The 90-10 Rule

The 90/10 rule comes from project management. The theory is that the first 90% of a project will take just as much time as the last 10% of the project, and you better plan for it. We're into the 10% of the shed now and wanted to dump some pictures here on how we got there.

This shed is really coming along nicely and I like how it's coming together. When last we left this shed, the walls were framed up and sheeted, and the roof trusses were installed. Next we put up the roof sheeting and started finishing the shed from the top down!

All trussed up and nowhere to go

fascia boards up

I'm skeptical about my roofing abilities

Sheeting is going up!

And we got the first bit of siding and molding up too!

really coming together!
Now it's time to get up there and shingle. Finish off that roof! Getting this shed "in the dry" is huge. This project is taking forever. But getting this far really puts us at the 90% mark.

Got the tar paper down

First couple of rows of shingles are down!

I approve of this roof

Ella got in on the action in her playhouse too

All done!

One happy roofer
Up next in the 10% part of the project, siding, molding, doors, and ramps to get inside. It's really starting to come together. Kelley really has been doing most of the work outside of the roof so my pictures got sparse. I'm ready to finish this sucker!

Wow, it's really coming along! I can see how a project like this is SO MUCH WORK, though! But it will be great when it's all done and you can start to use it!

Looks amazing so far, you are very handy.

That shed looks really good! I believe you guys are indeed amazing when it comes to doing projects like this one. I totally love the roof that you made, and I'm very excited to see the finished product along with its siding, molding, doors, and ramps. I hope that you can share it as soon as it's finished. Good luck! :-)
