    Wow, that was cool. I never expected such an eclectic mix when I started this thread.

    Well I ran out of motivation to build a funky shed from scratch, broke down and bought a pre-cut timberframe kit. Of course I waited until it is supposed to be 90 degrees and humid to install the piers this weekend. :lol3

    Here it sits after delivery the other day fresh from the sawmill.

    This shed will have zero plywood.

    It will sit approximately where the log splitter is and measure 10' X 14' with double doors on the gable end facing the yard. Then I'll put a 10'ish X 14' carport/roof over the wood splitting zone to keep the splitter out of the weather.

    Timber frame? That will make a nice ADV guest haus.

    Certainly! I'll post up some build pics as we get after it. It will have a tin roof, electricity and half the fun will be building out a workbench across the back wall (2' X10') as well as shelving. I haven't purchased any windows yet but will add them as I see fit.

    Well we got it together and built the mini barn.

    Nice shed for sure and thanks for the explanation on the finish. I see that here and there on buildings and wondered whether it was a pre-finished siding product or something applied in the field. I've been watching a few houses near me with that finish and it seems to remain fresh looking for years. Mine is going to breathe for a few weeks and then I'll hit it with something, probably dark brown penetrating stain. That, a ramp, transom window on the back wall, electrification and it'll be done.

    We put a dark oil stain on the base and ramps. The electrical hookup is awesome because I have a switch at the house. In the Spring I can install my battery and keep it on the BatteryTender while still in the shed.

    We hit the shed with some Olympic stain/sealer and put up the ledger for a roof system off the side of the shed.

    Nice! I was worried that I wouldn't have enough room in the guest haus with my bike parked in there with me. Now I can back the rig under the side roof. Thank you.

    It does look pretty lonely without a tractor or some such implement tucked in there...

    I haven't got any complaints with the pre-cut kit I got from them and they also sell plans.

    With a little snow now. Faring well through its first winter.

    Time for someone else to share an outbuilding. I won't be building any more, this year. :lol3
