    Does your shed have a gambrel barn roof? if so, you can put sleeping lofts "upstairs" and have more living area. A friend of mine did that and it worked well. Later she added a covered back porch for a washer, dryer and upright freezer.

    No we are going with 8 ft straight walls. Thinking of adding a smaller shed for washer and dryer and freezers.
    We have the basic layout figured out i think. May put a loft in to help with storage

    No heart attack thank goodness! Having her follow up with cardiologist. My best friend is taking me to pick up our temporary home. A camper. Going to save up and get the perfect shed and the finishes we want. With camper we dont have to rush.
