I do not know what is the most appropriate word I call “caseta” (little house)
I’ve been too long without posting anything
After building this house, I bought an old sailboat (built in 1978) Many repairs, restorations and many hours of dedication.
I could not take more photos of the process. The wood thickness is 35mm, The measurements are 5,25 m x 3,5 m.
I use it to store the canoe, a table saw, a trailer, antique furniture, etc.
I hope you like it

Very solid looking storage shed, in Montana that roof would have been way more expensive than the rest of
the building. Thank you for sharing.

Looks nice. How’d you do the corner joinery? Can you post a pic of the corners?

I’ve posted a drawing and a picture. The drawing isn’t complete because I’ve done it this morning very quick but I hope it’s clear enough.
I’ve grouped the wood planks to make four cuts of “dovetails”, same time .
Draw1: In order to don’t have to graduate the circular saw every time, I put a piece of Wood of the same thickness “A” to cut the left “dovetail”.
Draw2. To do the dovetail’s right cut, I didn’t put the wood “A”, so the “B” piece of wood was nearly to be sliced with the wood chisel at the drawing 3.
Later this, in the drawing 4 I cut the angles with the circular saw at 45º
To calculate the “C” dovetail depth I’ve used a simple ecuation.
