Milestone reached! Shed Door Finished and Hung!

Finally, 2 years 2 months later from pouring the foundation, I have finished the door and hung said door on the Shed of Requirement.  This glorious shed I’ve built from foundation up, assembled without power tools, carried stone by stone,  pound for pound 220 feet from the driveway to the site.  The door was supposed to open outwards, but due to geometry restrictions on Gothic doors, it couldn’t open. Not a design consideration I had on my list.  Nonetheless, the door now is hung and opens inwards. If it hits anything, it is a sign I have too much shit in the shed.  With the lifespan of the shed targeted at 200 years, the door is expected to be the first to require replacement in 20-40 years.  Now the shed isn’t done yet, there are many hours left to do.

The inside is a Catalan Vault roof, well, technically a hogbacked oblong dome. I had to attempt the hardest variant. Note, I can lay 7 tile per hour to make that roof.

Shed of Requirement now has a door! Stained cedar door made with hand forged nails cleated thru, and a handle I forged this summer at summer camp.
