There was a open roofed area off the garage that the last homeowner had thrown together with varies woods he must have been collecting.
We had a shed in the yard but want to use the space for a swing set so we thought if we utilize the space off the garage and rebuild it a little deeper it would make a nicer shed and it would free up a 12×10 space in the yard.
I made it all doors so that every area is accessible and this would help not to collect unwanted items in the back of the shed. It’s deep enough to park an adult bike straight in.
All of the framing wood came from the vinyl shed’s base platform. The doors are the grooved plywood from HD. I sprayed them white and then framed the pattern out of 2×4’s . The arches are made from ply. The method for the arches are from Tom Silva. I have since added a gutter because I don’t want the dripping rain water to dirty the doors.

Paul, that shed is bound to pay you a lot of dividends.
