Hi everyone , i finally had some time to finish my Garden shed this past week . It is 12’ x 10’ x 14’ high and has 13 windows , 12 hips and 8 valleys . I used chalet board for the siding and 1” rough pine to trim everything off .

Somehow, the word “shed” just doesn’t seem tp apply in this case. Beautiful!

I am curious about why you wanted so many windows in this type of building.

Wow, that’s nice, beautiful in fact. What are you going to put in it? The windows are low so I’m thinking it isn’t to house lawnmowers or anything big but I could be wrong. Will it have curtains? I just haven’t figured out what you have in mind yet.

Hi Charlie and Diane ,thanks . I wanted lots of windows because it has a great view from every angle and i want to use it as a TV room ( plasma ) in the summer then use it as storage in the winter . I am adding blinds to all the windows . Eventually it will be converted to a playhouse in a few years for my grandkids.

Great work John. After looking at your other projects, I’ve concluded you just can’t help yourself. You like the details and you are good at the details too I might add.

You know, with a little chimney and fireplace, you may not have to use it for storage come winter…

John, wonderful job. This is such a neat idea. I am sure that everyone of us would love to see the inside too. Enjoy the tv room and don’t forget the fridge, cold beer and salty chips.

Thanks everyone for all the great comments . Bob i don,t miss building house after house but i do enjoy always trying to come up with something different and challenging . One of the best things about woodworking is there are so many different things a person can do . I will post a inside view tomorrow once i get things organized and cleaned up.
