    Excellent start, Ken.

    As to your DAE file, are you referring to the forum software? I believe you can upload the SKP file (the file generated when you save the SketchUp model) instead. If you'd rather you could send me the SKP file by e-mail, too.

    And you don't need to make screenshots to get images to post. Just go to File>Export>2D... And choose either PNG or JPG as the file type.

    Got it. I can see a few issues with your model. Would you like to see what they are? And how shall I show you?

    Nothing to do with SkethcUp but, I would make accommodation for a little airflow on that bottom level if it is going to contact the ground/floor. I also found the need to slide my material out length-wise really hindered my ability to pick through stock for what I was after. Just food for thought. The variations and requirements for lumber storage are as varied as we are .

    Glenn,

    The bottom frame will be made of pressure treated 2x4s and it will be touching the concrete floor.

    Ken, the easiest way is to use GoToMeeting and talk either via the computer (microphone and speakers or headset) or telephone.

    We can try the telephone. No guarrantees about my ability to hear you on the telephone. My hearing ability on the phone varies by the natural pitch of persons voice and my hearing on a given day. When would you like to do it? I would need about 10 minutes before I could do it.
