Building a shed on pier blocks – Tool shed, play shed, burn shed, and grill shed … No matter what shed you are dreaming about, do the Self-readers have a good suggestion for you. The special thing about our shed is that it has a glass roof that is “lifted”. It gives a lot of light because there is glass in the roof itself, but also in the sides of the raised roof construction.
The advantage of having taken as the light source and not the windows in the walls is that there is plenty of room on the walls for storage. We have shelves from floor to ceiling in the shed and also have room for all garden tools to hang on the wall. The tool shed is built with posts and clinker-built boarding. The roof is raised with rafters and shingles, except for the middle piece at the smoking, which is replaced by a glass section.

The roof is lifted by building a wooden skeleton to which the glass is mounted. The extension is built of wood, like the rest of the house, and kept in the same style, so you do not notice that it is there. It just looks like an extra window, but with the same function as a large closet. The slotted windows can be opened as doors and inside there are shelves.
