Something I noticed in your shed photo was your A/C unit. It looks very close to the wall of your home. That in conjunction with the proximity of your trash can will greatly reduce the efficacy of the unit. In addition it is much harder on the A/C itself.
.... leave room for adequate air circulation. Without good air circulation, the temperature near the condensing unit will rise. The higher temperature will reduce the capacity of the air conditioner, causing it to work harder and provide less cooling....

That's a good point -- and something I considered. I talked to an AC tech who told me how much space he thought I ought to have around it (although whether he really knew what he was talking about is anyone's guess). When the AC is running, I try to move the green collection bin out of that spot. My wife puts her bicycle there. The picture kind of distorts it, but the roof doesn't extend over the AC unit.
I agree with your point, though. It's not ideal.

1" square tubing dies for your HF bender...
I'm interested in getting that HF tubing roller and have been doing a ton of research. SWAG Offroad makes some great die sets and a bunch of other cool things to "hot-rod" various HF tools.
Let me know how they work out for you if you end up getting them.
Oh, and also check out his "wing" extensions for the tubing roller.
