Jo-Anne Peck, co-owner with her husband Craig of Historic Shed, recently turned over the keys to the shed they built at the May-Stringer Museum. Built on a concrete slab, the structure has details that Jo-Anne designed to match up with the main building. The rafter tails are like those on the house. The metal roof and paint colors are also coordinated. The roof sheathing is composed of wood planks, not plywood. The custom-built doors are of almost indestructible cedar. The sturdy and handsome door hardware was crafted in England and comes from Abbey Trading.
As many will remember, there was a fire in the last storage sheds two years ago. The Museum Association is so pleased that we saved our pennies and Historic Shed was able to build this great building for us. Thank you to the Pecks and their crew for the fine job of blending the building to maintain the look and atmosphere of historic Brooksville.
