Old growth Fir and Redwood, most of it was milled on site. There is a fun background story that would take far too long to tell, but the short version is that a place was needed to store some equipment, so why not overbuild a storage shed right?
Figured some here would appreciate it.

It’s too beautiful to use as a storage shed. Some electricity, plumbing, internet connection and you’ve got a first class man cave.

Actually, how about a few more pictures. I need a building too and I like yours more than any other small utility building I’ve seen.

I’d be camping alongside the tools…. brewing coffee and burning eggs on a Coleman stove, and spending my mornings on that deck in a comfy lawn chair… calling life good.

I should have mentioned that it is my uncle’s shed, not mine, I did not want to misrepresent the project. I was impressed and thought this forum would appreciate it.

As to the questions and comments:
@bluekingfisher – yes it will keep out bears, you should see the door (made out of a sinker log), however bears will not be much of an issue because it really is an equipment shed, no kitchen or anything,

@HalDougherty – the location is far off the grid, so internet is out and electricity is a problem, I think a well is planned in stage IV, and solar is not really an option because those trees make a lot of shade.

@ssnvet – that is the general idea.

Ill get more pictures for you.

Have your say...
