In response to Jess showing off his Garage come kitchen come living room come mancave, those of us living in major cities/urban squalor now have the chance to show off our equivalent.

So, if you have a shed, cupboard or outdoor box etc now have the chance to make those US members gloat in envy of our abilities to utilize space in a much more innovative and "Ikea" style.

To get things started, below you will find a few pictures of my "pride and joy" which recently gave birth to a mutant child (on the right in the pictures) to hold all my dangerous chemicals (well paint, meths, glues, solvents, etc).

This measures 10ft by 6ft and contains "areas" for

Gardening,
Moping (sitting alone contemplating "why")
Cycling
Camping
Sunbathing
Garden Water Play
Scootering (small shelf above door)
Motoring
Cleaning
Tree Prunning
Kite Flying (not in the shed, but storing the kites)

Big Shed and Son of Big Shed

Hereby awarded the 'Plucky Brit' award for staunch spirit and resistance in the face of almost overwhelming domestic and parenting odds Laughing emoticon Clap emoticon

Perhaps this pic could find a place in that shed (a very small space obviously, you haven't got much to spare... Laughing emoticon Razz emoticon )

Shed from scratch
2009-2010 I decided to build an 8 X 12 shed in the backyard. Took me about 8 months to finish but it was one of my favorite projects I ever did.

Take a look at Santiago's shed. Can you tell we are from the same part of the country?
Floor done and on the skids.

Since I wanted a 45 pitch the floor made a great jig for the roof trusses.

I love a nice shed and small spaces in general. I don't want to hijack the thread with this, but thought that some of you might enjoy seeing some tiny houses from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. I'd love to have something like this to use as my home office. Being detached from the main house would be a good way to keep my home and work lives more separate.

Storage for generator, chainsaws, pressure washer, flammables and all of the gardening tools. The attic has some spill over from the attic in the main house.

My daughter wants me to clean it all out and put a bed and bathroom in it so she can "camp out" when she is home for a visit. Even if I did I don't think my little Chicago city girl would last ten minutes out there alone. Laughing emoticon

As it happens, I have something of my own to add.

Back in 2001, shortly after marrying and moving in with my lovely wife in the house that she already owned, I scratch-built a shed out in the back yard to store all my crap. Note that it stayed nice and tidy like that for about five days. After that it was stuffed with crap, and in fact it's still stuffed with crap to this day. We're going to start renting that house out soon, so I really need to start cleaning it out.

I didn't really have a design. I had blueprints for a much smaller shed, but all that gave me was a general style of what the exterior should look like. Mine was much larger, so I pretty much made it all up as I went along, using house-framing techniques as my guide.

I dig that design. Looks like you left the spaces between rafters open. Can't get away with that in Florida as the shed would soon be infested with palmetto bugs. I used plastic gutter covers from Home Depot which look just ok. Fortunately you can't really see them on my shed.

I also freestyled mine from a picture. Probably did a bunch of stuff wrong but it is still square and level.

Thanks I really enjoyed building it. Well most of it anyway. My favorite parts were building the doors from knotty pine and making the sills for the tip in windows.

Drew how are her drywall skills. I have a project coming up.

Once again, awsome! I hope some day (soon) I will build a shed too!

I have volunteered for Habitat for Humanity a couple of time and the parts I enjoyed most was putting up walls and roofs. Hope that experiance helps in my endevore!

Yeah, I left the area above the clerestory windows open for ventilation. There are some screened-in vents in the lower part of the back wall, and so there's a nice passive convection ventilation going at all times. I was originally going to screen-in the exposed rafters, but kind of lost interest in the project after a while. Worst I get is a few spiders.

Yeah John, Josie can drywall too but she likes woodwork better. I'll give you $20.00 a day to get her out of my hair. Works like a dog and eats cheap food. Loyal and affectionate. All shots. Let me know.

Once again the Yanks steam in with their posh custom designs, power supplies, beds, attics, shingle roofs etc. I am impressed with the design and construction quality on display once again.

I thought we were going to show 'em how it's done.

I didn't even "make" mine, I just screwed the ready made kit together (I did lay the concrete foundations).

Come on you Brits, where are you? There must be a couple of you from up north with your pigeon boxes, grow bags and whippet training rigs?

I just found this pic of one of my earlier builds from about 7 or 8 years ago - at the time I was "famed" for my shed building (putting together) skills so I had built for a few neighbours too. Sorry about the "vermin" blocking the view - just dont seem to be able to get rid of them (at least not for a couple more years).

Alas, the health and safety regulations in America along with the overly-litigious culture have diminished what was once a proud trampolining nation.

my shed was home to my scoot until 23 yr old daughter graduated, married & moved on. My scoot now resides in closed in garage that had been her bedroom. The shed is now filled with my things that my wife does'nt want in the house.

We just bought a house that has a couple of outbuildings. This one has an old root cellar and smokehouse from when it was part of the original farmstead years ago. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do with this space.

Considering a third shed.. I will try to take a picture of one of mine tommorow in the sun.. I figure it's way over 100 years old.. My house is 183 years old so it's certainly possible..

She wanted to put some of her garden shit in there but I squeezed her out. Now she has her own shed. Good she can keep her lawn mower, weed whacker and leaf blower there out of my way.

Here's the shed I built last year to house two of our four scooters over the winter months. It's only 6' x 10', which is the largest the county would allow me to build on my tiny 50' x 125' lot.

I built it with cedar lap siding and green and red trim to match my cedar Craftsman-style house. Two scooters fit in easily, and it would be possible to squeeze in a third with a little manhandling.

It's still not really finished. I didn't get it wired for electricity or get shelves put up before winter set in.

Not actually a shed, just a covered space for my Vespa when I am not riding her
