I wanted to build a little garden shed for shovels and takes and such but I didn’t want a boring box ski this is what I came up with. Overall I’m pleased with how it turned out. I used reclaimed fence wood from my parents yard. I lined the particle board with roofing paper to help keep water out better.

That’s very creative and quite a conversation piece.

I liked the idea. I was in search of the same. If you like to suggest you to even add some limestone paving or a crazy paving in your garden area if you have some as it will help you make your garden more attractive. Recently I had crazy paving driveway in my place. It was being suggested by a well reputed company named as Parking Lot Paving Long Island you can even search for the same. I totally love the word dome by these contractors.

That is a great shed. I just wrote a post on building a garden shed. However, yours look almost like a lean to shed by being up against a house. I think it’s perfect and great looking and wished I saw it before I wrote my article. Nice that you used some older lumber also. Waste not want not I guess.

Have your say...
