Here is a cute little Modern-Shed Backyard Office we built in the fall of 2012 in North Vancouver.
We worked with the client to pick the right location in their yard, the right paint colour, siding type, deck configuration, you name it! And when the project was complete the client was ecstatic with the end result. It was the way every job should go 🙂
But and a big BUT… Not every project goes exactly as planned.
This North Vancouver Shed is located on a heavily treed lot that rarely sees the full light of day. Within a couple of weeks of the installation being complete, the client started to notice a black fungus / mold growing on the underside of the roof on the exterior of the shed.
When Kristen Hall-Geisler used to work from her home’s spare bedroom turned home office, she found herself wasting a lot of time. It got her thinking about a prefab writers studio.
“I would think, ‘I should be working. I should be writing this article,’” recalls Kristen, a freelance automotive writer and book editor. “Instead, I’d putter around and read and go downstairs and then realize I hadn’t gotten any work done.”
We often hear our customers ask us about rain screen and how it works with our open-joint siding — Oh, and what exactly is open-joint siding, why does it cost more and what the heck is Reveal Shield wrappin anyway?
We understand your confusion. So let’s break it down for you.
First of all, as we out here in Vancouver know, you need to protect your wall from the elements. Rain-screen siding is the first layer of defense against the elements, including rain, snow, sleet, wind and even the sun.
