Thread: Getting a Shop/Shed!
01-30-2012, 12:00 PM #11
After what seems like a lifetime, but in actuality only a month or so, the shed was delivered last Saturday. It's beautiful, completely exceeded my expectations. I wish I had gone bigger, but there's probably no size I would have decided was "big enough". It appears to be quite strong with quality craftsmanship. I have pictures, but they're on the home computer so I'll try to post them up tonight.
Delivery was in and of itself amazing. They have custom-built trailers specifically designed to deliver these sheds. It had rollers the length of the trailer so sheds could slide on and off with the help of a huge winch and a hinged trailer design with a pair of rams to roll it off. They also have a purpose-built mule and casters to pick up the shed by the edges and shunt it around into its final resting place.Christopher

As promised, here are a few pictures of the shed.
They have a specialized trailer setup specifically made to load and unload these sheds:
Every 4th stud is doubled-up. This will make it harder to insulate, but it's a lot stronger

Looks empty. LOL. Hey while it is empty to help you keep inside temps liveable put some insulation in thm der walls.
Low budget? find an appliance store that has appliances protected by that foam stuff and use it. Kinda redneck but cheap and eficient2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

Well, I just got the shed... A new wall, insulation, power, drywall, the works will be in there soon, followed by tools and such. For some reason I'm expected to work to get a paycheck which cuts into my time to build the interior.

you will find that no matter how big of shed you have, youll fill it up. my dad built a 40x60 shed not to long ago. now he wishes he had made a bigger shed.

The shed is supposed to come with 2 windows, but I purposely had them omit them. I didn't think windows would be optimal for my intended use. I'll have plenty of artificial light in there once I do the electrical work. I can also open the garage door which lets in plenty of natural light. For the rear storage room I'm looking at somewhere between 2-4 4 foot flourescent fixtures and for the front shop area I'll have 4-6 4 foot flourescent lights. Light shouldn't be an issue...
