  1. Wow, I've been thinking about a combination storage shed and dog house (Lindy won't use her dog house) and this might just do the trick. My husband just says, mmhmm, which doesn't sound encouraging, so I'd probably have to buy it and build it myself.

  2. Not bad for the price but I would encourage people to just build their own with reclaimed materials. It's not that hard and much more rewarding.

  3. Thank you for your suggestion, Lloyd!

    Shortly after this post was published, I received my 1100lbs of pre-cut materials for my shed. Very easy set up. Spent most of the VetDay weekend building, and with limited experience/tools, I was remarkably successful. For someone who aspires to build something a little more in-line with Lloyd's fabulous collection of tiny homes, this has become both a valuable learning experience and a confidence builder. The shed is a very simple structure with definite expansion possibilities, it looks nice, and it's large enough to accommodate a ton of gear. I'm tickled!
