DIY Potting Shed

The idea to build a potting shed began with a seed -- a sentence, really -- that took hold in my partner's brain. There, it rooted and sprouted, growing into a longer-than-a-weekend DIY project. In short, the potting shed has a storage side, a potting side, a grow area, and a loft for storage. The original blog post ( features drawings and plans for the potting shed.

    You say you made this from fence pickets? Do you have the plans by chance?

    it's a beautiful shed, I'd like to make one. Can we have the link to the original blog, so we can get the plans? Thanks.

    The article says it cost $325 to build the shed. How is that possible with the cost of the glass?
