    Do you by chance have a list of the lumber you used?

    If you have excel on your computer, I can send you the spread sheet of all the material and plans for the roof.

    You must really like Wheat Ridge to deal with crap like that. I would be mad as a hornet if anyone ever tried to enforce what I could do on my land that I pay for and pay taxes on.

    Thanks everone for the nice comments. I am thrilled to know that I no longer have to fight the tarp issues, especially during storms. It's a bit more than I planned to build... I'm sure you'll all know what I am talking about when I say it had to pass the bosses desk on appearance. Seeing it's in view from any window in the back of the house, I have to agree with her!

    Agree with that raybonz, this shed has since had a few 2 x 6 put under the deck for support and has held up well but could have benefited from a front roof panel. Upgrade, maybe.

    Hey stejus. I see this post is a couple years old, but I am just starting with wood this year. Never burned wood in my life and my wife is already after me to "hide" the wood so we don't look like hillbillies lol. I planned to build a woodshed and your's is EXACTLY what I pictured in my mind. Do you still have that excel sheet? It would be awesome if you could share that with me! Please let me know.

    Really like the New England barn red. Very nicely done! How well did the paint take to the PT 4x4 posts? Did you have to prime them first?

    Thanks for the tip on the paint. I'm in the process of building my wood shed and am considering the T1-11 plywood siding panel, but would rather see it painted than either left alone or stained. Sounds like the Benjamin Moore solid stain is the way to go as I would have some PT to also cover. I'm using a brown metal roof, so thought a nice weathered grey color would go well.
