My Shed

I built it last fall (8'x12') but just got around to getting it organized. I still need to finish up some of the trim and apply another coat of paint but you get the idea. Build a small bench, some shelves and installed some peg board. I don't intend to to any actually work out there just a place to store all of the yard supplies to free up some room in the garage.

Very Nice! We need to build one real bad--that garage is just a wreck. Been looking at the store-bought kind, but I've been trying to convince Hubby just to build one himself. I didn't think it would be that hard for him--thank you for posting this so I can show him!

Very nice... wanna build me one PLEASE

Did you build it from a kit or just buy the wood, etc and build your own? Did you pour a concrete slab for the floor?

I am looking to build one soon (hopefully) and am looking to see how others have done theirs.

I build it from scratch. Although if you go to my local Lowes you will find the exact model. I saw a style I liked at Lowes and then copied it. I saved about $500 by doing it myself and I know it is build better.

As for the floor I just sunk some 4x4's to below the frost line and encased them in concrete. Then attached the the treated 2x6 to them. If you want I can email you some plans that I drew up for it (construction in Michigan in the winter is pretty slow). They are not exact but will give you a pretty good idea of what I did.

Charli, do what my wife does when she wants me to build her something. She fills up ever cooler I have with beer and then says, "while your drinking all that beer maybe you could slap together a few 2x4's". Works everytime.

looks good. I've got a 1500 S.F garage and I still find myself wanting to move all the garden equipment out. Maybe a small lean-to would suit me.

Dang, that is an exact replica of the one from Lowes (lol). I think you have out done the Chinese on this one. You can buy one installed for $2400 at lowes.

That is why I did it myself, it only cost me about $1,000. You should have seen me out there taking measurements and pictures.
