I built this shed all of cedar this weekend to keep wild animals from knocking over the cans and making a mess. Should do the trick. Also looks a little better than just free standing trash cans.

Excellent. Now they will take up residence inside. LOL

Handsome structure, and well done! On my list of things to do, at the new homestead.

Very well done and excellent design work too.

Just curious; how expensive was the material?

Thank you for the comment. I cost a little over $400.00 for all the materials. It’s actually quite large and I even used cedar 2X4’s for the frame. The floor is pressure treated wood.

I thought about this today and wanted to throw this idea to you. For the tops instead of a wooden bar you could use hydraulic pistons like used on a car hood or better for a rear hatch on a SUV, they usually are stronger.

Just an idea…

Thank you for the comments. I actually just bought a few of them today to give it a try. I’m not sure about the placement but i’m sure i’ll sort it out. They come in many sizes and strengths so it will be a bit of trial and error.

I’ll post an update if I get it to work properly.

Little trial and error and your head will thank you in the future.
