This has a 10/12 pitch....it was a pain in the ass to roof. Iím so glad that is done. Now I need to finish sheathing the gable ends, felt the sides, install two more windows (plus the two windows in the dormer, but I donít have those yet), and then build and install barn doors. Then of course hang siding. To tell you the truth I am pretty burnt out on building this, especially since I am doing it alone.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Thanks. I will defiantly post more pics as I go. Itíll defiantly be slower going now since it gets dark at 4pm. Iím going to work on getting it dried in and then take a few weeks off. I have two small kids and donít want this to dominate the weekends anymore. But now that the roof is on I feel a big sense of relief!

Very Nice!

Seems like so much work for the size shed you ended up with.... maybe zoning restrictions? We can have as many shed as we like, but they must not be larger than 10' X 12' if I recall. A few of my neighbors have 2 exactly the same size, but that looks worse than if they had one larger one.

I always use the space above for storage ... it's free space! Looks real nice with the dormer!.

My question is ...4ND3R5 about your math here. 4 and 3 are not 5.
so what gives?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Yeah, I wish I would have just gone bigger. We just bought this house and it doesnít have a garage or shed (besides that little plastic one next to the one Iím building). It was a combination of neccessity, placement and not needing a permit were reasons for that size......and I really wanted to build something that fit in and looked well with my house.
My plan was to build this so Iíd have storage above and a little workshop below and in the future build a bigger shop. Now Iím thinking buying something like this is more economical. Price includes installation. https://www.tuffshed.com/products/#/...Ranch%20Garage

Oh...and 4=A, 3=E, and 5=S.

Put in a couple windows today. I know it’s not very interesting, but I like looking at pictures of stuff other people are up to, so I thought you guys would too. Sorry the picture is blurry. Oh, and I finished up the gable end framing today also. I only worked on the shed for about 1 1/2 hours, since we had family over earlier.
All the windows I picked up used.

Don't worry about that. I found two 30x30 pieces of thick commercial glass for free. I made a frame for them and put them in my shop. The other utility building I have has two windows I got from The ReStore. Gotta save $$$$ whenever you can.

Yes sir! I bought all the 2x4s for a dollar fifty each from a guy that got them from a trucking company that had used them as dunnage.

I got this solar power kit for free. Does anybody have any experience with solar power? I am interested in solar power, and I think this will be a good starter kit to fool around with. Any tips and pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Both gable ends are sheathed, and the last window installed. I will felt it, and then work on building doors and a ramp.

Thank you. I will post more pictures when I get something interesting done. This past week I have been working on it sporadically doing odds and ends. I have put all the felt on except for the two gable ends.
Today I received the barn door hinges in the mail. I got a really good deal on Amazon.....six hinges plus all the screws for 13 bucks. I laid out a story pole for how I want the double doors laid out. Making the doors and finishing off the felt is next on the to do list.
