A shack is a structure that will rattle and swing violently when shaken or in high wind. Otherwise, a shack is a great place to operate a still or raise goats. Maybe even to use as a hunting blind, just open a window and tag a deer with your trusty old 30.06 (just don't lean too hard against the wall).
A shack is also good for hiding from your wife when she's on a tear. You know that surely she's afraid to go in anything that looks that dangerous.

So I guess a shack, by definition, ain't a great place for a 1000sq ft painting booth, 2500 sq ft metal- and wood-lathe workshop, 5000 sq foot dynamometer room and 10000 sq ft environment-controlled and 20KW generator backed-up server farm, huh?
Well today I just got the 12 pitch roof framed on my new shack in the back. I have been collecting windows and doors and other stuff for years. This is going to get some of those parts. The old chestnut beams and floor are for my new home someday, not the shack. So I will put the shingles on tomorrow and start taking some pictures.
It is a 16 by 10 shed with a loft framed above.
I will put the round top window in the loft. I went to my buddy's shop today and made a window for the other side.
I am also thinking of putting a porch on the front, but I will decide that as it progresses.
Anyone have any cool pictures I could see for some different ideas. I want to incorporate some logs as posts and a set of stairs or make it look rustic with some branch railings.
