Well i got the floor all layed out. Next i start working on the walls. Check out the new pics at . Just so you know I am using the skyshed plans and they are very good plans so far. I changed them a little bit. Here is how so far in case you guys are looking at these plans.

1. the side board for the floor called for 1x4's i used 2x4's

2. The plans call for 1x10x12's for the flooring. I used 3/4 inch tongue and groove OSB plywood.

That is all the changes so far. Let me know what you guys think of it so far and please feel free to ask any questions. I know i had a lot before i started.
