Since I bought this home 7 years ago I've needed a shed. I finally had the resources to build it. It is designed to be my wood shop as its final purpose, but for now it will be a storage building for my tractors and my modelA. I plan on using my garage to do all my work and just keep everything in here. The following pics start with the prepping of the area to where I'm at now. If anyone has any specific questions, feel free to ask.
Me getting the area ready , me using the 195 to dig out and level the space image.jpeg
the gravel base4" thickimage.jpeg
My loaders capacity image.jpeg
The 4x6 runners that my shed sits onimage.jpeg
The floor framing. 2x6's 12" oc . Between the 4 runners and the 12" joists, I wanted to hold the car ( 2500 lbs) and all my tractors image.jpeg
The deck covered with 3/4" tongue and groove plywood, part of the total strength. image.jpeg
The first wall upimage.jpeg
The garage door is on the back and the ground has been graded so it's a level entrance once I build the deck that spans the bevel built into the hill.image.jpeg
The walls are all up, windows and door openings are now visual, ceiling joists are up. The large window on the front is a fixed glass, the 2 smaller windows are awning style. The height is to be above future tools that would be on that wall. They are also on the south side, always providing light and what should be a good a good breeze/ ventilation.
image.jpeg
Rafters are now up. The shed now shows its shape. image.jpeg
I will go into more description about the exterior details in future posts. I am off this week and hope to get it weather tight before I go back to work on the 30th.

   Sweet!!!  Looks awesome, always nice to have a place to store you things.  I know here in ny we don't have to have building permits for buildings under 120 sq ft.  that looks bigger than that but very well built.

Under 500 sq ft can either be on gravel, concrete slab, or piers( dug below the frost line of 42") . This side of my yard is ledge ( shale ) so this was the best option. I had to hand pick axe out some of the ledge to make it somewhat level .

A permit is required over 250 sq ft and stay under 500 and it's considered portable. Doesn't require same codes as permanent structures.

I always do the best I can afford. I make sure it meets my high standards and has resale value too, with curb appeal. I am styling this after an old fashioned barn.

Looks real good, Tom.  When I built our house, I put a door in the gable end over the garage door(the window is in the door). It made it easy to put things into the attic without having to carry them through inside. You may want to consider that. I was able to use the forks on the 4500 to put things at the door and save alot of effort. Good Luck, Rick

 Many people assume that the building codes are the same everywhere. Where I am, a permit is required for anything over 10 sq meters (108 sq ft). I am currently framing houses for a living and I have to say that yours is looking good.

Tom, the shed looks good. Didn't look that big when it was just a pad. What kind of a model A do you have that has attachments, a doodlebug??  :smilewink:
