A Tarp Shed

There are some things I don’t want to keep in the the cabin.  But many of these things are better not being left outside.  My solution?  A tarp shed.  I am building an about 10ft by 8ft shed on the deck.  I am mostly building it from poles harvested on my land.  When the frame is finished I will cover it with a 16 by 20 tarp I already have.  The shed will hold my storage bin, things like lawn chairs and shelves for other item.  There should still be room to have a small workshop for my various projects.

Plus, from a distance they look like windows.
