I had worries about my half a$$ "umbrella" shed falling down after the weatherman was calling for snow. Had to do a little bracing LOL.The 2x4s were loose when I put them up...not loose now lol. I gotta build me a real shed :)

Yeah I agree Rick.I'm kinda partial to ford tractors too :) . The way the metal ribs are run horizontal ,the bottom of the tin sweats and drips all over them :angry: not good. The shed was given to me by a customer,I built a nice free standing carport for just to get it out of her way.Thought about using the roof (ribs run vertical) on a site built shed, but might just move the shed down the hill and use it for a wood shed.

Always good to keep the toys out of the weather.
But my guess ? The reason the 2x4's are tight, is not from the snow load. It's from frozen ground heaving and pushing up ?

I don't know,Chuck. I don't think the ground pushes up under the roof where it's dry. And that thing is pretty flimsy.I've heard of sheds like it collapsing with snow load on them.When most of the snow melted off the roof,the 2x4s got loose again LOL. Thought I'd get some treated 6x6s,some trusses and build something I wouldn't be too worried about. And make it bigger too.
