Building a shed

{Written by: Jen}

So just a few weeks ago my dad began building a shed in their backyard. He considered buying a kit and going that route, but after tearing out their old deck they had a lot of scrap redwood lying around. His total project cost was around $700.

The shed is about 10’x12′ and used about 60 2x4s. He opted for a skylight instead of a window because it was cheaper and easier to install. The siding and paint came from leftovers from the house, they have been slowly insulating, residing, and painting the exterior. You can check out a video slide show of the rest of the pictures here. Don’t mind the title of the video, my dad has a funny sense of humor that can sometimes border inappropriate, don’t tell my mom, but I think it’s hilarious.
