    And after 2 days of calling around, apparently Covid has also created a shortage of steel shipping containers. None available for short term rental’s at all, it is purchase or nothing.
    And in checking around, looks like purchase price has at least doubled from 2 years ago. 🙁

    Finally got around to putting knobs and pulls on the Kitchen cabinets. The delay was due the wifey not liking the knobs and pulls she bought when she got the cabinets. With Covid it was difficult to return the ones she purchased and buy new ones. She end buying somewhere else.
    The Kreg cabinet jig made this job much easier.

    2 more windows trimmed on the outside today. Got an early start and slogged through it. I’m beat now, but there is only 1 more of the purchased windows to do and then the 2 I built. That’s it for the top floor.

    I had thought I had properly figured out the window configuration for the upper area of my shed build I am building, but I discovered a critical error just before I was about to start cutting pieces.

    Had I went ahead I would have had unremovable sill plate pieces that hold up the rafter beams showing thru the windows for 3 inches. May have been passable looking at the structure from the outside, but definitely would have looked stupid from inside the shed and offered less light to flow thru.

    Redesigned it all this afternoon and started cutting components and making a mock-up of the custom windows I am building.

    The window spans just shy of 8 feet and will be centered along a 10 foot span.

    @Doobie, not many folks would ever think of building their own custom window. Congrats on the creativity and effort.! Looking forward to seeing it installed.

    That was the plan here, but a 20 footer. Turns out between the shortage of available containers, and the higher cost if one is found – we decided to go with at pre-built shed for now.
    Lower cost and more space. Just for short term storage over the winter and then it will probably be converted to a playhouse for the grandchildren.

    Thanks! We are quite happy with the Ikea cabinets. There much better now with knobs and pulls install.
    I have couple of more things to do and the kitchen will be completed.

    Doing the trim on the last vinyl window. What a PITA! This is the only one that I have to modify my method this way. So that makes 4 different ways I had to do the trim so all the windows look the same. Naturally, I cut one piece too short so had to remill one, a further PITA because it’s critical that the thickness of the boards on each layer be the same. I had to go through the pile and find one thick enough so it would mill to the proper thickness.

    Having a coffee now before I go mental. Will get back to it in a bit.

    Good to hear you had no issue with sanding off the chalk paint.

    A 1/4 sheet sander was the first sander I bought many years ago. I don’t use it that much. It is nice to have for certain jobs.
