So here's the deal...I currently have a nice professionally built, vinyl sided, insulated, wired, etc. etc. shed, 10x10 in size. I have no garage option here either, just to clarify early on
Anyways...since its basically become the 'shop' I need some more storage area for actually STORING the stuff that my shop area has displaced. I bought a keter (Apollo 8x8) storage shed yesterday at Costco that I was going to use just for storing the mowers, pressure washer, snowblower, yard tools, etc. to facilitate this. But I really don't want a shanty town...and I just dont like the idea of having this big plastic box out there I guess (so it's prolly going back tomorrow, depending what I figure out here).
So I was thinking it might just be more versatile if I cut out one wall of the existing shed and added onto it with a section thats about 8x8?
For the engineers in the house:
I should also add the site is on a mild grade - and the current shed is living on a ~5-8" base of 3/4" crushed stone depending what corner its at, on top of which are 4x4 PT rails which are attached to the 2x8 PT framing w/ 3/4" cdx topped with 3/4" flooring particleboard making up the floor of the shed. I was considering adding the new 'wing' on more gravel as well. Just clearing the site, landscape fabric, then gravel like I did before.
Any thoughts experience etc...do share.
I should also add I've got framing & finish guns and a brad nailer at my disposal. I have a 10" compound miter saw, table/jig/skil/recip/saws, plus a pile of cordless tools...anything else I'd need specially?
