A shed can be used to store anything used for working outdoors, such as paint, spare wood and lawn implements. To make sure they are secured within the shed, you'll need a sturdy door with a lock. If your shed door is broken, take steps to replace it as soon as possible. Installing a replacement shed door is fairly easy for do-it-yourselfers. Remove the old door by unscrewing the hinges from the shed structure, using a screwdriver. Take off any latches that may be attached to the shed. Measure the dimensions of the door with a tape measure. Write these measurements down with a pencil.
yer jest nun two brite are ya??... LOL!!!... I don't need to do that.... I just hook the dog's chain up to the hole where the door fell off of and nobody's gonna fool around with any of the stuff in there, and the dog will have a nice dry spot to hang out, too......This message has been edited.

I've been wondering what I might do with all the dog hair that my dogs shed. I had never thought that one could maybe weave it into something to contain paint, spare wood and lawn implements. I just know that screws would not hold the doors into the shed hair...but maybe Dabney can help me figure something out.
Curious? Never have heard the name Dabney before...is that a nick name or just a misspelling?
I think that "friendly real estate investor" with the island for sale, on Divine design board might be in need a shed and doors for it. Hope he sees this.
Conrad I once knew a guy in the USAF but his last name was Dabney.
Me thinks Dabney has several names here at HGTV and DIY.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
this is in response to conrad's question about the name 'Dabney'. my favorite nursery that is on the stateline between Tennessee and Mississippi is called 'Dabney's Nursery'. i doubt the two are related, cause the Dabney at the nursery is constantly busy and doesn't have the time to post on here. he is GERMAN and has a brother and a sister. both have strange names to us, but they are wonderful people.This message has been edited.

stilltryin...maybe your shed landed at my place. I've had a hard time keeping my DH from building more of them! We have 4 now plus a warehouse, plus a shop, plus a covered work area. Did I say my DH is NOT organized??? He drives me nuts. And I have threatened if one more "structure" shows up....he goes!!!!!!!!!!! (kidding)
