Wow! Thanks to everybody for the great comments!

Why not a shed?
That was my first plan. I came up with the organizer to go inside it, but then I realized, “hey, I’m already building everything the way I want. All it needs is sides and a top!” That’s what led to this idea.

Plus, I admit I was a little influenced by all the youtube guys moving shops lately. (Come on, Izzy Swan, Diresta, AND Mike&Lauren!) Someday when the need arises, this would conceivably fit (unloaded, of course) in the back of a truck—much moreso than a whole entire shed!

firefighterontheside, great idea about the siding. I don’t know why that never occurred to me.

Also, I think many of the rest of you have talked me out of wheels. (Especially JBrow. That was really thorough!) I never had any epic journey in mind, I just wanted to be able to pull the thing away from the wall to give me more of a straight shot for getting things in and out. But now it sounds like it’d more trouble that it’s worth. I think instead I’ll just make sure the sheet goods side is on the outside and put it up on blocks. K.I.S.S, right?

As far as a roof, I’m not overly concerned. Since it isn’t a shed, I’m planning on putting the whole thing under a deck. Maybe though… I dunno. I mean, it may get a little water through the cracks, but definitely no snow to worry about. I guess I could be talked into it.

GR8HUNTER, I don’t know if you were joking, but I like the compressor idea. Just need to find a way to anchor it down so it doesn’t go silently into that good night. Literally. ;)
