Modern cedar shedcomments (0) August 11th, 2011 in Project Gallery
Our home is a flat-roofed midcentury modern design, so when it came time to build a shed, the roof needed to be flat (or nearly flat) to fit with our house style. I chose to use 6 by 6 timbers for the foundation, and the floor inside is crushed gravel. The siding is cedar tongue and groove, and the roof and back wall are corrugated galvanized steel. For the front corners, I used 3/4 inch aluminum U-channel to cover the edges of the front siding, and butted the side siding into that, as detailed in the photo. I decided to build two swinging doors for access, aesthetics, and cost. I had originally planned on buildign a sliding barn door, but I was concerned about security and the functionality of one large door--the main purpose of one half of the shed is to house our large walk-behind mower.
