. The redwood was pickled with termite tracks, covered in moss, and looked used and weathered. I wanted to give it new life so I planed down the boards and build a heavy door. It’s blond now but will fade to brown. Or, I could stain it to match the darker wood.
The inside was decorated with fence boards to make the shelving, and someone dropped of fir boards. Originally I was going to use the fir to make shutters for the windows, but I had enough to replace the dirt floor and cover it with this nice wood. I have a step up to work at the bench/table. The inside is terraced based on the hillside.
I still plan to make shutters and paint them green. In case I need to cover the windows in a storm. Waiting for the right, free lumber. Never know when that’ll come along. My friend has a big pile of scrap mill wood, so I’ll check out pieces to salvage.
