The gambrel shed shown on the site is one of my favorite and have actually built the 12x12. The main reason I decided to go with this design is because of the space. With the gambrel shed no space goes to waste. I added a loft and lots of shelves. All the clutter that was in my garage is now neatly organized and I still have plenty of room left.

Tree house plans
Building a tree house can be a great family project. Getting the children to help will give them basic building skills.
When building the tree house begin by finding a sturdy tree. Thee tree should be tall and give out plenty of shade. If the tree you have chosen has three sturdy limbs it will make building the platform easier. The tree house should be about six feet from the ground. Adding legs to the platform will give better support for the tree house and children's weight.

These chairs can be built using common tools and wood. The wood you use should be strong enough to hold your weight. This chair can be built using hand tools, but having power tools will make it allot easier. A jigsaw, circular saw, router and sander are the typical electric tools used.
