Any issues with water flowing into/through the backyard shop?

Looks good. Wood siding has the most appealing look IMO. Are you going to paint or stain?

Good. Interesting. Best wishes. Please post updates from time to time.
I have a somewhat similar situation, although i am hampered by it being a rented place.

Tell me more about that gate, like how it's constructed.

No - the slab is graded to slope away from the roll-up door and out to the alley.

Paint with a tinted sealer underneath. The color is a grey-beige to match the house. The lowest layer of siding is Hardie board, pine lap-siding for the rest.

No, not boxing - there is an 18" overhang which should minimize rain splash. And I anticipate adding a porch covered by a shed-roof.

As for the gate - it was welded together n my backyard. I can't speak knowledgeably about its construction. I'll get some close up pics for you as we go on.

It was a cool old building with a lot of character. It was like the garage I hung out in with my grandfather.

But there was no foundation - the walls were anchored to 4x4s on each side. and a concrete floor had been poured n the dirt at some point. It was crowned in the center and one side was 5 inches higher than the other. The whole building leaned to one side. Maybe you can see the lean here -



I was tempted to just demolish it and start from scratch, but I was advised that, first, that would be way more $$$, and second, the permitting process would be expensive, time consuming and mind-numbing.

So I began the restoration.








Note the chain link fence, partially demolished.

New Look

Note the one window in the middle of the wall. Here is the new plan - horizontal window, opens out, faux shutters below.

I'm in Dallas. It was 70 degrees yesterday. I cooked a brisket in the backyard.

My daughter moved to Chicago in December. After a week she bought a full length down coat. We grew up in STL and she said "Dad, I thought I knew what cold was!"
