David needed to replace his rotted out farmhouse shed and wanted to go for a more modern look. Instead of shelling out the big bucks for a readymade modern shed, he took a stab at building one of his own for a quarter of the price. I have to say I am in awe of his results.

For $3000, David demoed, hauled and started building from the ground up. It only took him a few days and some hard work. He used some great tricks to get a modern look without a modern price tag, like using a router on the exterior plywood walls to give them the appearance of more expensive planks. Goes to show you where a good design and some smart ideas can get you. At the end, he threw in a few perks like A/C and a refrigerator for a job well done.

This inspiration couldn’t have come at a better time, for I am in need of a similar project for this Fall. Thanks David!
