    This plan offers a wide range of styles and sizes to choose from. From basic to fancy, many of the styles can be adapted to meet most needs. I would recommend this Plan to a friend. [ Check Details Here⇒> ] good Guide! explains everything very clearly

    Great video Alex it was really helpful for me, I found a UFO on your video on minutes (4:53) flying at high speed almost invisible but you can play it frame by frame. Remember to stop the video on 4:53 and slow it down, the space ship is visible for one second only.

    One word of advice. You should have watched some videos before making one. Pretty much everything here is done the wrong way!

    Thanks for the video Alex. Can you apply the same adhesive between the base and the rolled shingle? I need to replace the base paper and rolled shingle on a porch that is 10 x 12'.

    I generally can't stand people who bash others work from behind a keyboard…….but where on Earth did you get the idea that it was a good idea to glue down the felt paper like that?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just built a 10×12 shed for storing my woods using Ryan's shed plans [ Check Details Here⇒> ]. I love the easy step by step instructions, they are so clearly penned down that even a newbie can use them to design like a pro. It's amazing!

    What guage (thickness) is your metal roof ?

  • Steve Atkin 8 months ago

    Add drip edge around roof before metal and cover the sheathing edges

    What width is the roof of this shed? You say that you cut an 8' long panel to make 2 4' lengths, but you didn't mention width.

    The roofing panels I can buy here in Canada can be any length I want but come in 3' coverage widths making the panels approximately 3' 2" wide. 

    Did you have to trim the panels vertically as well as cuttin ghorizintally to fit your roof?

    Since cutting of the metal roofing metal on the flat is very easy and cutting on the major ribs it difficult, it was disappointing to see that between 3:00 and 3:02, the cutting of the major ribs was edited out.  We would have benefited from watching your technique with dealing with cutting through the major ribs. Also, at 4:00, it is surprising that your metal sheeting does not completely cover the underlayment — i.e., paint or not, I would think it would deteriorate prematurely when exposed — even a little.  Adding flashing and/or a drip edge will definitely prolong the life of the underlayment. All in all, some excellent ideas.  Thanks for posting.

    How much does it reduce the noise by? I just bought a 7,500 watt unit and it's crazy loud.

      Without tilt angle rainwater will simply rot the wood.

  • Rick Roll 8 months ago

    why not 6 bucks for galvanized drip flashing?

    Several builders have sent us photos of the insides of their generator sheds showing electrical hookups and how the generator fits in the shed. You can view them on our Owners Shed Pictures page on our website

    looks good- did the the metal roof make the running unit noisier than if it were made of asphalt paper?

  • Michael Francaviglia 8 months ago

    Thank you for the videos and for the informative commentary. I purchased the plans (somewhat lacking in details) and watched each of the eleven segments (about six times each). To my amazement I constructed the shed (and it looks like yours)! This is a major personal accomplishment. I was the kid in shop class whose instructor said "made the best firewood in the class" when describing my final project, a book case. Additionally, I learned a lot of tips from you. Your guidance was crucial.

    Would of liked to hear it! Volume is all the way up on both the video and my speakers and it still isn't playing…

  • Bill McGonigle 8 months ago

    Thank you for the series. Very informative and the editing and subtitles are well-done too. I checked out your website and it gave me some good ideas. The sample plans look nice – I'll be back for a few plans later this summer.
