Back in August, I decided to put in a shed. I went from this:

Wow. Sweet hut, Carl. :bigok:
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

With all that glass is it safe to assume it's a potting/gardening shed?

It's actually supposed to be a greenhouse per the literature (see the blog link) but yea, there's a bench in there just for doing potting and the only thing in the shed is gardening stuff (well, the outdoor furniture is in there right now due to winter).

I put three hose caddies on the back wall and have all the hoses hung back there.

Nice design.  I assume you guys in Colorado have to do something to prevent cold heaving.  Poured foundation or pole barn construction?

Actually treated wood base (you can see it in the blog posting). I contacted several local concrete companies because I wanted it done right but none even returned my calls/emails. After checking around a bit with neighbors and on line, I simply flattened out the ground, put some weed blocker down, put down the treated lumber, then filled in the gaps with pea gravel. :shrug: It's not rocking or anything so we'll see what the future brings.
