Getting more and more comfortable

I’m a retired EE, and have a lot of time on my hands now for home projects. I’ve been using SketchUp, but always wanted to be able to design on my iPad. No clue why I didn’t discover OnShape sooner, but I’m about a month in now, and I’m becoming more and more comfortable with it. I must admit, it’s a much more professional package than I expected.

I have a number of designs in the works, but my latest design started out as a wood shed for the backyard. I started it after discovering configuration variables, so naturally, I designed the shed around a number of parameters that would allow for fully customizing it. It took a while, and exposed a few weak spots in my OnShape design capabilities, but that’s why I push the envelope when I start a new project. No better motivation than having a project you really need,

Here’s a link to the document. I’d appreciate any comments on how the design could have been improved. Not looking for comments on the shed design itself, rather on how I used OnShape.
