Carriage House Shed
I needed a shed to store my small trailer, tools and landscaping supplies. Our home is on a cul-de-sac and the best location was across the driveway from the house where it would be readily visible from the street. So rather than a "utility" building I decided to design and build something that would compliment the architecture of the house and, hopefully, enhance its value.
The shed is "L" shaped with steeply sloped rooflines, a small window with shutters and a skylight. It has two sets of carriage house style swinging doors hung on large decorative but functional "T" hinges and with hand wrought handles custom made by a Kentucky blacksmith I found online. All exterior finishes including roofing, siding, window, shutters and gutters match those on the house.
I designed and built the shed entirely myself. Much of the work was accomplished with the Ryobi One+ Lithium tools my wife gave me as a gift the Christmas prior to construction.
