This shed project started out to be a simple housing for our proposed whole house generator. As things go, this project got a little larger than expected. Generator turned into a commercial Onan generator that was bigger than originally thought so it needed a larger housing. Of course you need additional room so a full size shed it was. Since the generator weighed in a more than 650 lbs it was easier to build the shed around the generator. I first built the floor and set the generator on top before I built the walls. It now houses our generator, JD lawn tractor, tools and …. The generator runs on natural gas so all the plumbing for that along with routing the exhaust had to be incorporated into my plans.
We’ve now decided to build a second shed since our existing shed was termite ridden and ready to fall down. This one’s bound to be bigger.;) Expecting it to be about 10×10′ since that’s the size of the concrete slab the old shed sits on. Will be posting progress of that one later.
I’m 59 years old and was able to do all the work mostly along except for some help from the wife.
