My new deck and bicycle shed

I needed to replace my old deck, so I tore it off and built this new one. I don’t like walking on pressure-treated wood, nor do I like working with it, so I used spruce and stained it (on all sides). It should last a long time, but in case I need to replace the odd decking board, I screwed them all down.
While I was at it, I designed and built this “bicycle shed” that I store my snowblower in during the winter, as it is much closer to my driveway than my detached garage/workshop.

Wow, nice. You just gave me an idea for my deck, since it needs redone, maybe I can incorporate something like this.

Beautifully done!

My fleet includes four of my bikes, and two of my wife’s, so … I’d have to use the shed for people, and the house for bikes :-D

Great looking builds, though. The two door solution on the shed is really clever!

I like your shed build. (The deck is nice too!)... What are the dimensions on that shed? I am considering building 2 similar to that, in order to be able to call them “yard boxes” to avoid permit / HOA problems… One to keep my lawn & garden equipment / supplies in, the other for BBQ equipment / supplies.

Hi, db,
I haven’t got the exact measurements-I’ll go outside with the tape measure tomorrow..
The shed is about 76” long, 36” deep (the 30” snowblower barely goes in the end door) and about 74” tall at the back.
As soon as I have the exact numbers, I’ll post them here.
Thanks for the nice comments…
