Nice beginning. Is there a footer, or is this on the ground?

Good work! Looks like this will be a great space to work and store stuff. What are the two gray rectanges in the back right corner?

You did all that in 1 day?

Interesting shed, but I find it tough to believe you got all that done in 1 day, unless you had an army of people helping you…

Very nice shed…more like a mini-house! I think I will send you a PM as I will start to build one within the next few days and have lots of questions. Mine is being built on a concrete slab. For now, I do have a couple of questions. Is the young man holding a Porter-Cable framing nailer? If so, how do you like it? I bought one for the build. For the price of sheds at HD and the like, I told my wife I could build one far cheaper BUT I was not going to be driving all those nails with a hammer (wink, wink). Next, I assume you manufactured the doors yourself? If so, how are they made and of what material? Thanks and again, great build.

thanks yes the young man (my son) is holding a Pc frammer 2 1/2 full round head. had it about 4 years now no issues with it,i oil it before and after use and it works great sometime ill spray the nails before i load them and never had a problem.the whole project ran about 3500. not realy that bad when you concider the option buying one built from 2×3s and 1xs. at home depot.the doors we did make they are 2×4 framming / T-111 skin and 1/2” cedar for the moulding on the outside.all the hardware bought online and that was a little costly.but good luck and post some pics so we can see. the rest of the pics are on photo bucket if can see them.

Thanks for the replies. A Bostitch nailer was recommened to me and would also be a good choice but I read great reviews on the PC. Thanks for the suggestions on oiling it, etc.
