my shed


ok, you can see it now. its not finished, some little things to do.
but you get the idea.
what you see is pretty scaled back from what i wanted. i couldn't come up with ways to do what i wanted without spending a lot more $$$.
and i know i did at least one thing that i should not have, i was planning to compensate for that. that was just 1 $200+ cutback.
but i am going to put gutters on it, one of these days.

anyway.

Re: my shed


Tried to post this three times.
Shed built way to close to grade!
T-111 calls for at least 6" above grade!
No way would I have built it that close to the garage, now you have to weed wack and beat up the siding between the two buildings.
Sure looks like you use landscape timbers for the ramps, huge mistake, there not below ground rated and 0 support between the decking lumber you used.

THANX joe ! glad you like it

yeah. but thats the way i wanted it. i didn't want to climb into my shed, or use an EVIL KNIEVEL ramp.

thats SMARTSIDE panel, the osb kind. and it is heavily painted front and back. it was not the original plan to go that far down with it.

if i built it out farther, i would be eating up more of what is becoming a small'ish back yard. other than a lean to shed, that i didn't want, that is the most yard preserving place for it. i am going to put a fence between, just behind the garage window. more outside storage.

those landscape timbers are ground contact rated. and the ramp is plenty strong enough. and, while i can't forsee the future , its temporary anyway.
i am watching CL for pavers or stones to make a 1 piece walk and ramp.

Re: my shed


Do I see a wall blocking the window?

Don't that defeat the reason for a window, LIGHT.

editing: went back and looked again, what I thought was a wall, is actually a reflection of the fence on the glass.

All in all not bad for a first attempt, and it pleases you, that is the important thing, not what any naysayer thinks.

I personally like it.

Re: my shed


Around here that $4,000.00 would almost pay for one of those "TINY HOUSES", that I see on the HGTV program.

Placed on your property.

Re: my shed


Hard to see and I'm not sure if you've addressed it or not, but you're going to want to re-grade between the two structures so that water pitches out the front. Even with gutters, the space will turn into a trough if you're not careful.

Nice work, though.
