New Wood Shed

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

New Wood Shed

I have had this idea beetling around in me cranium for a number of years but there was always something else to do .. not enough time .. not enough coin etc.... but this year well time to get off the pot and giterdone...

Dad and I salvaged a whole pile of fencing material when they tore down one of the old local schools - Dad said that it would come in handy sometime. Well a lot of the stock already has. I have made 3 of my flag poles from this stock, tower guy supports and a bunch of other stuff. Still finding more uses for the stock.

So here is what we is doing. Fire wood stores best covered. I need to keep at least 2 years of cut wood dry at all times. Learned that the hard way. If it is left outside some of it can go punky real quick and all that work has been wasted. Keeping the wood dry keeps the BTU count up there so it makes a lot of sense to keep it dry.

1st step is to build the foundation. Here is how it is going:

Ray brought the Auger truck over and dug the holes with Mario my go-to-guy helping to get them level/plumb/tamped. They are all ready now for the floor to get framed. Going to use pressure treat stock methinks. Should last a long time. Still thinking on how it is all going together - have a few ideas but .. pretty fluid so far.

Best part?

I got to sit in me ride, have a :coffee: and just watch the fun :big smile:

Pretty neat getting the posts already concreted in. To bad you didn't think to get the post holes as well while you were salvaging material. :lol:
