« Part 2: Construction Part 3 of The Journey of my Shed Shop series Part 4: Moving In »

EDIT-9/3/2021: The completed shed is 12’x14’ with 8’ walls. Going to reinforce the floor with an extra layer of plywood this weekend and then start moving in my tools. The floor that was installed would be sufficient for a storage shed, but there is an ever so slight bit of flex in the plywood between the joists. Another layer will close up any slight gaps (1/64” to 1/16”) that are between the existing sheets and make the floor more rigid.

I agree, not much info. Figured the pictures explained that I hired a company to build the shed. The juicy details will come as I start getting the shop setup :)

Yes! Crew had most of pieces prefabricated before they arrived and they built the whole thing in my backyard in about 9 hours. 3 man crew.

Unfortunately no power yet, for now I will run an extension chord from the garage until I can get an electrician to run the power for me. Electricity and me haven’t always gotten along!

I would go in and add hurricane clips before you fill it up or insulate it. I don’t see any. They can be very beneficial, especially in your area.

Good point made by Northwoods man, hurricane clips would be a must. other than adding the electrical, looking good. You may find down the road that the 12’ x 14’ maybe a little small. But that depends on the tools you have and the projects, but you are off to a great start.
