    Default New Sugar Shack

    Hey Everyone,

    Ive been reading for a couple years on here, but have yet to post. After working outdoors on a homemade barrel evaporator, i have decided to upgrade to a 2x4 this year and build a shack. It will be nice to get everything indoors under one roof.

    Shack is 14'x16' on a 20' slab, with an overhang for firewood
