The trend in North American when it comes to outdoor sheds is those tacky plastic jobs from big box stores. I wanted something more attractive than that, something stronger and more durable too. This shed is based on one I saw in a Tauton Press book called “Building A Shed”. I framed it for windows but right now it’s for wood storage and there are no windows. I also beefed up the doors to make sure they wouldn’t sag over time. The shed is about 12 ft x 18 ft. The roof has a 40 degree (off the horizontal) pitch.
The cladding is Old Growth Western Red Cedar, a good weather resistant outdoor wood. I made my own V-joint tongue and groove siding using CMT router bits. The finish is a semi-transparent stain (does not flake and is easy to rejuvenate).
