An Old-Time Garden Shed

The shed’s rectangular footprint measures 8 ft. 6 in. by 12 ft. 6 in.; a 4-ft.- 6-in.-deep porch faces the yard. Stick-framed with 2x4s, the shed is sheathed with 1×10 pine boards applied diagonally and exposed on the inside as finished walls. All 12 windows are made from recycled sash. An extrawide pull-down stair leads to a loft, which has dormers front and back. We built a bed into each dormer, with storage underneath.”

Shed Building at Fine Homebuilding

Today I watched this great video series on shed building at the Fine Homebuilding website. The only downside to the whole experience is that they require you to provide a bunch of personal information to join their 14-day free trial. I’m not sure if I’ll keep the membership after 14 days but I must say the videos were great and worth the hassle, in my humble opinion. They also provide a free download of the 10-page shed plans and the original Google SketchUp file.
