This is an original design of mine for a storage shed. This one is 10’ x 10’. The sidewalls are 8’ high with a loft that is approximately 4’ high. It was eventually painted barn red with white trim.

That would look great in my back yard, and I need the storage.

Nice job, even fits well in its surroundings.

Now why would a woodworker need more storage? lol! Looks great and I know you’ll fill it up before you paint it.

Oh, yes. I need one too. How about one say….... 30 by 40?

PCorl, how about some picture inside? Got any “in progress” shots?

Good looking work.

The inside is just typical 2×4 construction with 2×6 ceiling rafters. The rafters extend about 6” beyond the outside wall to give a nailing surface for the facia and soffit material. The siding is 5/8” thick T1-11 and all the trim is just construction grade 1 by ripped to fit the need. Sorry, no construction shots, I need to get better at documenting my work in progress.

Great detail, I like the peak extending beyond the top door, just like the originals.

Looks good, Do you mide me asking how much it cost to build? I’m shopping for a 12X16 shed and I’m seeing prices from $4000-$8000. OUCH. I’m going to try and convince my wife that I should be aloud to build one, but I haven’t priced it out yet. Is it worth it?

I built it a few years ago. If I remember correctly it was about $1500 – $1800 back then. I am sure it would be more now.

Thanks for shareing.
