Built From the Ground Up


I took my time building this shed. What took a long time was the foundation. I had to cutout a section of the concrete slab and fill it with gravel and level it. Also, I dug a trench to bury my electrical conduit.

I don't know how many times I watched those videos but I picked up a lot of useful tips while building my shed and I had to make a jig of my own in order for me to work on the roof safely. Thanks for the videos, my work went smoothly. This is my first build and i"m so proud of what I've accomplished. Thanks Henry!

    Very nicely done Josh! Man that is a lot of work cutting out the concrete and running power etc but it look totally worth the effort – looks great with the lights, window shutters and the bed of gravel in the concrete patio. Neighbors are going to be jealous!

    • Thanks Henry, you’re right, my neighbors are jealous and they asked me if i could build one for them just like it. Thanks for your tips in the videos. It really helped me a lot to get this project started.
