« Part 2: Purchasing the Material Part 3 of Building a Shed series Part 4: Build Day 2 »

I started the first building day by assembling the two floor pieces and one of the window walls. Got the window all framed in and I am ready for the next building day.

Looks fun. I’m desperate to carve out enough time to build a workshop shed of my own.

I need to ask. Why not pressure treated for the foundation?

I love the picture with the shop dog waiting for a proper shop to sleep in! Great progress, looks like a good time.

db I think I know why. If you flash back to the first to segments of the blog, you will notice that he bought piers. so in theroy that means the shed is off the ground and not pt wood is needed

I was wondering about your floor. I usually see the 2×4’s oriented 90 degrees from the way you have them. Just like you did for the walls. Is there a reason why you chose to orient them differently?

Actually Yes Sarit. I had to turn them to lay flat so that when i assembled the shed together with bolts the bolts would be able to go through the 2×4 with out splitting them. So far it has worked out great.
And Rookie is correct the shed is sitting on pressure treated 4×4 that are about 6 inches off the ground.

The dogs lounging around is my favorite part. A man can never have too many sheds.
