Here is the shed I built the other week. Isn't it splendid?
I didn't have a plan. I made it up out of my head as I went. The idea was to make as few cuts as possible. That is why it is so tall. I thought I could build it in less than two days. I almost did but then I started working again at the furniture warehouse (25 hours in two shifts, even) so it ended up taking a week. The shingles were the time consuming part. I was worried during construction because the whole thing was pretty wobbly but it came together very strong. Minnow helped me lift the plywood on to the roof and he referred to it as "The tougher than Tuff-shed." I know it was several thousand dollars cheaper than Tuffshed.
My whole life, my granpa was known for saying things like, "Oh, hah; I s'pose; and If I build it, I will walk on it." I've decided to carry on that tradition.
We have enough room in our house for regular living but not for any of the things that I like. My stuff is what clutters our living room. So I built the shed and that's where MY stuff will go. Bikes, boards, books, music stuff. It isn't insulated yet but give me time. I will also add electricity.
What you see is Phase 1. Phase 2 involves building a greenhouse on the backside. For those of you worried about appearances, I will also soon add trim to the front and finish adding a metal drip-edge around the entire roof. Once that is done it will look good and I am confident that you will all want to make out with me.
