Disassemble shed for painting?

    I have a new wooden 6x4 shed on a concrete base right up against the corner of a wooden fence. I'm planning to paint the fencing and the shed. Is it worth trying to move/disassemble the shed to get to the hidden part of the walls and fence or should I just paint what is visible?

    Also I don't know if the shed is dip or pressure treated. It was installed by the developer. It has a 'raw' wood look to it so I'm thinking probably pressure?

    Get a friend in , its a 6 foot shed so you'll be keeping safe. Move the ( empty)
    shed enough, brush off any already accumulated dirt then liberally treat the two sides
    with a preservative. When you shove it back, keep in mind the inevitable re-roofing.
    Space considerations and area of concrete base will ( probably ) not allow future
    walking round the sides but even a gap between roof eves and next door's fence
    will give the person changing the felt a chance. Can do the fence at same time as
    that won't get done again till shed dies.
