With a sledge hammer and a Ryobi reciprocating saw, my wife and I tore down our old horse barn. After pulling out all the nails and removing the shingles from the roof sheathing we started on her new tool shed.
I got to buy myself a new Ryobi 18 volt drill - driver, a Ryobi impact driver, and a new Ryobi circular saw. Then using the 6x6s, 4x4s, and a good part of the rest of the lumber from the barn, we began to screw the new shed together. We used only a handful of nails, if I want to take this one down, I'll just unscrew it.
We put in an old window we had lying around, hung a sliding door, and gutters. My wife added a flower box and trellis. A good friend in the roofing business put on a metal roof, we put a gravel floor in it and now if things go bad I have a place to sleep.
