I have a customer that sent me this picture:



Seems simple enough, not concerned about the construction, but looking for suggestions on wood type.

Cedar, P/T?

Thanks in advance.

Pt and metal roof. Maybe composite for the deck.

Rabbet the posts ,before setting them, for the slats and use the ripping for a stop behind the slats. Fast and easy

Rough sawn Hemlock will last pretty good as long as it's not in contact with the ground. The bottom being gapped for air is great as long as the HO realizes that things will be growing up through and slippery things will be inside. Plastic underneath with pea gravel works pretty good at keeping moisture and weeds down under the building.

Exactly what I used to side my tractor barn. I trucked it 500 miles back from the mill in upstate PA. Man I love that rough sawn hemlock. I wish I had a bunch more left over and I'd build myself one of those wood sheds.
