I built this shed in the background last summer. $45 - I wanted a Tin Roof . Otherwise all of the wood is salvage , I got the 4x4 frame wood from pallets I broke down .
A friend works at a metal engineering place and they get their sheet steel on these 4x10 - 5x12 heavy duty pallets they pile it up outside and I pick up as much as I want when I want . It takes a lot of work to get the 4x4s out of them but hey , you can't beat the price .
I also get sheets of paneling they use to ship with , it is defects with bad prints or something . I tore the fence down in the back of my yard to reclaim 8' of my property and used it for the siding.
I built this to get the extra stuff out of my garage shop and to store my push mower and power washer and spreader . I also store attachments, ladders , chicken wire etc.
I built the addition on my shop this way also , but used salvage doors with windows for light from a local 'restore' place .
This is the only image I have of the Garage before I did my thing to it.
It was such an eyesore to look at while enjoying the back deck , I couldn't stand it so I decided to make it something nice to look at and give it a rustic barn type of appeal , Now I hang old tools on it for interesting things to study while enjoying the deck
I put a new shingle roof on it and sided it with 'rough sawn' pine from a mill nearby . The garage refurbish was not done cheap . I put $800 into it total with all the windows and the roof and doors.
