I am considering moving into a TuffShed for my wood shop. I need to put a small window air conditioner and a dust collection system. Does anyone here have experience with setting up shop in a TuffShed?

I have a Tuff Shed that came with my house. It’s a smaller one, 10ft x 12ft or so. They are not badly built but if you know how to measure and cut plywood and 2×4’s, you could build your own structure for much cheaper.

I just use mine for storage, though.

Any kind of weight on the walls will cause them to sag, you would have to install plywood on the inside of the walls for strength. I had to add a piece of plywood on the inside to support 100’ of garden hose hanging on the outside.

We must be talking about different TuffShed products. The ones I’m familiar with are made of 2×4 framed walls with T1-11 sheathing and pre-manufactured roof trusses. They assemble the walls and roof in the factory and ship it ‘flat-packed’. It’s then unloaded from the truck and installed in about 2-4 hours by a couple guys.

Sagging walls sounds like an issue with one of those Rubbermaid plastic sheds. Totally different product.

Mine is not a Tuff shed but is from a competitor. 16×24 very happy with it. They poured a slab one day, after curing they had the building up and complete in 2 days. I had it wired. I insulated’ sheetrocked and installed a pellet stove. This was my 3rd winter. Just need it bigger.

I did talk to Tuff shed but they never followed up. I am very happy with it.

My Tuff Shed is a 24’ x 40’ garage/shop and I love it.
