Wow! Great job, I think you have plenty of storage in the shed for lumber. Nice looking shed!!!

Hahaha, didn’t want to display the mess inside :-).
But since you asked … I added a few pics. Mainly to show how I did the gambrel roof on the inside as that structure was not fully included on the drawings. I initially wanted to keep the space directly under the roof as large as possible, so I could hang the dinghy I made around the same time. That’s why I used no cross-beams. In the end I never hung the boat there, but I can use the space for hanging one of my bikes…

Impressive – you got the most interior space possible with your gambrel design – kudos!

Great job, good details. And yes storage with the gambrel roof. It should be a wood shop not a garden shed.

That’s a very appealing structure, from the design, right down to colors, and the light over the door. Great job

What do you call that trussing system, kind of a scissored gambrel? I’m use to Gambrels having thicker members, and not so many scissored members.

That’s totally outstanding. Sure wish I had room for something like that.

I’m 6”8” tall so you get a big thumb’s up for the head room…......although that doorway needs to be taller.
