    Got to cut decking to cover the garage door here then possibly surrounding. Is it best to cut the angles by running a piece of wood off the angle onto the wood and marking it then cutting on chop saw? Free hand it 20191106_130859.jpg

    Going to out it on batons with 16inch centres

    Might help if you got yourself a sliding bevel to transfer angles

    You can get cheaper ones if you insist

    Is that the timber you're using in the pic? If so is it treated or are you planning to paint it?

    Are you going to batten onto the doors, (after removing those trellis's), or are you battening across the outer frame and then fitting vertical battens at 16" centres?
    Have you got enough space behind the shed to use tools or are you going to make a frame that will slide behind when constructed? Will the boards be horizontal from side to side or are you setting them at an angle, (say 45 degrees)?

    Is that subsidence crack in the wall a long standing issue?
