    LOL It took me a while to understand your post but that's funny. Thanks, I corrected the spelling error.

    NEVER use cardboard boxes in a shed . Roaches love cardboard boxes and they absorb moisture . Use plastic storage containers with tight fitting lids .

    Depends. Is the she shed going to be a storage unit or a quiet get away?

    A lot of debate and thought went into that. The use of a common house door was decided on because they are easily available and will make a tight seal. I will not be able to get a big wide tractor or lawn mower into it but it's not intended for that. It's made to house the things we will be removing from from my wife's house. Anything coming out of her house will come out of a normal house door. Hence, it will also fit into the normal door size of the shed. We also decided against windows. The only window will be the small one on the door and one sky light in the cieling. All wall space will be used for storage of vertical items like furniture. If I need to enter it at night I'll bring a flashlight.

    Make the shed more girly and inviting (windows). She may decide it has more use to her without all the junk inside

    Nevermind

    Just out of curiosity, what is the experimental drug?

    Anti burglary mothballs. I thought the Hague or Geneva conventions outlawed that.

    It rained so they did not work that day. One carpenter wretched his back causing another delay. I'm told it will be just be a few more days. They are doing a good job; I'll pay them considerably more than I told them I would.

    It's called "Zydelig" and made by Gilead Sciences. it's a targeted drug that goes after the cancer not the rest of your body.

    I'd get a piece of aluminum flashing about 6-8" wide, break it lengthwise and put it where the roof nose dives. Shingles over the top portion, shingles under the bottom portion. Our previous shed was a barn shed and the shingles cracked and fell off...leaks. And some gutters to direct water away from the sides.

    I plan to install a ridge vent. By "nose dive" do you mean where the roof gets steeper? The guy building that shed has a lot of experience with roofing. I'll ask him about the point of inflection.

    That's the place. The shingles don't like to bend that much. The aluminum takes care of that. Even if the upper portion just hangs over the lower lower, the shingles will bend/sag over time and crack/break. Actually, a second piece of aluminum that extends into the gutter would help since the overhang doesn't look to be very much. I can spend your money all day long...lol.

    I'd be a bit concerned about it being your future doghouse.
