So I have been needing a place for some time now to store spare parts, my snowblower, and various other junk. I am borrowing barn space for White Lightning because I can’t bear to leave her outside. Needless to say, I had this space in the woods that I weedwacked, and added free fill. The idea with this is that I want to spend as little money as possible because right now I have next to none. So, free fill, free metal roofing that is probably garbage but we can make it work, some free rocks cause rocks basically reproduce where I live jocolor, and the idea is to be out just the cost of some pressure treated lumber, some screws, paint, and gravel.

I still need to pour some gravel and then I’m going to wait until next year to build because lumber prices are god awful right now...

Oh, the rocks are going to be used to build retaining walls, the round ones on the sides and the flat ones being stacked and maybe mortared on the back wall. Still need some more but I won’t have any trouble finding enough. lol! lol!

Note: the final structure will probably be 6x10x8.

The link didn’t work. Maybe screenshot? I don’t know, technology isn’t my forte. (Says the guy on the forum lol) I haven’t forgotten this and I have been woeking on the lot but not a lot of progress.

Keep an eye out for one of those tent garage things that someone is throwing away. There are several tube videos showing how to make one into a shed with metal like you have. I plan to make one. I have lots of plans... sigh. But, it is a good way to make an almost free garage. My personal junkyard has all the parts.

Old one-piece swing up garage doors work really well to build walls and should be able to be found free or cheap

Good ideas all around. Smile If y'all wanted a picture here's what I'm thinking, although mine will be much narrower. Got it off google if you were wondering. Lawn tractor...carport...thing? Maxresdefault

Quick update here. I poured some gravel a month or so ago and put some retaining rock in. May just leave it as-is and tarp it, IDK. I have a lot of projects in the queue now. It’s a coin toss at the moment.Lawn tractor...carport...thing? 4c212a10
