    ...but turned into an O.P.E. shed. Here's the construction progression:

    Since I didn't want it to look like just another shed, I decided to do a apply a bit of "wood" art to the outside:

    That's already done months ago.

    It's now filled with 5 1/2 cord of 18-month dried wood.

    Very nice. I plan on maybe doing a similar thing next year. What are the angles for the roof truss? I like the overhang idea. Looks good.

    Looks Great

    I really like the branch tree on the front too. And you'll have any thieves scratching their head trying to figure out how to open the doors. Unfortunately I finally had to give up on a woodshed this year and ended up stacking in my barn.

    22.5 degrees. Rafters are 2x8, 8' long point to long point on the back and 3' in the front. Platform is 8' deep and 24' wide. Platform to front header beam is about 76", so I can walk in without ducking. Peak is 8'. Platform is PT and rafters are KD. Beams and siding is stuff I've sawn with my sawmill and been sitting around for a few years. Deck, roof sheathing, and doors are 1.125" t&g ply (got a deal on 75 sheets awhile ago and I've used up the last of that lot on this shed). Yea, it's heavy...106lbs per sheet.

    Thanks for that, book marking this thread now so I can use it in the future. Not that I see anything wrong it is always good to learn from others mistakes. Anything you would do different now that its done?

    Yea....I'd make it bigger. It's already full. Actually, both sheds were designed around the materials I already had laying around (lots of 4x4 and 7x7 rough sawn beams and thick plywood).

    Way to nice looking for a shed. You would expect an artist's studio in there when the doors went down. nice doors too!

    Ha ha. I had to google it myself. Some popular ones were:
    Out of Pocket Expense
    Open Pulmonary Embolectomy (that sounds permanent)
    One Person Enterprise
    Other People's Experience

    I've had to search quite a few of these TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms).
    IMO (In My Opinion) I have to say the words before I type the TLA anyway, and I can type as fast as I can put in the acronym, so I normally don't use them.
    Ha. My kids are pro's. Can't keep up with them.
    But I can turn wood into BTU's! :)

    Yes, it can be alphabet soup out there. I picked up the acronym from THIS forum...FWIW ;)
