Hi everyone , Here are a few progress pics of my new shed.

I had a few skids of 1/2” x 6” plywood lying around ( free wood ) so i decided to use it for the exterior walls .
Then i will use 4×8 sheets of Chalet board over that and then trim everything with 1” rough pine.!
50 percent of the shed is made from reclaimed wood.

Neat looking shed John. Did you just start banging or is this patterned after a bird house?

Thanks Karson
I did a playhouse with a very similar design but this one is twice the size.

I have had a lot of people ask me if this was going to be a birdhouse .lol
They must think i,m nuts.

That’s really neat, John. It looks like most Victorian houses; they got to going and couldn’t find a place to quit. Seriouly , it must take a pretty good plan to do something like this. It does look like fun.LOL

Thanks Thos.Angle
I try to make it as complicated as i can and then i will draw up plans for this one later.

I usually get a idea and then it just comes together.

I saw this and said to myself “John’s extreme birdhouses” and sure enough—it’s one of your projects, John.

VERY cool. LOVE it.

What is Chalet board?

Good job John and a tribute to your thought process.
You always seem to see the “unique” in building a structure.

That is one sweet shed!!
Very eye catching and a great way to recycle that wood.

Thank you MsDebbie and Bob
I am always looking to build things a little different. lol

MsDebbie Chalet board is a exterior plywood that looks like vertical siding .
They cost about $ 35.00 a sheet .4×8
The shed will look similar to this but twice the size.

This sheething is supposed to be good for 30 – 40 years.
I did the playhouse a few years ago and it still looks new.

Thanks David
This stuff i use looks like chip board on the inside and it has some type of finish on the outside.
It is supposed to last for 30 – 40 years.
