Due to my job I don't have much free time to additional major projects. Building a storage she was one of those things that would either cost me time or money - I chose to free up my time and spend the money to have someone else make it. A local builder brought this 12x10 shed in on a trailer and assembled it in my back yard. The floor was two pieces, 4 walls, and 2 pieces for the roof. Very solid and open from floor to roof.

Before I move the Deere herd into it I am going to seal the floor with epoxy paint and add some hangers to the walls.

All it needs is a ramp to drive in on and you're set. Can you run the power over to it so you can tinker in the evenings?

Nice!  There's nothing like a new shed.  The herd should be very happy.

My neighbor got an Amish built shed last year and also needed a ramp.  It was placed on a good size pad of gravel to level the area out so a ramp to the thing was a toughie..  He was trying to figure out how to build a ramp since the area he put it was not really level and pumped me for ideas.  I gave hime the ideas I had then he told me he'd really like ramps that he  could put in and out to maintain the look of the thing without a ramp outside..  *A light went on in my head and I told him I may have something he could use and left it at that as I had to go and do some electrical work for a friend.  I had a set of truck bed ATV ramps I got from my brother when he moved and took them over later on that evening while he was out.  I tried them for fit and they worked great so I just put them in the shed..  He had pumped another buddy for ideas and to build his ramps so he came over to take a look.  (I was working and didn't see him yet)  His buddy went out, opened the doors and saw the ramps sitting there..  Then he went back to the house and told the neighbor-  why don't you use the ramps that are in the shed?  The neighbor went out and lo & behold there they were!  We all had a good laugh over that one!  Here is the type of ramps but not exactly like THESE

I bought a pair of these for my trailer and I'm happy with them. They are lightweight, so would be easy to store inside. Not had an issue with decks hanging on the trailer.
