I recently converted the 3D deck & shed plans into sketchup so that others can benefit. It was a lot of fun figuring out how to lift that heavy, wet, pressure-treated beam onto the posts all by myself.
The posts weren’t small either, when you consider they are almost 6 feet underground! Another month or so would pass before I could finish my custom shed doors, but I’m happy with the result. For longevity did you use an ice and water shield or rubber under the aluminum to protect the OSB?
Many many thanks again for doing this I can’t imagine how many homeowners you have inspired by the articulate details provided here. I am interest to know how the aluminum flashing was attached to the house so there would be no leaking. I’m trying to understand how you managed to concrete the floor of your shed with the two posts already installed.


I assume for the inside plywood wall closest to the house you prebuilt the wall with the plywood and lifted it into place.
I was hoping to find a flexible material that could be used between the bottom of the deck and the top of the shed for both esthetic reasons and to keep things from moving in. The deck is attached to the house and the post supporting the deck have attached to footings below the frost line.
The following youtube video covers some important factors to consider when building such a deck.
I wanted my shed to look as nice as I could make it… so I wrapped it in matching vinyl siding. I live in central NC and I’m considering doing the same thing under my screened in porch.
My trailer-lift project may have been my most gratifying project, but my shed has been the most useful. For building a shed under a deck, you can screw sheets of corrugated metal or fibreglass roofing to the furring strips.


I decided to put my shed entry on the left side of the deck, so I had to dig the hillside down and create a patio for the doorway. Good thing I allowed space for the concrete to heave in winter… because it did just that!
You can cut and install wood lattice around the deck foundation, so as to hide the storage area from view.
I am currently looking for someone to build me one like this so I can park the motorcycles during the winter clearing the garage for the cars!. For this purpose thicker lattice should be used, as it holds up better than the thinner lattice.
