Notes on shed construction

A few resources I’m finding useful in building a shed:

  1. A neat kit from Lee Valley, which includes a detailed plan for a basic shed, including a parts list, and hardware that should make attaching the roof trusses easy (I hope!),
  2. Also acquired at Lee Valley, a reprint of a classic book published by the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service a million years ago (well, no, in 1969), with the charming title “Low-cost wood homes construction manual
  3. A text called “Advanced Wall Framing” which came in handy to make me feel better about a mistake I made in one of the few deviations from the plan that I made.
