My old shed (which you see pictured to the left) has served
me well, but it is somewhat leaky and not really that solidly
built. It's basically galvanized metal on one side, scrap siding
on the other. Also, it just has one electrical line running from
a kitchen circuit, so whenever I start a power tool, the lights
So....after much research and many estimates, I decided to
have another shed built in the back of my long backyard lot.
The brick corners you see way back there kind of mark the spot
where the shed will be put.
I'm going to have a shed built from the ShedShop. It will
be 10' by 12' and will have a subpanel in it, run from my main
house panel. I will also have a proper line run from that subpanel
to the older shed. I plan to use the older shed for assembly
and storage (which I had little of before). The newer shed will
have just enough room for my stationary power tools --- my 14"
bandsaw, DeWalt bench table saw, 4"/6" belt & disc
sander, little 1"/4" belt and disc sander, router table,
miter saw, and 12" drill press. I will feel much better
with all those tools in a solid, leak-proof, and properly wired
shed!!!! I plan to put insulation and drywall in myself (I've
always wanted to try that after seeing it done all the time on
"This Old House"!!!), and, of course, paint it all.
It should be fun.
