Ken's Backyard Shed - A post & beam wood storage shed

                     Back to Ken's Home Page

I started building my shed many years ago when I turned a 150' Douglas Fir into 6x6 and 6x8 timbers in anticipation of building a shed for storage of my chain saw harvested lumber. During 2006, I prepared the site for the shed and built a foundation platform for the shed. During the spring and summer of 2007, I prepared all the timbers needed to create a 9'x12' shed with 8' high side walls. On October 27, 2007, with the help of seven friends, we finally got the shed structure assembled and made preparations for the roof. Click here to see the photos of the construction process.

Here are some photos of the shed after it got it's siding of cedar shingles in July 2008. It is now ready for use..

August 10, 2008: You can see the foundation of concrete retaining wall blocks with a patio block floor for the shed.

Note: the recycled windows that were removed from my house during remodeling projects.


Here is the inside of the shed showing how I have used it.

Note: the north end of the shed is open with a 3' overhang and overhanging trees that prevent rain from getting into the shed.
