16' x 16' Storage Shed

Thanks to the tips and tricks we picked up from Ana here, we were able to build our very own storage shed. We use it for storing our kayaking, sailing and camping gear for our company down here in the Bahamas (which is still a bit unorganized in the photo). It works so much better than what we had before in multiple kit sheds. We even have a loft up top for extra storage, electricity in there with a fan, fridge and lights... MAJOR UPGRADE :) We still need to paint it and finish a few things, but we are very thankful to have it up and being used.

My favorite thing is the door handle (a boat cleat) sliding barn door and the herringbone design for 'eye candy' :)

Thanks go out to Ana and her wonderful site! I would have never attempted this without the foundation I built here!
