How many sheds does a boy need?
« on: June 15, 2012, 09:03:53 AM »
First we built a 10x20 pretty green shed. Then an open wall 20x24 wood drying shed...added roofs on each side to end up with 36x 24 lumber storage space. Then a 16x32 open shed for the motor home with a 12x32 leanto roof added.  Then a 3 bay 30x24 enclosed storage and work shed w/concrete floor.  Then a 36x24 enclosed shed.  Then a 12x24 shed for the camper.  Then a saw shed for the LT28.  Still not enough room so we are extending the 36x24 by two more bays. Setting the posts today. The Peterson is in the saw shed so I'm figuring out where to build another saw shed for the WM.  I'm thinking of naming our property "Shed City".

If you still have grass to mow, you do not have enough sheds.   ::)

Qweaver,

I am just starting to build a 20' x 10' shed--largest shed for which no building permit is required. I am interested in what you did for the roof. Did you use a sloping, flat roof?  If so, what did you use for rafters? 2x6 on 2' centers?

At first I was going to build 2x4 trusses but think flat will be easier. Haven't figured out which would be cheaper. 2x4 is .38 a foot and 2x6 is .58 a foot. Of course OSB has shot up to $10.47.  >:(

I'm thinking of using 2x4 untreated sole plates with 60# felt paper under them, since it really dry here. Comments welcomed.

Doug - I'd go with the 2x6's... 20 isn't so much of a difference  for the added strength and support when you consider what might be hanging from those rafters down the road.  Not so sure I'd do a flat roof... a little bit of a slope for weather runoff might be a good idea..   :-\

My dad asked me that this past hitch home. I agree with MM. If the grass is showing either pour concrete or build a shed. Or add on to one.

I poured concrete to add the lumber shed and equipment shed to the shop building.

The minimum delivery here is 5 yards so I set 20 poured peirs and an 8x 27' slab along with the 6x6' cleanout on the new front commercial driveway. 12 tons of limestone #67 rock and new gate post poured also. Still have a little grass showing.

The mill shed is an original 36x 36' barn with loft that I extended 16' on one end and 24' on the other. The lean to tractor and boat shed is 60 x22' The shop is two shops under one roof. 40x 80' and will be adding the 56x 80' lumber shed and equipment storage. This will make it a standard gable roof design. Then the new garage for her is almost finished at 40x 40' with a game room up stairs. I built her a 16x30x10 green house a few years ago out of used gymnasium steel windows set on cinder block walls. We built this place to die in so we don't plan on moving afetr all this work. Think goodness we sawed our on wood or I couldn't have accomplished this.

Dad always left his equipment and tools right where he finished using them. I knew from that experience that If I owned it, it would have a home/roof to protect it. So for I'm getting there.

Once owned a (mostly) flat roof that was the first building the business had. We always joked about not looking at where the roof leaked; it was where the roof didn't. Which wasn't many places. I would never ever want a flat roof again.  Way too much work keeping it up, you can't tell where the water is actually leaking in. This was an old grocery store from early years. Why those old main streets in Kansas had all those buildings with flat roofs, is beyond me. Guess they could pack em in closer.

A boy only needs one shed for his bike. A man needs many sheds to store all his big toys. 8)

Around here we have something called a "Runoff Tax."  Any hard surface that rainwater cannot soak into the ground like roofs, pavement, etc., gets charged by the square foot. The tax is supposed to be held back for storm and water drainage projects around town. Satalite imagery helps them do their figuring. ::)

Now let me tell about those greedy rascals .Through advice I had at the time there supposedly was no size dimensions on portable shed sizes or so I thought .

Come find out it was taxes on anything over 12 by 16 so the rascals charged me taxes on my 12 by 20 I have full of chainsaws and what not .I was annoyed to say the least . >:(
