Your description of Minnesota nice is spot on with my experience. Our no permit rule in st. paul is only 100sqft though, to bad….

Its an awesome shed, you did great work here.

How about this weather around here, huh?

Rooster,

I have more lights on that shed than you could imagine, at night she lights up like an airstrip.  And, if you look up at the peak on the front of the building there is a saw blade with hand letters that say's, "Code Compliant".    That touch was for who ever called the building inspector on me.

This might be a stupid question, but how is it attached to the pad?

Thx's, Fred ( jyblood@nwi.net )

The frame is set on a concrete pad.   I used some L-shaped brackets at the posts.  I put a lag screw in the post and and anchored it to the concrete pad with a threaded rod designed for installation into concrete.

That's one NICE looking shed!   8)

Did you use forms at all for the posts?  Or just pour a slab and set the posts right on the slab?  If so, how thick of a slab did you pour?

This winter is strange with as little snow or cold.  I bet the shed looked cool lit up at night, got a pic?  Some snow on the ground would look even better.  I'm hoping we get some winter here soon (IL).  The bugs are going to be bad this year...
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Posts were set right on the slab.  The slab was 6". 

Odd winter here to Brad.   No snow, not much ice.   No vehicles on the lake for ice fishing.
