Building a Backyard Barn
About a month ago a friend who works at the Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa Alabama got enough wood to build a small mansion.
The timbers are huge 5″x6″ and up to 16 feet in length! They were used to ship assembly line robots from Germany to the Mercedes plant.
He knew I needed to shop/shed at the new home in Atlanta, so he loaded up a bushel and brought it to me. What a friend!
Moments after Jerry arrives with the timbers we strapped on our beards(not pictured) and began hacking away.
Materials finally make a late arrival.
Salvaged windows from Northside Material Brokers in Atlanta

Hand carved Birdsmouth joints for the roof joist
Jumping ahead to a finished shop! I hid all lighting behind the beams. Used the scrap to build front step/porch.
Bonus popsicle stick version!
