Need to build a workshop or garage

Need some advice on building a shed.  I'm reasonably intelligent, not afraid of work and can jury-rig the hell out of a project, but I've never built anything remotely structural (a lean-to in survival training doesn't count).  I've committed to building the stick building the thing from the ground up rather than using a kit mostly as a learning event.

Any advice from the group?

Thanks in advance,

Hi all,

I just did the stupidest thing.  We had a slab leak. The plumbers and I chose to take the hot water line over head in the attic until they could tie into the line under the pier-and-beam portion of my house.  As I was removing junk from the top shelf of a cabinet, I fell and am now at home for 5-7 days because I fractured several ribs.  Smart move huh?

I've been busy for a couple of weeks remodeling my daughter's room. The house is 80 years old and has presented a few challenges. That is the type of work I enjoy most. I like the problem solving aspect of remodeling & renovating. We removed the old chimney from the house about three years ago. This permitted the expansion of the downstairs bathroom. And now, I have grabbed an extra foot to use in making a decent sized closet in my daughter's room. I am re-utilizing a set of bi-fold doors that I took out of my son's house about 7 years ago. This has kept the cost low.

Hardest Project is drywall work. Those guys really earn their funds & as you can see from my pic, bending over to do the lowest two feet would not be possible with me. Maybe by the gal I'm with...
