    I picked up lumber for a 10x12 footing today and will get that framed out tomorrow. My current thinking is that I really like the appeal of the saltbox style of shed, and am headed for that form of structure.

    Does anyone have a plan for a saltbox? I've seen a couple online, and one is a shed-building book, but I'm curiouis what others might have before I get started.

    Thanks

    No plans just get a picture and go from there.

    The carpentry program at my local high school makes salt box sheds to sell, he has two in there right now...I think they are even 10 x 12...maybe you could email him, ask if you could buy a set of plans from him?
    [email protected] (Brian) They are actually building me a coop right now, but not a salt box!

    Of course you wrote this in July, now that I've looked, so it probably doesn't make much sense in September!!!

    Quote:I'll shoot them a note right now. Thanks Cheryl. (Starting to frame the foundation today. The only part I'm not real clear on is how the roof is best framed.)

    Interesting. Thanks Mac.

    Hey, I made a dump run yesterday and went shopping in their lumber / brush pile. Found a gorgeous wood exterior door which will work nicely into this plan.

    Also found a garage sale for a guy who is leaving for Peru and he has a huge pile of lumber for which he wants $50. Gonna drop by today and look closer to see what's in the pile (It was all up in the rafters of his shed when I saw it yesterday.)
