I was swamped last weekend and so couldn't get anywhere near the shed until this past weekend, but I was finally able to finish tearing up the flooring.

It was a remarkable mess under there.  There was a huge mouse nest in one section, and big wasp nests in several of the sections along the outside.  I'd kinda wondered why there were wasps around while I was building the new Shed and I guess now I know (note to self:  good screening on all the openings in the new Shed attic). 

It took two trash bags to clean all this out, but by the end of the day most of the salvageable insulation had been relocated to the attic of the new Shed and much of the mess was cleaned up.  I hauled another Gator load of scrap lumber out for burning and made a mental note to track down my saw so I can get the big chunks of plywood cut up.  I also scrubbed off the exposed ICF so they were clean again (ICF exposed to sunlight oxidizes and the resultant yellowish layer kinda smells IMO).

Never did actually get as far as putting the new siding up, but I'll get there.....

You can see the big mouse nest in this section towards the middle. Wore my mask for this part.
There was a small mouse nest in one piece here, but most of the sections were untouched.
HUGE wasp nest in this section.....they had eaten out (well, at least chewed up) a good half of this square and built a intricate system of tunnels and such.
