  1. Applaud the use of screws. You’ll get an 85% stronger hold by pre-drilling the holes according to a Georgia Tech study👍🏻

  2. I worked in manufacturing as a tool and die maker, and never built a shed or outside structure in my life. The way you plan your work using jigs etc, to preclude problems ahead of time and make it all come together easily to GUARANTEE a good result is very much how I did in the shop and these are hands down the finest videos for a woodworking beginner like myself. Your presentation and instructions assume nothing in terms of the listeners expertise level or lack thereof and are clear, concise and thorough. In short, if the viewer carefully follows your instructions, it's impossible to go wrong. Thanks so much for taking the time to make these videos, I'm pumped and can't wait to start on my project!!!

  3. I am planning to build a 7×17 garden shed. How can I use the plan and change the dimensions? I would appreciate your comments. Thanks.

  4. This is by far the best shed construction series on the net, so many excellent tips, top quality and many thanks, going to build a 16×9 shed and you have helped so much, many thanks.

  5. I have been working on a 16×12 shed for my wife for almost two years now, (it's a Summer kitchen) Electricity, heat air and hot and cold water, doing it all myself and I have made many mistakes, I wish I had watched videos like this before I started the work.

  6. Fantastic Tips…..Shout out to you for showing how to do this by yourself…and I am by myself. I love to work on my sheds and I get a way better shed made better than the expensive Home depot sheds and at 1/2 the cost.
