Custom Wood Shed

This was an interesting project. Here is a three cord wood shed built tall enough to walk in, yet with an overall low profile. The home owner wanted to see over the top from inside the house. This meant no cross ties inside the shed. And, as it turned out no plates or ridge either. Once again the floor is heavily timber framed with no metal fasteners and sits on a floating foundation. The decking is not fastened to the frame making it easily removed for seasonal cleaning, airing, and access to the stone piers beneath. There are doors on both ends. The internal framing is built in sections or bents incorporating wall and roof farming in one cross building piece. The cross bracing and 1 inch thick siding provide all the longitudinal strength needed. The facia boards and lowest siding board are Atlantic White Cedar for weather resistance.
