I don't think a jointer would be appropriate for 2x4 and plywood shelving and tables.  If you are going to start making some cabinets out of hardwood lumber and are thinking about not leaving the drywall screws exposed in the trim work then a jointer works great for some wicked strong joints.

There isn't going to be a lot of finish work in the shed or future cabin down there.

I once built a timber frame house in Tennessee. I just trimmed it out in rough sawn western cedar. Then nailed the pieces in place for a rustic look. Worked well.

This shed will very likely be trimmed out in barn wood off the old barn, a chicken coop and whatever else I find on my land (Which is not completely explored yet!) Trim like that begs for nail heads or screw heads showing.

And this is a bug out site meant to sustain life, albeit a frontier style life, not the suburban setting thing.

So to start off I did some CRO (Carnage Recovery Operations). You will remember the bush hog, having mowed hundreds of trees and boulders had bent the drive shaft into a lazy letter "U"

So I fixed it!

Yup, pulled the offending parts apart, straightened (Sort-of) the big end and replaced the junked up skinny piece

With that bend it had a significant vibration in it!

But J-D made the thing with a roll pin...imagine that!

The yoke has the same circle with two ribs-recess and the shaft is a press fit, so roll pin or no, the thing will stay together. But the roll pin just adds the required added aggravation necessary in agricultural operations!

If you look hard you can see the difference between the bad and good shafts!

First up was work, followed by some more work, then trash burning, then evening work, then F&F (Food and Fatigue operations)

Here are the 16 sheets of 2/4 T&G plywood for the second floor which were stacked outside but had to migrate inside

Then the work benches were screwed together, and screwed to the walls which significantly tightened up things inside there.

Looks great.   Are you going to be treating the inside of the shed with anything? At one point I read reclaimed barn wood for the inside decor.   Insulation type?

We burned that big pile of rubbish outside and organized everything and with steady rain beating down, threw in the towel. The next project was going to be the construction of a stone wall which I'd use to level up the ground outside of the double door, but with things slicking up again, we were done.

We did spend the night there, and except for two competing packs of Coyotes howlin' up a storm, it was pretty peaceful out there.

Nothing here in the "Shop Room" but inside the walled off room to come and the upstairs, I'll insulate it and probably use the barn wood to create an insect laden environment!

They age good young men. Say yes sir, no mam. Open doors for ladies. No harsh language, yada-yada. They will rebel, likely, but teach them in the ways of the Lord, and in time, they will return. This farm is theirs someday, so I'm running up their sweat-equity accounts big time right now!

Wise man, your buddy!

I believe hard work and challenges build a good man
Tired men sleep at night when mischief is out...
Hard work builds the body physically
Accomplishing tasks that seem too big at first teaches accomplishment
Work creates opportunities to teach how tools can help
Work keeps one from being idle
You tend to eat at regular times
You feel good after a hard day of work
You can usually look at something you created or changed
It builds in a sense of ownership...The boys will look back decades at something they built as a child
It connects you to the earth and nature
It's fun
It shows you by working you can stay warm when it's cold outside
God created us to work with our hands, so you are practicing his plan for your life

Working from memory here, structure is 16' wide I think. 2x12 x16' if you want no interior support wall in middle (my preference) notch ends of top side of 2x12 & insert this on top of 2x4 or 6 (can't recall what exterior walls were) that is scabbed to wall studs. In essence you have the end of the 2x12 wedged in between the support below & the exterior wall upper sil plate. All the exterior wall studs are now double width adding strength & supporting upper free span loft. If you wanted interior support wall you could drop to 2x10' or even 2x8's most likely if support wall is centered up in building. Either way this should get you 8' standard ceiling height bottom floor & then whatever up top.....

I bet those boys are having a blast building with you...

I am pretty handy... Way more so with building and stuff around the house, than with automotive stuff.

People ask me, esp knowing I have a desk job, "where'd you learn all this stuff?"

12's would definately be strong, but all I need is 2 X 10's.

I used the calculator to determine floor loading limits and I could not approach them on a 10, so it is more than adequate. Using a sofa. I figured 700 pounds assuming three large American people were sitting on my heavy Italian sofa. I still had a couple hundred pounds to spare.

Another consideration is the loss of 2" height in that confined upper space. I need it all!

I'm setting the ceiling height in the lower shop at a low 7'. Not much space considering a smaller tractor with a roll bar or something like that.

This is only the next evolutionary step in the hide site build out. It will serve a purpose, housing people in an emergency temporarily, but will become extra space and storage when the real cabin goes in later on

Overbuilding is always good. When I had my garage inspected the guy was very happy.

Think on your 7ft ceiling a little. I had just under a 8' in my old garage and it always was an issue with almost any wood in 8ft lengths. You don't think about it, you just start to flip and you get stuck. If it is a sheet of wood, you can really get messed up.

I would suggest screws for everything to.

I purchased a 10" sliding miter saw from Lowes to permanently keep down at the Farm, while I keep the 12" DeWalt unit here
The pneumatic nailer came pretty much assembled, although set up for the 21 degree nails. I purchased 34 degree framing nails so I had to switch that all around. It was a simple three step process and the nail gun ran flawlessly driving a few hundred nails today

I had as a goal today, while working by myself, to get the band boards up and the dividing wall framed in and the door hung.

First I nailed up joist hangers to the 2 X 10 SYP Band board on the front and back walls

The band board nails in everywhere and also rests on that newly constructed wall

I normally just frame out the door opening, but this time I just set it while I built the opposite wall. It's all shimmed and installed correctly. I even took the center screws out of the hinge and ran some 3" #10 screws through the existing hole and into the framing itself.

The door was el cheapo. Cost me $55 out the door (Get it? Out the door!?!)

The using all sorts of aids I shoved the other 2 X 10 X 12's up, leveled them and nailed them home. The latter didn't get their joist hangars yet, but they are coming!

I'll nail a patch over the section where two boards meet, but after hanging the joists...

It took quite a bit of time, but I did manage to get all of the band up and ready for hangers
