    I like it and would like to make one for our cottage up North. We don't have a barn or a shed. I also thougt of making a small one to hang on the front door.

    Wow! It is gorgeous... Yeah, here in Texas we do call them sheds, regardless of size. Such a wonderful gift! Was it a surprise? People will think of you everytime they lay eyes on it..

    The strong design connects the (rather plain) steel shed with the decorated barns of the past....Is it on metal or some type of plywood or.........?

    Thanks for your sweet comments. It's made of pre-treated plywood. I also used pre-treated 2x4's on the edges to help keep it from warping. It is 6' x 6' and weighs about 150 pounds! I primed it well using exterior primer. I used exterior paint to paint it and put several coats of a sealant on the top. Hope this is helpful.

    Oh, yes the name of this block is the "North Star." My parent's last name and my maiden name is North. I used red, white, and blue because my dad served a few years in the military and is very partial to our servicemen and women!
    and one for the front door is a FANTASTIC idea!! Think how nice it would look hanging on point!
