  1. Note that the builder lives in San Diego. Those of us in warmer climes would spend a fortune keeping that thing cool in the summer.

    Also, anyone considering this consult your local building codes / tax appraisal rules. Here in Dallas, a shed on a concrete slab counts as “permanent” and its square footage is taxed with the house. Build it on wooden skids, and it’s an untaxed, “temporary” structure.

  2. Why should that have to be the case, Dave?

    Switch to white shingles, and paint with bright colors (maybe match your house with just the trim). Insulate. Put a vent fan in a high spot perhaps.

    And in an established yard, put the shed somewhere where the south and west sides are shaded. Under a tree (on corner footings if possible, to reduce the root damage), or near a fence (as pictured).
