Here is a board and baton shed that I built this summer. The main concept was taken from the Family Handyman website. The bigger section is 8’ x 8’ with the smaller section being 5’ x 8’. The smaller section has a change room for the pool. The doors are raised panel oak with glass in the top (frosted for the change room). I built the windows with recycled/free glass. The change room sports a walnut switch cover and walnut bench. It was a fun build, questions and comments welcome. here are a few more construction pics.

That’s a little too nice to be called a shed. With just a little more trim work inside, you could have the best family cave around. One thing I want to build is an outside family room, with a big screen TV on the wall and I can stream video from the house using wi-fi and my computers and X-Box to watch movies, access the internet and turn the family room into a complete entertainment center. A window air-conditioner built into the upper part of the cabin will keep it cool in the summer and a small wood stove will keep it toasty in the winter.

Very Nice shed.

I built a similar style using the lesser side as a green house. If your like me you’ll find no matter the size , shoulda built it bigger.But then I have a lot of garden tools.

Nice, nice!

I love it. I think I recall that issue and I liked the idea; wonderful to see the plan in use. Great job on it; I bet it lasts forever, from what I see of your construction
