painting the parts before the shed is assembled Section 9.1 What to paint

Now's probably the best time to paint the frames and plywood cladding.

You can slip-slap-slop paint all over the place without having to worry about all that tedious cutting-around where two contrasting colors meet.

Prop the frames up against one-another, spread the plywood panels out, and go for it.

I just used a charcoal fence paint for the frame and a gloss white for the plywood.

Section 9.2 What not to paint

You don't need to paint the insides of the frame and DON'T PAINT the tops of the rafters, as the tops of the rafters have already been marked for roof-board placement (section 8.1), and we don't want to have to mark them all over again.
