Siding back of shed with no room
So I'm in the process of salvaging a shitty shed that was neglected when I bought the house.

This is the type of shed, 10' being the front with the doors and back side and 12' being the sides:




I'm in the process of replacing the siding and re-framing the back side (opposite the doors)- termites got to it. My problem is this back side is about 10" from the wood fence behind it and I cannot move the shed. I need to get some siding on this side somehow without really being able to access it. Is there any type of bracket or tie in that will let me attach siding outside the studs but from the inside of the shed? Some type of special screw? I've browsed around the decking and siding areas of Home Depot with no luck. TIA.

Can you remove the fence boards and screw them back in when finished?

I should have been more specific. It is on the property line and there is a chain link fence on my side and then the neighbors wood fence abutting up to ours. Chain link needs to go eventually but that would only gain me a couple inches and I need to get this shed tied up so I can store shite in there before the next project. So no, removing wood boards isn’t an option unfortunately.

Remove neighbors boards carefully, cut out the section of chain link fence you are going to remove anyways, put siding on shed, put neighbors boards back up.

You'd probably want to get their permission first, of course.

This would be the best answer.

Just save yourself the headache and buy a new house.

Yep, sometimes you've got to hold their hands and walk them through it.

Install the siding with studs on the siding that are offset so that they will line up exactly next to the structure studs. Slide in from the side and then attach the Siding studs to the structure studs from the inside.

You probably could get away with using a 2x2 rather than a full 2x4.

He'd better have some help with some muscle on them. A 12' x 6'- 8' wall, framed and sided won't be an easy task getting it slid into place with 10" of wiggle room to work with.

Oh, and it damn sure better be framed to fit the first time or it gets exponentially harder.

Could probably do it as 6 ft sections, half the weight and slide in from each side

Why can't it be moved? Even if you had to jack it up to help facilitate.


Seems like I'd not want any building to only have 10" of wiggle room behind it.

No doubt! I was just providing a means to the end. I assume he can muster the resources needed.

re: Siding back of shed with no room
Where the previous owners put the shed leaves almost no room to maneuver it, and the condition of the shed probably means it shouldn’t be moved lest it gets damaged beyond repair. This shed needs to survive for about two more years until we can replace it. We have an enclosed patio that is being demolished for being the crappiest leakiest piece of shite in the world and are moving bikes and a couple power tools into the shed until we demo the entire backyard/shed/fences and start from scratch. So definitely a band aid but necessary.
