Here's the delima, I need a small shed, under 10x10, by the pond to keep life jackets, fishing poles etc. As the pond is by our front entrance, I want a unique look and am considering using landscape timbers and make it look like a "log cabin".

I figure 130 timbers, lags, door, window and roofing should cost no more than $700.

Am I crazy for considering this? Any other ideas or suggestions?

A yard barn or garden shed or "kit" from your board store and log siding over the plywood.Quick,low cost,solid and rustic :)

Landscape timbers like you get at Lowes, etc won't hold up very long. They rot very easily.

Have you thought of building a masonary cordwood shed. 10x10 would be a perfect size. Heres a link with abit of info and pictures. Be alot cheaper then your method.
Just an idea.

Hi Walt,

The timbers are treated with "the new stuff". I will lay out a foundation with concrete blocks to keep them at least 4 inches off the ground. They should be OK.
