Building a storage building / small shop..please step in.


This is my favorite, Kevin. It has tutorials for all levels... and since I'm still a beginner in many areas it fits me fine.

You and pyper make a good point. I have these little pieces on my roof above the doors on my house that look something like angle iron. I'm sure I could find something like that. All they do is divert the water away from the place wher eyou would walk under them

As for the fascia all the way around, I think the thing they use is called a metal drip rail? I may be wrong.

Have you considered using a garage door (or some sort of wide, tall door) at the end instead of that side door?

Three reasons.

One, you are going to need some serious access to get completed projects out.

Two, it gives great light and venelation when you are working and/or creating a lot of sawdust.

Three, it leaves both long sides of your building free for storage of longer lumber... or as in mine, kayaks and airplane wings.

I have thought about a nice roll up door. I sure wish I could do it but I think they may be a little too expensive. I haven't checked prices really, but I figure they aren't giving them away..

Sometimes on Craig's List or Freecycle.com, they actually DO give them away for little or nothing. A lot of people close in their garages, and get rid of the doors.
