Looks nice.

Curious about the deck/floor. Why not use the slab. I see it's elevated slightly. Drainage issues?

New shed is on my to-do list.

Re: Shed Picture.


I wont paint it. It may get a coat of sealer with or with out a light stain, once it ages a little. The slab is level with the ground with a good rain, the watter can pool up a bit not much but just enough. The Slab is not in as good shape as it looks. Its prob. been there for 65 years. It is poured in 4x4 sections and not very smooth. I just decide to build it on a deck. I may not know better but it is my 1st attempt at a shed. Thanks for the comments.

Re: Shed Picture.


How close is that bare wood siding to the concrete? Looks to me like you will have rapid mildew and deterioration on the bottom of all the siding and no way to treat the bottom of the siding from that. Shed,garage, outbuilding, dormer whatever you still want clearance around the bottom of the siding, ternites will love the wet bottoms to climb in to the walls. And siding installed before windows?

Re: Shed Picture.


@ Shell..Its is as close as it looks to the concrete. Maybe I'll jack it up 4 more inches. Ill have to bring the next one a little higher off the ground. Thanks for the tip! The windows did go in after the siding. They are the sashes from 75 year old house windows turned into shed windows. I didint know any better as to what goes 1st (1st time I ever built a shed)...some times I just have to build it as it comes to me and in my mind I needed to side it first to get the windows to work the way I wanted them to. Thanks for the help. Have a good one!

Re: Shed Picture.


I have built many sheds and the windows can go in after the siding. It's how I have always done it. Not sure why it matters. You don't replace the siding when you replace a window on a house...

As far as painting, you need to seal the wood as soon as you can. The bottom of the siding needs a good coat so that moisture doesn't wick up into it. Control the moisture, control insects. The doors also need sealing ASAP, as they will warp if allowed absorb moisture.

Re: Shed Picture.


For your first shed, I think it's a helluva good job

Just remember,...you gotta use pt skids to build them on if you want them to last.

If you don't address this - put some gutters up copper always looks nice it will help.

PT skids is a great point. That's all we used. The added benefit is that they can be loaded onto a flat bed and moved to a different location.
