    I originally posted this under OT section, and it timed out before I could finish it up.

    built this shed out of some old cedar fence boards. I bought about $100 in hinges and latches, 2- 4x4x8 treated base with a partial sheet of 3/4in ply bottom. Light weight tar paper lining / roof underlayment.

    I had old fence boards, and some old comp shingles.

    It's about 6ft 2in wide, about 30in deep, 7ft 2in at the top of the front edge, and 7ft 5.5in at the back.

    Had to post the ubiquitous 'wet' picture... (has helped warp the doors where I want them).

    The doors fit too well for the rustic appearance! Good use for the boards - I want a shed like that, but it will be at least 2-3 hundred in materials if I use all-new.

    IIRC, the hinges and hardware ran me about $50 or so.

    A sheet of 3/4 ply was like $30
    two 4x4x8 treated posts. about $30.
    $20 or so for the moisture barrier / tar paper

    I have another similar one I built a few years ago. It's made from 1x12x8ft cedar boards. I stained the prior one using 'superdeck' and that shed still looks really good. It houses my compressor and a pile of jeep parts and jeep paint.
