It's a most common shed ,22' x 14' or just about 300 square feet , the beauty of it all, is that from the outside , you would never know what's going on in there. Since I purchased the property back in July 08, I started on the inside first, winter came fast here in PA , and it's been cold since November. I can hardly wait to start some needed improvements to the outside of it, although it's a very solid structure.

Here is a small picture of what it looked like early on. This is my kilt wearing buddy explaining that a "stripper pole " would be a critical design element to the success of the layout. Of course my wife didn't see it the same way :

Then I added the French doors and dormer/porch:

I noticed you have tile in there. What kind of foundation does it have? Pier & beam? It does not look like there was a cement pad poured.

Thats right no poured foundation-which keeps local permits to a minimum-off grade, I added 1/2 plywood to the already 3/8" floor, then used 5/16th" cement board, then tile, it is noteworthy that the tile is 1/2 thick commercial stuff, with all that, the floor is solid as Sears , almost no flex whatsoever.

Interesting. I have 5/8ths treated plywood, 1/2 hard insulation, then 5/8ths OSB sub flooring. I'm betting I could tile the brew area as well. Sweet!

Which is better, because it's about 8 miles from home, I plan on keeping it somewhat conspicuous.

Seeing as you are keeping this conspicuous, and not inconspicuous as I would have thought, can I get turn by turn directions from Oxford area?
