    Going to clear up some room in the shop.

    so, I've got a pretty good size area of my shop that is taken up with sheet goods storage and a wood rack and some assorted boxes and stuff.

    I swear, why do I have so much in the way of sheet goods? I need to use this stuff up, but in the mean time, It would be nice to just have a place to store it where it's handy.

    So I bought an 8'x12' shed kit at Home depot. It should do the job nicely enough.

    I figured for the price of the kit, I'd have a hard time sourcing the materials and getting things cut out etc.

    It sure has been nice to just have all the parts pre-cut and ready.

    Made some progress this weekend. Just a few more steps to put the roof on and finish it up.

    You just need a covered porch for that dog house.

    Should be nice to have the extra space in the shop.

    Mee Tooo.

    I'm gonna be makin a 10x12 one of those this spring - that is if the snow goes away

    I priced the home depot 10x12 installed at $3000, and I priced the materials at about $1300.

    I will build, mostly cause I will get exactly what I want.

    Hah! Would have been done in short order, with fewer 'Whoops!' moments I'm sure.

    This kit was 999, but I had to buy some additional materials, such as 2x4 to make a sturdier floor and roofing.

    I learned that the instructions in this kit were right on the money and that they should be followed to the letter. Which is a little different that a lot of items like this.

    The say it'd be 1999 installed. I'm not sure if that means they deliver and drop off an already built one, or if a team would show up and build it on site.

    I figured why not do it my self and get the floor I want, put it where I want, and get the enjoyment of building it. I actually like doing things like this, and it's really not that difficult, but I didn't really hit it that hard since I had work/work to do as well as this over the weekend.

    Just thinking that with all the sun you get you could put a solar powered fan in there and you could make yourself your own wood drying kiln

    Cool idea, well executed Brent, there are times when it pays to buy a kit like that. Strangely I been thinking of the same thing to make space to get the garage organized, but I will have to move mine plus I would be breaking code due to existing she'd which landlord is using.
    cheers

    Glad you said it, not me. Well, excuses are rapidly running out. Should be plenty of room in the shop now to get through the final stage of it done.
