Aug. 6, 2005 - The old version of the Lumber Shed, with its faaaaahbulous salmon corregated tin wrapper.
Nov. 15, 2014 - And the renovated version, completed in spring 2013. This is the southeast corner, with bright orange umbrellas marking the space where Osteria Morini opened in November, 2013.
  May 26, 2016 - The Shed's southern face, with Agua 301, Whaley's, and Osteria Morini all open for business.
Sept. 28, 2014 - The northeast corner, with Ice Cream Jubilee having moved into the corner space in July, 2014..
Aug. 14, 2015 - A picture taken a few hours before southern-food restaurant Due South opened in the northwest corner of the Lumber Shed.
Aug. 14, 2015 - Due South's interior a few hours before opening (hence the stuff still lying around).
Aug. 14, 2015 - The view from inside Due South out to the Yards Park.
July 12, 2014 - Ice Cream Jubilee officially opened for business in the northeast corner of the Shed.
December 16, 2013 - Inside Agua 301 a few days before its official opening. (More photos here.)
December 16, 2013 - Peeking into Osteria Morini before the day's service gets underway.
A 1983 photo of the Lumber Shed, from the NCPC Yards Phase 2 design review. After years with a corregated exterior, the shed returned to this "naked" look in 2010.
Nov. 15, 2014 - A similar view, with Agua 301 now occupying the corner space.

A before-and-after-and-after of the Lumber Shed as seen from Poplar Point, looking north up Third Street, SE, first on March 3, 2005 (top), then and Jan. 8, 2012 (middle), then on Feb. 27, 2016 (bottom ). Note that the large bunnies were a temporary art exhibit, not an invasion. Note the changes to the building housing the Foundry Lofts and the Lumber Shed, along with the arrival of the Arris apartment building. Not to mention the appearance of the US Department of Transportation HQ. Click to see all available photos of this location.
December 7, 2008 - Standing at the recently built intersection of Fourth and Water streets, looking southwest into what will be the park. The Douglass Bridge is seen in the distance.
May 19, 2019 - The same location, with the Shed's renovation complete. The grass area at far left is to be the home to District Winery.  Click to see all available photos of this location.
July 17, 2008 - The less-than-inviting interior of the old Lumber Shed back when it was still the terra-cotta-colored building sitting in the middle of the park's footprint.
July 17, 2008 - The second floor of the storage shed, before.
July 17, 2008 - Looking down onto the shed's ground floor.
