As part of our job in increasing the function and look of our new building site, Nelson Tiny Houses built a great little electrical/storage shed. One of the challenges with the property is that with the mobile home gone, we need a place to plug in all our tools in the interim. This awesome little shed solved that problem as well as giving us a safe lock-up. It houses our main 200 amp panel, and once we build our shop, we'll run another 100 amps underground to a sub panel there. This will give us 100 amps of plugs for the yard (via the shed) and 100 amps for the shop.
The design is based on the V House look, and we clad it in corrugated steel roofing. This gives it a clean look that will last forever. Our plan is to side the shop in a similar fashion, once we build it, and visitors to the site will be dazzled by the galvanized glory. We re-used the main door; it was the door to a motorcycle mechanic that lived and worked on the property prior to Nelson Tiny Houses.
The back of the electrical shed faces inaccessible forest, so rather than putting metal siding where no one will see it, we up-cycled a bunch of cut-outs from steel and foam doors that we got for free from a local door builder. It works!
Thanks for checking in, more to come again soon.
