This picture shows the placement of venting channels. This
venting helps to reduce heat in summer.
The venting, along with
insulation, allow the homeowner to store seed and
fertilizers in the shed. High heat and humidity can ruin
these expensive yard materials.
The venting also prevents
moisture damage to the shed.

This picture shows the framing I used to construct this
I use commonly accepted
building code in all framing.
Sheds donít have to follow
strict code but what's the point in saving a couple of
dollars now and paying for repairs later?
This shed will look the
same in forty years no problem.
Exterior Is Housewrapped.
Once again this shed is protected from moisture with
building paper. What type building paper makes little
difference to me, as long as it is overlapped properly.
If you look closely you will see the outline of a large set
of doors under the paper. I left the paper over the opening
because strong thunderstorms were expected that evening,
providing temporary water protection.
The flashing is installed and the roofing felt is laid down.
The temporary 2 by 4s will keep me from slipping off the
roof while shingling.
is Varnished and Painted.
Wow, look at the interior of this shed.
Iíve seen a lot of houses
that are not this nice!
The entire interior was
sheeted with exterior grooved siding. Floor, walls and
ceiling were treated with finish products including paints
Look at those nice little
pendant lights hanging there too.
I custom fitted these speakers into standard siding
materials. I also wired the speakers before the interior was
finished for a very professional job.
I like to do things that
are uncommon in my construction. Thank you to homeowners
willing to try new things!
Storage Loft and Built-In
This picture shows a very handy loft.
The floor of the loft is clip lock
flooring. The underside of the loft is exterior siding. Again we
varnished this surface to enhance the natural wood look in this
I customized a recessed lighting
fixture to increase headroom. I used a drop ceiling light fixture,
which I flush mounted to the exterior siding. I framed the fixture
with exterior siding to create the look you see here. Only five
eights of an inch were lost from headroom. Nice.
Vinyl Stone Siding Is the Final Touch.
I can do real stone but we used stone siding here.
I love how this looks on
This whole shed is top of
the line work and materials. I realize not all sheds will be
this nice but I take pride in my work no matter what
direction the homeowner wishes to take.
