My hubby and son built a potting shed as a fun project this summer. They did the whole thing from scratch, even made their own trusses. It is a "Salt box" style.

They started of course with the floor. It is an 8x12 shed.

    Will you add electricity? If so, do you have any idea what the cost would be? I love it! You did a great job! I'd love to have one to use as an art studio! Enjoy!
