Building a shed. I've been meaning to make my carpet shop a better and more functional. You know the neverending struggle to organize things. I realized. What I really need is a small shed, so I can store all my garden tools, which was taking up space in the carport area. You know my small lawnmower rakes shovels that kind of stuff, although I don't have that much equipment, so the sheet doesn't need to be very large, which is why I decided to make it three by six feet, which is a little less than one by two meters. Now, building a shed is easier than you might think, and it all starts with your foundation. Now many of the steps that I'm doing here can be modified to fit your needs and your situation.
This area sometimes gets rather wet in the winter. So I want to make sure the water will drain away properly, so I'm adding gravel here and then pressure treated wood or the face. This is not the first structure I built, for example, the shop with a much bigger version. However, the principle is the same: it's pretty much layer upon layer now I want to make sure the shed is really stable, so I decided to drill some holes and add some rebar into the ground in the base. Now, this took a bit of effort to get down, but that should make it nice and stable a little filter fabric is a good idea to prevent weed growth on top of the bills. I'm just going to add a simple 2x4 floor. It's kind of funny to think how houses mainly consist of two by fours when I was young, I always pictured a house as a rather complex thing, and I was quite surprised. I remember once I realized how houses are mostly made with two by four frames. In one way or another, I happen to have some left over: yellow oil paint on hands added some for extra protection and throughout this project, I'm using the RZ masks which come in some really cool, colors and they're very comfortable to wear, especially when you're cutting OSB And two-by-fours - and there was certainly quite a lot of that before this project - I mean everybody knows that you should wear a mask.
It's sometimes easy to forget and that's why I really like these masks because they're pretty nice to wear for a long period of time. No matter what tasks you do next up is the walls and like any project making sure you mark everything correctly is T, and it's also a good idea to mark all sides of the wood to make life a little easier for yourself and avoid mistakes. As you put everything together, this is the kind of project that a lot of people probably want to do, but they seem a little intimidating to get started. But it's a great opportunity to learn new skills and it's really nice having a super-bright workshop to work in, especially at night and they're building. These walls like this are really quick to do because the walls are light and by adding the sheathing after the walls are up. It's a lot easier to get everything done now that the slower and the walls are done, I'm designing the roof, I'm going to match the pitch of my shot, so I'm going with a four in twelve roofs, which basically means it's about 18 degrees. And Here I am sporting, my purple mesh mask while doing some cuts. So if you guys want to try out the RZ masks as well, you can get a free three-pack of their f1 filters. If you use the code job and order act check out a roof, this small is is enough to build on the ground and just lift up. It's a lot more comfortable doing it.
This way, if you can and I'm using some home, wrap instead of tar paper for the roof here, since I'm not climbing on top of it, to attach shingles. So it doesn't matter that this paper is a little slippery and it's always good to see that it fits perfectly once it gets up there. Luckily I had the home wrap and the staple hammer from my shop build a couple of years ago. Adding this kind of siding certainly isn't necessary, but I wanted the shed to really match everything in my backyard. I have seen Hardy board on my shop and it's been really great, so I wanted to go for the same look here when I spray paint like this, which is a thick paint and primer in one. I do about thirty percent water and I do very light coats which will go on well now. I wouldn't try to spray paint like this without thinning it quite a bit. First and now I finally get to work inside the shed. I added a bunch of pegboards and these various headboard holders to organize this and there's just something pretty awesome about getting everything lined up correctly and up on the wall in addition to the pegboard holders. I wanted to add some shelving this really helpful. Jig allowed me to drill tons of holes all lined up nicely.
