Ripped the old crap away a few weeks ago....

Have a rough idea how this should look like (similar design elements like the doors I just finished building, maybe reverse color scheme).

Transferred the outside edge from the top to the floor. Sanded the metal post with the RAS, applied rust converter and a couple of spray coat of paint...

More progress today. Installed Azek Trim (level) to establish proper circumference/reference line to work off. Trim overhangs to blend unevenness of inside roof and allow for wall panels to sit behind....





Used these little tabs on the inside for proper alignment (one man job).



Moulding piece to cover gap on top...



Now I can build the foundation wall and have a proper reference to keep it parallel to the trim....

Due to the pretty rapid slope of the area in 2 directions I had to add a mortar layer to create a fully level surface:



I should have build up 2 bricks on top of each other on the short end instead of starting of with a mortar foundation. Works anyway and after I cover the outside with a thin layer of mortar no one will know.........

I used roofing asphalt as a water barrier between the wood and the foundation wall.

Will install some kind of flashing to cover the lower portion of the wooden wall as added protection against moisture.

I laid everything out on site so that I can build 4 identical rectangles to make construction easier.

Took everything down today to start construction.

Put up the 4 rectangles to figure out width of smaller rectangle on the one side....

Need to think about height of the two new doors on the bottom....undecided if i want three to protrude close to concrete surface keeping slope of area in front in mind....

Nice progress.  I've enjoyed following this thread.

Are you doing exterior siding going to cover the concrete ledge you put in?  If the door is going to the ground, might look better to have the siding and the door go to maybe 1" above the ground level.  If it's cedar, should be no problem with moisture.

I might use some waterproofing which turns white like plaster on the concrete ledge....

Undecided about the door height. There is a pretty significant slope in front of the opening. Have to check how low I can go. Through about installing something flexible just hanging down... https://www.northshorecommercialdoor.com/gadobrse.html?gclid=CjwKCAjwkMbaBRBAEiwAlH5v_kUVVFqQU9HuJ1DB9atCLhGKhD9gTQvNkCw8kKnalk50LeMv4Fw93hoCT0wQAvD_BwE

Decisions, decisions.

Making this up as I go...

Today I domino’ed the panels.

The large-small-large will be just stuck together without glue. That makes individual panels replaceable if they ever rot....

Also added backing to lower portion of panels. Will cut grooves into them to simulate individual boards...

Added trim detail to opening and did some routing (kids don’t do that at home the way I did it...).

Tomorrow is some more sanding and onto applying stain and white paint....

White lattice will go into the top openings...

Almost there... Still need to build the doors....

More glue-ups....





Also started to cut the grooves into the backing sheets to simulate paneling. A little bit more sanding tomorrow and than it’s staining and painting time....

Hey this is awesome! Thanks for Posting so many photos! Just a practical question - if you’re in NY state - don’t you want something to keep the snow / wind / rain out in winter?!
Looks lovely! What are those very numerous clamps you used for the frames? They look excellent! 😀😀
