    Garden Shed (progress pics )

    Hi everyone , Here are a few progress pics of my new garden shed.
    It is 12' x 10 ' x 14 ' high and will have 15 windows.

    I had a few skids of 1/2" x 6" plywood so i used it for the exterior walls then i will cover that with 4x8 sheets of Chalet board and use 1" rough pine to trim everthing.

    For some reason, when I saw "garden shed" and your name together, I had a sneaking suspicion the shed would look unlike any other.

    This is gonna be a fun one to watch as it gets finished out. Please feel free to post as many pics as you want, John.

    Thanks again Vaughn.
    I always try to build something different each time and i had a lot of people in my area asking me if this was going to be a birdhouse.

    I was looking for the holes for the birds! Great looking shed. Neat to see someone stepping away from the norm!

    Thank you Ed
    The thought had crossed my mind to make it look like a large birdhouse.

    John, it looks good so far. A little too fancy to be a shed but very nice.

    Are you taking a break from birdhouses?

    Thanks Dave
    I might use it as a office for my birdhouses for now.
    It has a great view plus it has too many windows to be a shed.

    I am going back to building birdhouses this week. i have a 9 ft birdhouse that is about 3 or 4 days from completion and i still have a order to fill for 11 more birdhouses by next June.

    John... Do you call that a shed?? I wonder what would you call a house

    Good job and really impressive, when are you going to build a wooden cathedral? it is not so far away from that.
    Best regards,
    Toni
