I love the look from the outside.

Could you post more pics? Of the inside and some detail of the joinery? Was it made from a kit, or did you start by cutting down a tree?

I’m not sure I ever found myself thinking “Wow. That is BEAUTIFUL” about a shed, before.

But it is. Really.

And … yeah … more pics and more info would be great !!

Great looking shed! Add me to the list of folks who’d like to see the inside and some construction details. I’d like two sheds like this. One for storage, and one with hardwood floors, a fireplace, air conditioner, entertainment center, and time to kick back for a cold one!

As requested here is some more info:
The plans for this shed are loosely based on plans from The Family Handyman magazine issue June 2001. As for pics inside will try and take some at some point today, but as my neighbor suggest you’re going to wish you built bigger once you start putting all your stuff in there and he was right. It is 10×18’, but the key is the truss design which allows for lots of storage up top, presently storing lumber. If ya still want more info send a note.

Everytime I build a shed I build a bigger one and its still too small. So I have developed this formula for calculating how much space I need.

First figure whats going in it, then double that, then addd %10, and most important, when you build it use the cheapest materials you can find so you have enough money left over to build another one. Its never big enough!
Good Day JTMEK
