This was my first attempt at a project like this – I decided to make a 8×12’ version and tried to follow most of the videos online – my foundation was 2 4×4 PTs on cement blocks with a 2×4 PT frame and 3/4 in osb flooring – I knew I wasn’t going to be placing heavy objects in the shed or I would have gone with 2×6 PTs – I followed the video on making the trusses and gussets and used LP Smart Panels for siding – used architectural shingles and did the V Match soffit – I bought an exterior door off FB market place but realized it was for a 2×6 frame so I just added to make it work – my other minor mistake was building the ladders after my roof was on – oops – I guess next time I will buy the plans! Overall the wife is really happy on how it turned out – I’ve even run electrical to the shed for lights and outlets – I still look at the shed and can’t believe I built it – thanks to Henry and the Country Life Projects videos!

Kudos to Henry and Country Life Projects - I found you on you-tube and after watching your videos I’m like “I can do that” I spent a month watching a video then doing that portion of the shed and I got a little help from friends when I had to install the roof - now with this project complete I’m considering doing a Man Shed - 10x14 or bigger - but this time I’m going to purchase the plans and modify where necessary- thanks again to Henry he has such a calming voice it was fun learning and watching the videos
