This is the first of a two part video where I share my trash can storage shed build with you. I have been looking at these trash bins in the corner of the back yard since we moved into this house, and have been looking forward to building a proper storage shed for them. This week I finally made the time to build this small shed for my trash cans.

  1. Wow thank you so much for sharing this. In western Canada these are mandatory because of the wild animals

  2. Im not trying to be a hater i love your videos good job i love your work but what is the point of this build

  3. Did you use treated lumber on the bottom frame where it sits on the ground ? Or does it matter ? BTW I love your channel.

  4. A beautiful woman who can teach me carpentry? I'm so in love right now. Sorry…um anyway…thanks for the great video. Simple project but you've got all the important tips and the plans/tools too! Wish every how-to video covered all the bases similarly.

  5. In uk if we have two wheelie bins we take the wheels of one add wheel to the other bin through the handle on the lid 🚌🚌🚌🚌 cut a hole in it at the front tadaaaa bobsleigh ….. cool build tho πŸ–’πŸ–’πŸ–’πŸ–’πŸ–’

  6. April, just FYI. Your link for your plans is dead. I am actually in the process of building an enclosure and I cant seem to log onto the page for this.

  7. April you are my hero, this channel rocks! I'm just getting into small woodworking projects and have found your videos and website EXTREMELY helpful! Keep at it!

  8. Dont forget to use Stainless steel screw for Outdoor projects so the nails dont rust, and it will last longer
