    I'm tired of seeing all of these purdy woodsheds (or maybe I'm just jealous ;) ) Let's see your cobbled-together-half-falling-down-bailing-wire-and-bubble-gum woodshed!

    Heck that looks good to me! Only thing I like better than a cheap build is the use of rough cut beams and timber. Best I can do is a scronge chix coop! lol 80 percent scrounged.

    Hell, Fish...I think that's one classy woodshed. Not at all what I expected to see when I read the thread title. Rick

    Jay, if you look at your sheds gable end the right way it looks like Thomas the tank engine.

    Its ugly but 12 inch on center and book match black walnut on the front. Will look better after trim but I have to many hours on it now. Need to get the shop loaded up with wood and make sure the wood furnace is ready for another 6 month run. Oh, and all ss screws about 20lbs worth freebee too!

    I'll get a different picture-I think the angle hides a lot. Kind of like the ones that people send each other online to disguise what they really look like :lol: If you look at it straight on you can see all the warped lumber I used from the cull pile at Lowes. It was a damn good deal though-a whole truckload of slightly warped posts, pressure treated decking, 2x4s and even two sheets of plywood for $30!

    Man this is disappointing! I think those are decent looking shelters especially the OP's "ugly" shelter!

    Here is my shed, it's made of about 90% recycled material. Originally it had a tarp for the roof, that didn't last too long. I replaced it with plywood and role roofing, much better.

    She holden. Not sure there a lot of life left. 90 percent though is impressive, sure there more to come. I love the scrounged material's! Mine the only thing I bought was 35 2x4 treated 1.96 a stick. Made my own 4x4's for the back two corners and rip the 2x4 down to 2x2 for studs and making the fence stronger.

    6 hours work, 4 pallets, 2 crate bottoms, 7 rough cut 2x6, 3 1x6 from the dismantled crate,
    and 2 pieces of old used tin.
    $0 new money. Ugly, but beautiful too.

    Great job creating that zero dollar wood shelter! I would not mind having several of those in my yard.. Anything is better than relying on tarps to keep wood dry!

    You win so far, until mines finished anyway, I need some more pallets before I can finish mine, my original plans fell through.

    I do not think any of these wood sheds are "fugly"...not even "ugly"....because....
    it is what inside them that counts...(kinda like people)...
    and the "contents" of all these sheds are beautiful.....
    Kudos to all you guys and gals.... :)

    Great Ray...thanks... :)

    I just posted that because I know how much hard work goes into c/s/s wood.....
    So what if your wood shed is not as aesthetically pleasing as others....as long as it has good chit inside it.... :)
