Excited for my shed to be built today. 10x16 with an 8 foot sidewall.

Anyone build one out with shelves and such? Looking for ideas. Will be used for all the typical stuff, tools, work bench, etc.

I screwed bicycle hooks into startegic places in the ceiling to hang my vicitims.....errrrr I mean larger tools/weedeaters and such. Seems to help keep the place less cluttered.

Run electricity to it. If you don't do it you will find yourself needing it.

Yeah thats a must. miter saw, table saw, battery chargers. All that crap has to be out in the shed.

My lot in Tega Cay, as most lots in Tega Cay, does not allow for a shed. Sucks.

You might be better putting a subpanel out there rather than just a circuit or 2, doubt youd want to have to go inside should the 1 breaker trip....

We've got a ground-up 10x16...

My biggest piece of advice is to go ahead and seal it up as best you can, while letting the roof vent stay open for circulation. I've killed several black widows in ours the past couple years, and that is something you don't want your boys being around.

Another thing to look for is our builder was kinda careless when putting the outer boarding on, and missed the studs pretty bad in places (he then re-nailed into the studs, but left all his misses)... I had to cut off a lot of nails on the inside...

I think mine get in around the doors... so I'm going to put in some weatherstripping, etc this winter.

Also, any little crack and crevice will need to be filled to totally prevent them... My shed is in a partially wooded plot, so that doesn't help... If Zod's is going to be in an open, yard-type area, they won't be as bad either...

You can also spral thresholds and such with Ortho or a comparable insect spray... that will help some too...
