Creating a Backyard Shed, Part 1, Materials List – Project

Tired of replacing your lawnmower every couple of years? Are your backyard tools so rusty they look like they’ve been excavated from an ancient Mayan civilization dig? Do you have bags of fertilizer, garden insect spray and other outdoor chemicals for your garden piled-up in a corner of your kitchen?
