Backyard Shed Build

I needed more storage space since I have a small house. I enjoy working in the garage, but there just isn't enough room for the tools I want to keep and use in there along with all the other storage 'stuff' that normally goes in the garage. So I built a shed with space to put decorations, bikes, camping gear and the like. The shed is 8x14' and sits on a concrete foundation. There was a shabby shed there with a pad already. I extended the pad and built the shed. Enjoy.

    Thank you, @Joe K, for explaining the process to me, and for your great advice. I am now more confident to try this project on my own!

      @Christine Kalicky No problem. Sheds are a good way to learn construction methods. I know there are websites and books that would give a step by step how to for framing and other processes. You can get away with a lot less on a shed, but I chose to construct mine the same as you would a house.
