He/She Shed

I needed a small workshop and the wife wanted a place of her own to relax, work on her hobbies, or exercise. A 12 x 40 shed split in two seemed a logical answer. To keep costs down we scoured local craigslist, big-box clearance racks, and visited the local Habitat for Humanities resale store. Results surprised me, all the windows and doors are dual pane, hurricane resistant glass, the floor is bamboo, and the interior door is a glass panelled french door - those items were under $500 total (3 windows, 4 doors, and 400' of flooring). I have built small 8x10 sheds before, so this was just a little wider and longer. With a little Internet is was fairly easy to figure out rafters and the more tougher pieces. The only wired tools used were the chop saw and table saw, all others including "transport" were Ryobi battery operated. I hate when projects like this end.
