While converting my garage into my shop, I realized I had to move all those lawn and garden implements out of the garage and into their own storage. I saw a photo of a cedar tool shed kit that was selling for over $600, and decided to build my own. I wanted to go with cedar instead of pressure treated, but the local home center only had 2 cuts of cedar,: 4”x4”x6’ posts, and 5 1/2” x 3/4” fence planks with slightly beveled edges on the top faces. No worries: I ripped the 4”x4”s into 2”x4”s and 2”x2”s as needed, and put it together with deck screws. End size is 2’ deep, 4’ wide, 5’6” high, just tall enough to fit under our deck. This is no heirloom, and with no sanding of finishing, took a day. I had left over adhesive ice damn sheeting and shingles to literally top it off, and some basic shed hardware as well. Fun.
