Nice shed. I believe I could almost live in it if I ever ran into hard times. :)

Isn’t this a bit of an overkill for a tractor or 2? However for a workshop it would be great! Nice work on detailing.

Congrats on the building! Was it difficult to do the intersection of the two roof angles??

Been looking forward making a shed myself soon. Come on Spring, hurry up and arrive!!

Thanks guys. Jim , as you can see its an “L” shape. So I guess you would say its 12’x16’ with an 8’x3’ extension. I fit a Kubota B26 backhoe/ loader and a John Deere GX345 with a snow blower in there, with plenty of room to spare. It even has a nice size attic for storage. Now I just have to get some dirt and do the landscaping around it, but that will have to wait for spring. Thanks again everyone.

Nice looking shed. I was thinking that ought to be your shop but I looked at your workshop and you alread have a reall well equipped shop.
That barn is really well build. It could serve as wood storage to support your shop!!

You need a new word for that.

“Shed” doesn’t describe that thing.

Farm implement condominium, perhaps ? ;-)

It’s an excellent looking project !

Hey Carl, Just an observation on my part, and is only because I do this for a living (contractor). For the future… do not need headers on gable ends. The weight is distributed to the outside walls. Don’t worry it is a very common mistake. All around it is an exceptional job though. The cupola is a nice touch.
