Check out this 1016 Gambrel Shed Plan that was built in Meridian Idaho. The builder said it took about 4 days to build and paint. They modified the door size to 42 inches. There are two 4′ x 10′ lofts, one on each end of the shed with an opening in the center. They are planning on installing a spiral staircase to get up to the loft area.
The shed roofing is architectural shingles.
This beautiful 10×14 Gable Shed was built in Bloomington, MN. I has had a few modifications. This is what the owner says about the shed.
Just thought I’d drop you a note and let you know that my son-in-law and I finished the shed. Started on 7/9 and finished on 8/8, so about 4 weeks.
We made a few modifications to the plans. The biggest one is that we went with longer rafter tails as we needed to have the drip line be a certain distance away from the shed. This required us to use something different for the soffit, so we used the same rough sawn plywood that we used for the siding. Another big change is that we went with full 8′ studs in the walls to give maximum interior height. As I’m sure you know, this means that the sidewalls had to be pieced together above the 8′ mark. We inserted blocking between the studs as a backing for the z-channel we used. We kept the upper level siding 1/8″ above the z-channel so it didn’t sit in water. We modified the end rafters so that we could put in a square gable vents. And since I tend to overbuild, all of the rafters were secured with hurricane ties (Simpson H10AZ) and I used twice as many A23′s as the [plans called for (including some to hold the end rafters in place). The floor is ¾” tongue and groove treated plywood. The building inspector said we had to tie the shed down at 4 points, so we used 30″ auger stakes at each corner and tied them with steel cable to stainless steel eye bolts running through the 2×8 rim joist. We also added windows to the doors (along with more internal framing for them) and a side window. The doors weighed a TON when we got them done, but they look great. Six 8″ heavy duty strap hinges handle the doors just fine. I used a locking t-handle system on the right door along with a spring bolt on top of the left door and a foot bolt at the bottom of the left door. The five foot wide, ¾” thick ramp is underpinned with 4 supports as my son-in-law intends to one day put a 4-wheeler in the shed.
A great build of a 12×16 shed with a garage door is shown below. This beautiful shed was built in Marshall Minnesota this summer. The owner said:
“I purchased 12 x 16 shed plans from your site last year. Attached are a couple pictures of the completed shed. Thanks,”
The 12×16 garage door shed plans assist you in building a shed with an opening for a 8′ wide by 7′ tall garage door. The plans give details showing the door opening for the shed built on either the long or short walls.

This beautifully built shed was constructed in Virginia! This is what the owner said about his new shed:
“I thought I would send some pictures of the shed I built with your plans. The plans were great and the videos showed me every step of the process. I probably watched every video a dozen or more times. I added 10-3/4 inches to the wall height so that I didn’t have to cut the 8′ siding panels. The added height let me put in a nice loft and keep the shed organized. I definitely would not have been able to do it without the plans and videos. Everyone thinks it looks great and is impressed I built it from scratch. I can’t say enough about how helpful the videos were. Thanks, Ramsey”

Pasadena California has a new baseball scorekeepers booth for their local baseball little league. A local Boy Scout working on his Eagle project used our plans for an 8×16 lean to shed to build the scorekeepers booth shown below. They modified the plans to have two openings with lift up doors so the scorekeepers can have a clear view of the action.
We will donate shed plans to help young men complete their Boy Scout Eagle Projects. Find more information by clicking on this Eagle Scout Project Free Shed Plans link.

Another 4×8 Lean To Shed has been built! It is a great example of a shed built to fit the site. The siding was changed from the plans to match the home. The roof slope was changed to allow the roof to fit under the eve of the house it is built up against. Many builders alter the plans to fit their need and this shed is a beautiful example of fine shed building!
Check out this beautiful generator shed built in St Philips Newfoundland! It has been detailed out with an automatic exhaust fan that is plugged into the electrical outlets on the generator so that it is powered on when the generator is running. The builder used a direct exhaust to carry the exhaust fumes out of the shed.
