With the recent posts about T-111 siding, I decided to link some pics on the
subject. Recently, my brother bought an inexpensive mobile home to rent, and
did an economical remodel using T-111 for the kitchen and bathroom cabinet
doors. The other 2 shots are of an enclosure I built for a customer to hide
the garbage cans and pool equipment, and to give his wife a place to keep
her garden tools and supplies, along with charcoal and grille, etc. He'll
let it weather for a few weeks, and then spray some stain on it. Click on
the small pics for larger versions.
Easy's getting harder everyday.
Thank you. I can't take credit for the idea, though. The customer saw the
T-111 on my workshop and asked if it could be used to make a privacy-type
fence along with a fully enclosed shed. I uploaded an additional pic that
shows more detail - ripping all those sheets was a real chore - on sawhorses
no less. I almost bought a panel saw for the job, but couldn't justify the
expense for one job. He's gotten many requests for my name, so the next job
will definitely get the panel saw. It's 30 feet long, 6 feet deep and 6 feet
high at the front edge, I was limited to a 2 inch pitch by the height of the
bedroom and bathroom windows, but don't expect a problem in that regard.
BTW - I like your site and will surely check it out. I have over 18,000 45's
& LP's that need to be digitized (after being culled for goodies). Also have
almost 40,000 mp3's I've ripped over the years.
Many times we think we need to start with a pile of lumber, and spend
good money on complicated plans. However, the photos show that with
some creativity, and t-111 you can make something very nice.
