I agree, but with two wings like that, you better be sure you have it secured to the ground, it could fly away on you. :D

Wow!  That is a great looking shed.  I'd love to have that.  It would be crammed full to the roof in no time but what a great place to stack piles of drying lumber.  I really like the piers you poured to mount the posts on.  Did you buy the metal brackets or make them?

Thanks everyone. 
Caveman — I made the post brackets. Straps welded to an 8” square plate. The straps extend into the concrete to anchor to the pier. 

Jim — I do worry about wind lift. One thing helping lower the risk is the building is located in an old gravel pit below surrounding elevations.

Beautiful shed and great execution. For someone who doesn't know much about concrete, do you find a way to tie the 3 concrete pads together? Or each floats independent? Forgive my ignorance.
