12x24. And man! It was a tight fit getting between the garage and tree. Only a couple a couple of inches to spare!
Just need to do a bit of landscaping. And get this bad boy wired!
 
Nice Steve, glad it fit. You are going to love it.

Do you know someone that can wire that for you :emoji_laughing::emoji_laughing:

Have fun with your new digs Steve.

I'm trying to figure that out:emoji_wink:! I was shocked how $$ Romex has gotten. Everything else electrical for that matter.

I hear you on that Steve, Tuesday we get the new property and I start the week after doing the ground work and I am building a 12 x 20 shed for the items i will remove from the building.
even though I buy and build everyday. I was shocked at the amount for just the material to build that shed.

Nice, but I'm jealous Steve😉. If I could get something like that in my backyard, I'd have one in a heartbeat. But only have 10' of clearance on the side. Enjoy that...
 
Nice! I have a very small man cave, 8 x 6 Amish built.

Placed on the edge of one of my fields 1/4 mile from my house.

100 watt solar and deep cycle marine battery. DC lighting and a very small TV.

Big Buddy propane heater.

Interior decorated with hunting/fishing themed tin signs.

I hunt from it or video wildlife or just have a few beers and relax!

Enjoy yours!

And that roof insulated .

Been like that for awhile . I was shocked to see it under lock and key .
Bad thing about retirement is all the stuff I have to buy .

That's gonna be nice .
 
That shed is HUGE!!! Steve. We need to get something similar, but smaller in scale. Our garage is just about out of space.

Thanks Chop! A guy it work bought some. They unlock the cage. And carry it to the register with you. I'm not sure if I'll insulate anything for this year.

Nice project! Looks like the hard part is done, now moving on to the next hard part lol.

Looking forward to the updates as well!

I understand . They get so hot . I have that gazebo that's open on 4 sides with metal roof . It gets so hot you can't hardly sit under there in the summer . Nothing a couple fans won't fix though .

That's a really nice looking building Steve. Enjoy, and you know how we like pics 😉
Lol! I know!

That's a good looking shed Bub...

I visualize one end being partitioned off and the whole room then insulated... A reefer unit installed and TA DA .. A walk in cooler for processing...
Lol! Don't let Ann see this!

Our Gazebo is the same. I use a fan if it gets too hot.

That's a beautiful space.

Hope that tree doesn't get bigger...
Thank you! That's the neighbors tree. And it should have been taken down years ago. It's in rough shape.

I cant see it Steve. Is it to the left of that big smoke house with the double doors and windows.
:emoji_laughing:. Congrats :emoji_thumbsup:
lol! Thanks!

Great start to a great man cave!

Jim
Thanks Jim!
