This is a wood storage room I built under our deck once I had the water drainage system under the deck floor pretty reliable. The dark red pipe in the top of the first picture is PVC pipe cut in half lengthwise to catch the water draining from the chutes made from aluminum flashing installed in cedar guides that taper down from the far end. It catches almost all the water coming through the deck floor.
I needed to get the rack of wood out of my shop to make way for the new jointer a few years ago so I built this room with a locked door and a recycled picture window that I could not even give away to Habitat for Humanity. I added a few of the early pictures of how I built the foundation. The floor is treated plywood and it sits on a level bed of pea gravel which makes it pretty solid. It is just outside the basement shop so it is real handy to get wood. I try not to throw any good piece of wood away. I go there often to get small pieces for projects. The door is made from tongue and groove pine carsiding and I learned how to install vinyl siding on this project.
