It's a little overbuilt to keep calling it a "shed". Building, structure, edifice... seem more appropriate.

It's definitely not a shed...

I'm reminded of the phrase: An elephant is a mouse built to government specifications.

Behold, a shed built to code.

There's also the social factor. It's far easier to get away with, "Honey, I'm gonna put a little shed in the backyard" rather than "Honey, I'm gonna drop several grand on a place to put my boy toys."

Nicely done, Dan, on all levels.

It's too small to be a workshop. Maybe "shed" in the more British use of the word, a place out in the yard to go tinker in.

Waiting on the truss guys, so we can get the trusses up, the blocking done, and hoist those ¾" 4x8 sheets of sheeting to the roof.

And on "trusses up", delivery to the top of the walls is an option, if the boom truck can get to the walls. Sigh.
