I’ll post pics as its being built. 14’ x 20’ x 8’ and 4’ of storage on top. Sheds or barns are fun to build and easy with a couple of farmhands.

Hmm doors overlook the pool,, can you say “distracting”? Seriously though, looking good.

Ah ha! There’s someone else out there in woodland who has the same excitement and headaches as I do!
Well Blue, the fill dirt trucks start rolling next week in prep. for my foundation. Today two signs were added to my yard listing the contractor and permit number and I have a bunch of little red flags where the driveway extension and shop will be. We’re havin’ fun aren’t we?

Yea its fun, Calgirl. I got sore toes from all the times I stumped those screws sticking out of cement slab, but that pain is gone forever.

I just thought of an option. I’m going to hang a barn pulley from ceiling and a crank wench to the side wall for lifting a small platform up to storage area so I dont have to carry it up ladder. I’m so smart! lol!

When its not in use I’ll hoist it all the way to ceiling.

Any ideas as far as color? Please give me some ideas.

The pool is great, fantastic, but theres a 3 and a 4 year old running around, so maybe in a few years. Something to wash off all the sawdust.lol

This shed/shop/barn, is easier than I thought, just takes time, use it wisely it will be done in a week.

Farm hands are gone, I just need to finish up with details, 110/220, paint, etc. Looks like a basic shed, I like it. I need to turn some door handles and the hinges are not what I wanted so I’ll replace those with some huge old barn style iron.
