    Building a nice wood shed? Then do yourself a favor and go the extra mile to run power out to it so you can see what you're doing in the middle of the night. And don't forget to add in a duplex outlet, even if you've no idea what you might ever plug into it. If you ever want it and it's not there, you ain't plugging in. Rick

    I just run an extension cord under the snow and hang a single bulb from the rafters.

    Yup ...electrical power is sweet. Couple years ago I put weather poof outlets in both lean-to's. Nice to have a radio playing or a near by plug for charging a battery.

    You could power an electrical heater to keep you warm, or dry wood a little extra- LOL

    I'm thinking of a "wave" sound machine so when I am sitting in front of the stack on a lawn chair with adult beverage, I can have the gentle sound of waves in the back ground. Oh, and a lit up plastic palm tree. Yea, yea, thats the ticket.

    Better install plumbing too, you never know when you might want to use the can when getting some wood for the evening. Don't forget the TP, VERY IMPORTANT.

    Your firewood is taken better care of than some people's dogs. It looks cozy in there.

    Well, seein's how I've been married to a Clinical Psychologist for almost 19 years, I guess that's pretty much either a lost cause in my case, or a testament to where a whole lot of professional help might get you. %-P Rick

    Wood shed? Don't need no stinkin wood shed. I have one, 12 X 24 build twenty years ago, but it is so full of junk that the wood piles now sit outside covered with EPDM rubber roofing. Oh, and with a flood light on the back of the house aimed at them. Yep, gotta have that light in case ya forget where ya sat the beer.

    Plumbing?, one of the plusses of having a wood shed is also having the ability to take a piss behind it.

    Some very nice set-ups guys. My last wood shed was a basic pole barn with tin and recycled barn boards. My next one, this summer, will have a few more trimmings. Definitely hydro.
