Finally have completed my 10×12 storage shed. It’s taken me the summer working on weekends to do it, but I was in no rush.
This was the first time I had done any structure framing, besides building a deck, so it was a good learning experience, especially the rafters, birdsmouth cuts, ridge, roofing and shingling. It was also my first time using a framing nailer, and when working by yourself I found this to be an indispensable tool. Also toe nailing has always been my least favorite nailing, and with the Paslode nailer I bought for this project it was a breeze.
It’s not a large shed but it holds all the garden tools nicely, and gets them out of my garage workshop so that I can expand my workspace, which was the whole point in building it. Now I can rearrange my shop this fall and winter and set it up better.
The shed still has some minor trim under the eaves that I will add at some point, as well as building a potting table for my wife, and maybe some type of lattice to hide the foundation blocks, but for the main part it is done and time for the next project!!
