Needed a place to store garden stuff and bikes so I could have more room in my woodshop (garage). This was fun due to the scale. Highlights: clear panel in center for a skylight, and the corrugated roof.

Great idea, I need something like that for wood storage, got some big slabs taking up to much room in the shop!

I need that, too! It looks good, nice work.
We already have one shed that is 100% in my wife’s zone.

What are the nominal dimensions of your new shed?

that is utilizing space to the max – with the skylight, no need for electric
cedar ?

Don’t want the lawn mower or motor cycle in the shop or garage so this would work out just right.
great idea!!!

Nice use of given space Brittany. Is that a trap door on the back side?

You get a zoning variance for that thing?

Nice project. I did that once on the side of my garage. Neighbors called the building department on me and I had to take it down. Hope your neighbors are nicer than mine.

Larry- yes, so we can access the fence behind the shed if needed. No zoning variance due to where it sits on our property and the height. Thanks everyone!

Great use of space Brittany…I like the sloping roof from the fence. It gives you that little bit extra height to create a bit more space. Well done!!!!!

It is always nice when you can clear as much out of your shop that is not related to woodworking. Nice work.

- gargey

I like the “doors”. Instead of needing a zoning variance; does it meet local building code? I question the integrity of this project and I feel that it is a threat to the community, due to high winds or an earthquake- off it goes like in the “Wizard of Oz” and back then they didn’t have tie down straps.

Looks very skilled built and more important there is more space in your garage left.
