Reader Project: Storage Shed Built on Platform Deck

Reader David Lee needed storage space, and a shed was the clear solution. What wasn’t clear was where to put it. His mountainside backyard offered various obstacles, so David came up with a unique DIY solution.

David Lee needed storage space, and a shed was the clear solution. What wasn’t clear was where to put it. His mountainside backyard offered every obstacle: slopes, tree roots, soggy spots and gushing runoff during heavy rains. To rise above those problems, David built a platform constructed just like a standard deck. Instead of stairs, David added a ramp to accommodate wheelbarrows and the snow blower more easily.

“My projects don’t always go as planned, but they always turn out OK. Sometimes even better than I expected!” – David Lee
