Frank,you are absolutely right. Pictures can help immensely. The point I was trying to make was that the project should not be rushed into, it should be thought out over an extended period of time. I was saying that I would not build a shed, dependent upon others pictures but, pictures can certainly give you ideas that you can incorporate into your project.

All good points. My shed came with the house, so I pretty much have to work with what I have. It has a nice concrete floor. But, the walls need insulated and paneled and it could definitely use more light and a heat source. I too am considering a sink and stuff. But, I think the wife may want the house remodeled before she'll let me fix my fur shed.

Sheesh, talk about differing priorities laugh .

I'll see if I can't get some pics posted.

Mike has made a few good points. My fur shed only has about a 7 foot ceiling height. Makes it a pain on long critters.
Plenty of light is a must. You will appreciate it after a couple hours if you don't have to squint the entire time. You may not need a ceiling fan but you could just plug in one of those ocillating fans on a pedestal if all your fur is to be on one side of the shed.
One thing I am finding out is that when I hang my beaver boards up to keep them away from the mice, they take up a lot of room. So if you do beaver, make sure you have enough room.
Also, are you going to store your traps and equipment in the same shed? Make room for that stuff too. Plenty of joists are nice to hang furs, stretchers, trap, etc..
