I had needed a shed for quite a few years but always seemed to put it off in favor of less involved projects. I have worked on remodeling my home pretty consistently since I bought it in 2004 and finally decided it was time to build a shed. I did a lot of research and looked at a lot of plans/videos and decided Henry's plans/videos were the best. Normally I would have gone to my dad for help and relied on his 30+ years of experience in construction but he is passed away and I found Henry to be the next best thing! I watched his entire shed build series on YouTube several times and found them to be very straight forward and easy to follow. I then bought the plans for the 10x12 shed and got to work. I was working by myself the entire time and ran into quite a few delays due to weather and work but it is finally done and I am very pleased with the results! The building inspector even complimented me on the quality of the build. I made a few changes to the plans by putting double doors on the long side and a ridge vent on the roof. Many times I had to stop working to review a video but I was always able to work through any delay because of them. I am a visual person and being able to refer to Henry's videos was a huge help. I told my wife several times I hoped my dad would be proud of the work I did and with Henry's help I think it is mission accomplished. Thanks again Henry!

  1. I’m looking to build something similar to MIke’s, with the door on the long side. Anything special to note, or just use the same theory as with the door on the shorter side?

    That is one rock solid looking shed Mike! I am sure if your Dad was checking your work, he’d give you a 100% approval… looks great and that gravel base with the stone trim really touches it off.
