Rebuilding an old shed

When we bought this old farm from year 1827 we knew there will be lots of rebuilding. Last year we changed the roof on the house and this year we are focusing more on the out buildings. The shed which was closest to the road was in a very poor rotten stage so that is where we started.
First was to take off all the old rotten planks and to strengthen the structure. After that screwing on new planks.
Before painting it I first applied a good coat of oil.
 I have build 2 new doors which surprisingly fit well since Im not a skilled carpenter :)
Now its only left to place the rain gutters and paint the concrete base with black paint. Off to a new project ...
