taupe shed

Here's two views of a shed I saw on a recent country garden tour:

I think I would have put a window on the side to provide some interior light. But it's a lovely shed.

Shed with Steel Roof

I noticed this shed on a walk. Looks like it holds a lot of stuff:

"Built this last Summer, most all the wood is old yellow pine, from a barn
and corn crib on my farm in Iowa. Inside frame is with 4" x 4", 4" x 6" and
4" x 8" yellow pine. Most all the outside 1" x 6" verticals are yellow pine
as well as the batons. Oil stain on outside to match our ranch style house.
Inside is beautiful...unfinished wood. Faces south.

Floor is 2" x 12" and 2" x 10" yellow pine boards, supported by pressure
treated 2" x 10"'s. Cedar shake roof.

Will put finishing touches on it this Summer."

Wow. What a gorgeous shed!

"My husband built this little shed for me without any plans, the windows are all handmade and the skylight as well. It's my private getaway."

Todd's Lighthouse Shed

This is a shed / playhouse that I built a few years ago for a Hospice charity auction. It is based upon an actual lighthouse on Grand Island in Lake Superior. It was intended as a playhouse and includes an interior ladder that accesses the coupla and a door to the upper balcony for surveying one’s domain. The floor is custom painted with gameboards, and a built-in desk provides space for adventure planning. The winning bid at the auction was $9500.00 including transportaton and installation. The main part of the shed is 8 x 12 feet, and it is 16’ high at the top of the coupla.

turning iron beds into garden benches

Steve in Kansas has welding experience and started turning old iron beds into garden benches. He calls them Flowerbeds:

Good work, Steve.
