Dust Collector Shed #3: Siding done

02-09-2018 03:05 PM by FrogHouse | 0 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks. The new semester is in session and I am knee deep in assignments. (Just an FYI I am a 50 year-old student, working on getting that degree I should have gotten 30 years ago.) The good news is that I was able to finish the siding on the shed before the stuff got too deep in school. I have a couple of minutes and thought I’d share the progress. When last I posted, I completed the siding for the door. I used some cedar trim I had hanging around from an earlier project. T...

12x8 Shed #2: "Snow-Day" Gusset Plate Add-On

01-17-2018 07:18 PM by r33tc0w | 0 comments »

Well, NOLA froze over and the city shut down til about 10am today, figured I’d go in to the office to get some work done. However, the interwebs went down in the area and the guy who runs our printers helped me cut some gusset plates for the rafters out of some scrap 1/2” sign-grade plywood.I drew up the piece in sketchup which he translated in to Illustrator for the route path Tossed it up on the CNC And voila CNC is woodworking, just a different kind ;)

12x8 Shed #1: Planning, Site Prep and Foundation

01-17-2018 04:05 AM by r33tc0w | 1 comment »

Upon the realization how short we are on space in our home and with a 2nd on the way, my garage workshop-turned-storage-dump-zone is getting the boot to a shed in the backyard. Somehow my lovely amazing wife sacrificed her garden box i built 2 years ago for my own personal workshop to go in its place. There were some stipulations; had to look like Chip and Joanna’s shed at the Silos in Waco And couldn’t be more than 12×8 because of the mature camellia and japenese plum...

The "Shed" #4: Plans are meant to be changed

10-15-2015 11:59 PM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

There is what we want to do and what happens and lastly what happens to us and in the case of my shed workshop it has thoroughly had all plans halted in the most direct of ways. With a pretty straight lined change in my personal life I have been unable to make any progress on the shed since December of 2014 and it is looking as though my shed shop will be altered into a plain ole’ shed. Over the next few months, leading into winter, my life will again be changing as it has been throug...

The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 5 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements. These types of sheds have LARGE frame centers but they’re still set on a 16” center around the perimeter. So, it is just a matter of filling in the missing sections and tying everything together. As you can tell nothing too complicated about it ...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

Shed Raising

06-10-2013 02:44 AM by captferd | 8 comments »

Sometimes you have to put the wood work aside to take care of other stuff around the place. I’ve noticed online quite a few people wondering if you can raise or move a shed. Here’s living proof of how quick and easy it is. Normally I have one of my several gardens next to the shed as well but this year I had to put it off because the shed was sinking into the ground and being taken over by ground hogs. I had to raise it 4”. The shed is 10×20. Empty I figured it to be ab...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #8: Shingled the Roof - Now it's Done

04-07-2012 04:04 PM by Andy Panko | 3 comments »

Took me a couple of hours to put up the 30 pound roofing paper, and about half a day to do the shingles. I had never done shingles before, so I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take. I used just over three bundles of shingles, plus about a third of a bundle of ridge caps. I used Tamko’s Heritage 30 year architectural shingles – color is Natural Timber. Our house and shed were re-roofed in 2008 with these same shingles, so now every structure in my yard is visually ti...

Building My Kids' Playhouse #5: Framed the Roof

04-05-2012 12:11 AM by Andy Panko | 0 comments »

It took me a full day to get the roof framed…AND I had previously cut and marked the ridge beam and all of the full length rafters (ie those that didn’t intersect with a valley rafter. I knew the roof would be hard (because of the gable and valleys), but I didn’t think it would take a full day. I have a book on framing, and it tells how to measure, mark and cut hip rafters and intersecting rafters. But after reading it twice, I decided it would be quicker and ultimately...

Building My First Workshop/Shed #4: Shop Update: Walls and Roof Trusses

04-02-2012 02:13 AM by KylesWoodworking | 11 comments »

I just wanted to post an update on my progress so far. I decided to use vinyl siding instead of T1-11 for the siding and my uncle is giving me leftover metal roofing from his garage for free for the roof. I got 7/16” OSB to sheath the walls and roof. I got the sheathing on all the walls and then assembled all the trusses and started putting them up today, but then I got rained out before I could finish. The trusses are 16” O.C. with a foot overhang on each side. Here are some p...
