Well, I started mine in June and just finished last week by installing the
homemade cabinets. This was a completely new experience for me; buildling
concrete forms, pouring concrete, framing walls, building trusses, making
doors (2 double sets), installing a window ($10 at building recycler),
siding (T1-11), roofing, soffit/fascia, eavestrough, wiring, cabinets with
raised panel doors, workbench.
I had never done any of that before but I did it all myself with help from
friends. It's 8ft X 20ft with full 8ft walls (I'm not banging my head
inside this one) I probably have over $3000 into it by now. (long and
narrow because it had to fill in a certain space). It wasnt' really going
to be a major project but it just took off and I had a whole lotta fun and a
great learning experience.
One book I found helpful was " Building a Shed" by Joseph Truini. They have
plans and colour photos of many different sizes and shapes.
