    • Thanks Ronny. The doors were a headache, and they still don’t swing quite right (I’m too much of a perfectionist sometimes) But they do look awesome!!! And that’s what matters most to me. Glad I can inspire you.

  1. Absolutely amazing! I love this post. Yes, I actually read every word and examine every picture. I wish I could build. You lie, you do have talent! What do you have on the path under the pavers? It doesn’t look like gravel. Is it easy on the feet? I never seem to have on shoes, lol.

    • Thanks Tracie, I’m obviously pretty proud of this one. The whole side of the house is pea gravel. There wasn’t much grass in the beginning and pea gravel was a natural answer. It is soft enough to walk on, I rarely wear shoes on summer evenings too, but it sticks to the bottoms of my feet. That’s what the concrete pavers are for…

  2. Wow! Yard Goals! I absolutely love the design detail of the slatted fence/doors. Thank you for your continuing inspiration!

  3. Beautiful and simple “ consistent”
    design!:). Isn’t it wonderful to have such a beautiful work space!

  4. It looks so organized and tidy. I am wondering why it is that have all this stuff spread out in a 30’X60’ barn? Then I have to look for it all. 😀. Looks like it is time for me to get better organized. Sometimes you can have too much space!

  5. Let’s back up to the doors…how did you hinge them? Its perfection as always, but would love to know how you did the doors. Much love to you both!

    • Hi Amy! Glad you like it. I just used the hinges off the old shed. Gave them a shot of black spray paint….. even used the same screws. The doors were a headache to build. The slats distorted them and made them stretch and sag. They don’t offer much protection from the rain either. They look great And, of course… the look is always the most Important part to me.

  6. The whole area looks awesome. Great job! Do you have written instructions that someone (me) could hand a builder to replicate?

    • Sadly, no. I just made it up on the spot. If I can do this….. I’m sure an experienced carpenter could figure it out from just a photo or two.

  7. This thing is amazing. Great job! Do you have written instructions that someone (me) could hand a builder to replicate?

    • Sorry, but I don’t. I just made it up as I went along. Pretty sure a capable carpenter could just copy my build though. Show him a picture or 2.

  9. Just found your post and it’s exactly what I was looking for. Brilliant build ! Loved the part about referring to your skill level to that of a 10 year old….NOT ! Thank you for posting, I will be using this as my basis to build a garden shed.
