The Shed Project

Handy Man has decided that he wants to build a shed this summer. This is to store some of his "toys" in, like his lawnmower, snowblower, etc. It is also for storing the generator, which we seem to need to use a lot over the winter.

First, he built the deck platform. It measures 8x12, and Rob was careful to make sure that everything was level. He used 2x10 pressure treated wood, with concrete deck blocks in the corners and on the edges.

I didn't happen to get any photos of Rob building the platform, but I will get some pictures of him building the rest.

Rob has some vacation time coming up soon, and he is hoping to build the walls, the roof, etc. He thinks that he is going to finish it over vacation, but we'll see. I'll have to add this to his Honey-Do List.

Have you ever built a shed before? We did look into buying a pre-made shed, but the prices were exorbitant!
