    Good evening everybody, last friday I got some culled lumber as I mentioned on my lat post for $54, I had to buy three more 4x6 treated posts and that's what I did with some of this culled lumber

    Here is the Lumber:

    and here is my new tractor and mower shed

    it is 20'x12' all what left to do: is getting some sheet metals and building two doors, so far I spend about $175 and I think I can get some overstocked sheet metal or wrong cut metals for another $200, but hey I am still doing real good compare to new materials, plus I have tons of lumber left over to build a big cat house for my cats and may be another coop.

    [​IMG] Nice find! And really nice build, sooo roomy. I have a feeling though that what you saved in lumber, you'll spend in wire. [​IMG] It will be so worth it.
