Just finished staining this storage shed that I built. Shed is 10×12 with pine siding from a neighbors tree that fell in a storm. (rough cut pine, then ship lapped) Windows are hand made by an amishman. Handmade door latch with a railroad spike by myself.

In about 10 months time you will wish you had made it twice the size, I know, it happened to me. My shed is 12×20 and now I wished it was twice the size!

Good looking shed though!

No shed is ever big enough. Nice use of salvaged wood. I like the latch, too.

Welcome on LJs! Love the natural look of your shed, and of course that latch has so much character, thanks for sharing.

That is a very quaint storage shed. I love simple things that have function.
