Stained the aspen with a standard Cedar stain. 

Today, we installed the ridge and 1/2 the rafters.

So is this a tool shed?  Is the loft space for storage, or do you plan to sleep there when you're in the doghouse?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Thanks for the tutorial  8)

Do the rafters meet each other above the beam?

The shed will be closed in; I will add heat and electric.  That way I can use this space as a small workshop to keep my busy during the winter months.

Rafters are 2"x6" and secured with 8" timber screws.  The rafters have bird's mouths cut at ridge and plate.  I allowed 1/2" to 3/4" space at the peak (between rafters) as the ridge log was far from straight and true.  In general I fitted rafters individually.   Next time, first thing, I will find 3 very straight and and very true logs to set aside for plates and ridge.  It will make rafter cutting so much easier.

Today, we finished installing the rafters, added some 1"x6" nailers and put up the tin.   Ordered the ridge cap, but that will take a week or two to get in.




Rafters installed and nailers for the tin.




Screwing in the last piece of tin.

 


Tin installed sans ridge cap

I spend three days with my younger brother putting up this structure.  Man, it doesn't get much better than that.  And, this was the first project in years where I actually had help.   A guy sure could get spoiled with an extra set of hands on the job site.

Looks great and thanks for sharing some pics!  I really like the stain you used.

Ive never been involved or apart of anything in this sort of construction (timber frame). It looks like it would be a very rewarding and fun project to tackle sometime!! the pics are great. Out of curiosity, how much does something like that cost to build, or do you have your own mill?

I see where the cross piece under the window looks a lot straighter now. ;)

Bet that wasn't a pleasant surprise.  ::)

Looking great, and wonder if the neighbors have figured it out yet?  :)

Soon you will need the wood stove in there.

Window cross piece?  What do you mean?

Oh, yeah, layout was done on both front posts together.  Checked and double checked.  However, if you cut the girt mortise on the wrong side of the 48" mark, things get a bit un-level.    How do I know this?   Well, when I figured it out on raising day, I was glad there were not children outside playing. 

So far, someone has called the dog-gone building inspector on this project two times.  10' x 12' needs no permit.  First time, we pulled a tape on a spot  that was 9' 11 3/4"; inspector was happy.  Next time, he was still happy, but he let me know galvanized roofing was a no-no in town (I should have looked into this before roofing).   So, I will be pulling off the metal and putting on a different roof.   Whoever turned me in may not be so happy, as the new roof will be blue (but legal per code) cause my wife likes blue. 

Actually, the inspectors in town are really good guys.  You would think if someone had an issue, they would come talk with me.  Nope, here in MN, folks are civil; they smile at you, and then they call the inspectors to turn you in. However, when I get done, the siding will be painted to match the house and from the outside it won't look like a barn structure. At that point, I think the concern will go away.

When they wrote the code for 10' x 12' without a permit, they were probably thinking a Mendards shed, not a timber frame.

Cost?  

I have my own mill and trees.  However, the mill is at the Stump Ranch, so, it took me some time to cut, mill, and haul.  And, the dimensions had to change a bit in that 14' 6" is about as long as I dared haul in short-bed truck.


Cost is below:

Concrete Pad = $1200 (poured by a local guy)
Windows = $300 (Building Materials Outlet Store)
Roofing  & Rafters = $450
Screws and Such = $100

I think if you purchased the timbers from a local sawyer, you would have 2K into the timbers.

Replaced the roof with something blue.  Now compliant with the city code.





Working on the siding when I have time.

Would you be willing to post a cut list for this building? - we have a 10' x 12' no permit required as well.  I have 2 - 16'x 36" logs ready to mill come springtime.  Somewhere I have a book by Jack Sobon where he shows how to build a similar structure but since we just moved its in a box - probably at the bottom of the pile

http://peelinglogs.blogspot.com/2011/03/timber-frame-plan10-x-12-shed.html

Here are the plans, there are a couple of things that maybe aren't quite right (i.e. center post is reversed...not on purpose).   The sketchup plan is posted as well.  If you download the sketchup plan and have Timberframe Rubies, you can adjust the model and make your own shop drawings.   

The plans show the ridge and the plate at 16', I had to go with 14' because I couldn't get anything longer in the back of my truck.

Installed a door with big hinges as it is one heavy son-of-a-gun.  I just have to finish up the battens and loft planking, then, I will be ready to move things in. 

December 27, no snow in Minnesota...different this year.

Are you planning on decorating the shed for the holidays???

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

It looks great!
