   You know it is not going to be big enough. :D Looks real good.

    My very best to your dad. My 90 y/o mom was just released Christmas Day after 5-6 in the hospital for C-19. She and my 450+ lb brother both seem to have recovered from it in spite of their ages and health risks.

I could put a cover over an acre and it wouldn't be big enough whiteflag_smiley. I've got an old barn on the place (only original building left) that is beyond repair. I'd REALLY like to take it down and put up 60 x 100 cold storage in it's place, but that's a whole different animal. This year we're going to have to do something for climate controlled kiln dried lumber storage,,,,,, what have I gotten myself in to  :o. Lovin every minute of it!  
I'm glad to hear your mom and brother came out of it. It's weird stuff

Beautiful shed but i disagree on the concrete . It is low here in south ga and for years i have dealt with uneven ground and water . Last year i pored it all including my shop. I don't saw full time and don't have a blower yet. I saw for 2 days put the bucket on my skid steer and in 15 minutes it is gone. The best part is stacking , it is so much better on concrete than on the ground.
Absolutely. Anybody thats making excuses to not put concrete in or out of their building is making excuses. It comes down to cost. Yes its expensive. The upside is absolutely incredible. Ask anybody with a concrete floor in their shop. If your going to go heavy on the floor you can go thicker on the concrete in the middle like 6or 8 and towards the walls 4 where your not going to have as much weight. A power troweled floor is extremely nice but more expensive

Absolutely the concrete comes down to cost. I know all about it, my other company is  municipal water and wastewater treatment construction and our bread and butter is heavy structural concrete (we place 2,000+ cy yds/yr.) and process mechanical. Some day there may be concrete in it, but there is no question that walking back and forth and around the mill on class 5 is easier on my back than on concrete all day.

Awesome shed you're building here.  I sure hope your dad gets well and comes back to work on it with you.  I sure would like to have something like this, but then I'd need to include my woodworking shop with it as well.  I don't think you can do better than Sikkens Cetol for your stain, but its mighty expensive.  Might be cheaper to put up the metal.

After a bit of consternation, I've decided to go with steel wainscoat on the bottom 4' of the walls. The input here on the forum is excellent and after coming this far with the project, it makes sense to have the steel on the bottom. Just ordered it and it's about 3 weeks out.

Thanks for sharing this build, it is truly inspirational! More positive thoughts from the last frontier for your Dad, if anyone can pull through C-19 he sounds like he can.  Here's to putting that chapter behind him!

After a bit of consternation . . .  
From time to time, I've found that a bit of "construction consternation" is helpful. 
Good move, you won't regret the wait.

Just a quick update on the shed progress. The metal wainscoat was absolutely the way to go.


I also decided to put a concrete floor in the lean-to before closing in the walls, a lot easier to finish around the posts now. We're going to enclose and insulate this part of the building and use it for dried lumber/slab storage/display. It's coming together slow, but sure.
