Thanks gizmodyne
This is my own design so i am drawing plans as i go .
I find it easier to build something then draw the plans later.

Nice framework, well built. What type of siding on this garden shed project? Any skylights for light?

Here are a few progress pictures.
I decided to add 4 more windows to make a total of 15 windows. Can never have enough light. lol
The total height is 15 ft
Half of it is made from reclaimed wood and the other half will be new wood.
