Build your own. You don't need a kit.

Pick your own lumber, build your own design.

I just built one for myself over the last couple of weekends.

It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.

Yep somewhere in the cobwebs of my memory I knew that. Don't know how I could forget something as obvious as that.

Hey tcleve:

Thanks for asking.

Please remember it's a MUCH smaller version! Compared to Norm's.

As soon as I get interior remodel done I plan on starting another "NYW" build in the back yard. Due to permit restrictions 144 sq ft is largest possible w/o requiring a permit. (I am not sure on what dimensions to build, square vs rectangle?)

This new shed would give me more room to get our garage under control. I would like the bigger shed to be a woodworking shop with power and water and other used just as our garden shed. Wife needs a potting bench added and storage.

BTW, I called this my "New South Workshop". LOL
