Doesn't look like much. All the lumber and trusses are banded together, he had a rollback flatbed, just angled it back and slid the whole thing off! He had to unload the bags of cement by hand, though.

Looks like the start of a great project!! Watch your thumbs! :D :D And then have fun filling it up!!

I really lucked out about a month ago and scored two 12 x 24 sheds. A campground near us was sold off for development and they auctioned off the "cabins" that were there. They were basically 12 x 24's with various bump-outs built on them for water heaters, kitchens, bath's, porches etc. The catch was you had to get them moved within 2 weeks or lose them. I only hoped to get one for storing the lawn tractor, splitter, rototiller, etc. but ended up with two since they were going so cheap (musta got auction fever)! My kid now has a deluxe playhouse and I have my storage. I had some great help from a fellow coal burner getting the cabins ready to be moved. It was a bit of a race to get the pads prep'ed and stone brought in ahead of moving day. I hired a local guy that sells sheds to move them for me and he did a great job. They both made it to their new home in one piece.

My wife is going to kill me when she gets home and sees this. Good thing it's dark out. I guess my usual "That's been there for years!" won't work this time. :shock:

Now that is a nice building. If you have us all over and let us put in a couple of s/s poles, bar, and a few tables we could make it a nice looking place, oh and I guess some shutters too, lol. But really it is a nice building for doing things in, Wish I had one. I spend to much money on my John Deere heard at least that is what the wife says. She won't let me spend any more money till I get rid of some of this stuff.

I've got a CB Structures building also. It's four years old and I'm still very happy with it. If you look at the pictures, notice how the poles go all the way to the roof line. Makes the entire building stronger. It's one of the little things that distinguishes CB Structures from some of the others.

They finished around noon today. Next week the doors will be installed, still waiting on the cupola. I'm also waiting on the excavator to return to grade it.
