    I have zero carpentry skills, and just can't bring myself to pay $1,500 or more for a new storage building. So I've been scanning Craigslist for months, hoping to find a decent deal.

    Well, guess what? Yesterday I did! How about a 10x10 wood building for $250??? The mover is charging $350 to pull a permit, pick it up, haul it 100 miles, and then set it up. Seems like a decent deal to me. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to get a new building for $600.

    If the ad is still up, you can see it here: http://houston.craigslist.org/for/1029256374.html

    I'm
    hoping they leave all the shelving it in so I can use the wood to build nest boxes and stuff.

    Giddy with delight...

    Thank you! I think so too. I looked at the sheds at Lowes when I went by there today, and didn't see anything near a 10x10 that was under $1500. Even the plastic ones were over $900, and they don't have windows.
