    Backyard Lawn Shed Project

    Hello everyone. I figured I would post on GTT my lawn shed project I have started a few weeks ago. My goal is to construct a 10x12 lawn shed on a stone area where the previous home owners had a shed prior to us moving in. Since this house/property is temporary, I decided to put the shed on skids so I could take it with me if I choose to when I eventually move. This project is an addition to my full-time job and parenting so updates may be somewhat infrequent, however, my goal is to have it done by May 19th.

    Enjoy!

    Here are some photos of progress. 10x12 footprint. Stone base in the background. Walls are constructed and laying in front of base. Will be building trusses this week, and looking forward to raising it this weekend, weather permitting.

    So the second image I would submit would preview/save upside down, so I decided to submit the second image in another post.

    Lookin' good Boar! You may already have this in your plans, but one suggestion I'd like to make is to put a second "sacrificial" floor on top of your plywood. Eventually, your floor is going to wear...out or through! 1 by's or 2 by's on top of the plywood can easily be replaced...or even a second layer of plywood. Bob

    That's a good suggestion. I was thinking about that while putting the primary floor down. I am thinking of putting the second layer down once the thing is constructed, that way, when I need to rip it up it will be easier. Then this came to mind!

    Boar, That stuff looks pretty good. Not knowing what you'll be doing in your shed, I do have a couple of comments for you to think about.

    1. Anything you move on that floor will need to be on wheels or carried. I don't think the raised squares will allow you to slide or drag anything across it.

    2. If you're going to be working in there on your knees, you're going to feel those raised squares after a few hours.

    3. Spills. Gasoline spills will void your warrantee, and I'm thinking any petroleum based product will deteriorate the product. Also, liquids can seep between the joints on your tiles and damage your plywood subfloor. Poly sheeting placed on top of your plywood can prevent this though and a few strategically placed screws will hold the tiles in place.

    Just my thoughts, Bob

    That's looking good so far! I'm looking forward to seeing the progress and seeing it finished. I'm hoping to put in something similar, but bigger, to house my implements. I'm tired of them being outside and Sweetie is tired of looking at them!

    One question - you mentioned that you're wanting to be able to move this once it's done. I think that's a good idea, but... are you sure your truck is big enough to do the job???

    Mark, GREAT point about moving the building! Max over the road width is 8.5' (102") so a permit would be required!

    Boar, Back to the drawing board! If you're intent on moving this later, don't use any nails, screw or lag bolt your sides together. Same with roof trusses and roofing. Trusses can be nail together, but attach the to your top plates with screws. Build it with a PLAN on dismantling it for moving! You may have to leave the base there, but the rest should be a legal load for a flatbed trailer. Bob

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. Probably should of consulted GTT beforehand.

    The property it will eventually be moved to is about 5 miles away (all country side roads with plenty of shoulder). Pretty laid back around here, so we'll have to see about a permit. I will have to ask around about moving buildings this size. There is a guy down the road that sells and delivers pre-constructed buildings, a lot of which are 10 ft wide. I will have to pay attention how he does it. I know he has a tilt-flatbed too to do it, but no details. I have about five years to figure it out, before we intend on moving. Worse case scenario, if I have to leave the shed, I guess I will have to leave it. I will consider bolting it together though. Likely pay off later, knowing I can disassemble it.

    I think the secondary flooring is a good idea. Plywood will be the cheapest, maybe painted beforehand in an attempt to prevent liquid absorption. In my enclosed trailer, I painted the floor and ramp with deck paint with a bit a grit to it, to limit slip when wet. I have thanked myself several times for doing that, as I have seen a couple people bite it on their slick trailer ramps.

    I see what your saying about the weathertechs. Good information.

    As for updates, I finished three trusses yesterday and made majority of the truss 2x4 cuts. Headed to Menards this morning for more connector plates, and a few more 2x4s, as a couple of the 2x4x10s were not in an acceptable condition. I should get a few more trusses made after work today - I need 10 total. I will upload pictures of the trusses when complete.
