I spent hours and hours on the website and I know it saved me many thousands of dollars and just as many headaches. I'm extremely proud of my house and have already been asked to put it in a home show. I estimate that I have amassed at least $175,000 equity for my efforts.

Building on the initial round of work I did last week in extracting some of the rigid blue foam insulation out of the old shed and installing it in the new shed's attic, I spent much of today doing more of the deconstruction.

Of course I didn't tear down the whole shed or anything yet - I probably won't do that until next summer. I did however get some good work done on removing much of the interior plywood and then popping out the foam insulation we'd wedged between rafters and studs during the old shed's construction. Along the way I discovered two wasp nests (brake cleaner is an excellent substitute for bug spray if you don't have any of that handy) behind various slabs of insulation and re-discovered just how hard it is to move those big 4'x8' planks of plywood around in that now-seems-tiny shed. While the insulation could be nicely stacked up outside for eventual deployment as I did last week, I didn't want to set the plywood and odd pieces of OSB outside in the event of rain - that wouldn't do them any good at all. also salvaged several nice long 2x4s that we'd used as cross-beams during construction.

All of the wood will eventually get relocated back down to Tanglewood for use in other projects. The odd bent nail or screw I pulled out of them went into the metal recycling bucket, while the good screws went back into the nuts and bolts bucket for later. The insulation of course will go into the attic of the new shed in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting of course.

A goodly day, though I could have done without the wasps...

The uphill side of the old shed with the plywood walls removed. I'd forgotten we'd used spray foam to seal up gaps; that makes it harder to remove the foam pieces intact.
Far downhill corner looking over the old shelving unit. You can see I've removed the interior plywood and most of the foam that was on that lower wall. You can also see a few partially-removed 2x4s there.
Looking up at the roof just inside the door. That big discolored area is where we'd sprung a quite annoying leak, and was part of the reason for building the NEW shed.
Removed insualtion was stacked outside (on top of a sheet of metal intended for one of the doors) and tied down with a couple of light ropes so they wouldn't blow all over the hillside.
