4×6 Firewood Shed Built in North Carolina

This beautifully built and finished firewood shed was built in North Carolina! It is finished with wood stain and brown corrugated fiber/asphalt roofing! The 4×6 firewood shed stores just over 3/4 a cord of wood! The floor is designed so that air can move from the cool shaded space below the floor and up through the wood to the warmer area on top of the wood and out the front opening. This promotes well seasoned wood and reduces the chance of mold and rot. The front opening is designed to make it easy to access the wood.

The owner/builder said: “Here are pictures from my 4×6 shed build from your plans. I enjoyed the project, learned plenty, and it gave me the confidence to take on a larger storage shed in the near future. Thank you!”

Portable Propane Generator Enclosure Plans

This generator enclosure was built to house a propane generator. It has two sets of doors to allow plenty of access to the generator. The single end door is a great way to pull the generator in and out of the shed and the double front doors are used to change out the propane tanks and access the generator controls.

The owner/builders said:

“Hi, Please find enclosed pictures of our generator shed that we built with your plans.  We are very proud!  We put stones around the outside to keep the fresh dirt down.  The metal roof is hinged and opens up too.  …  Your videos and personal support have made these projects possible.

Thanks, Doreen”

4×8 Lean To Shed Boat Storage Plan

This lean to shed design was built to house beach and boating equipment. It is built close to the water and the lift that helps put the boat into the water. It was built on a concrete slab that has an apron extending out in front of the shed to allow space for working or simply hanging out. The large double doors allow an almost 6 foot wide space to move items in and out of the shed.

Our backyard storage sheds are used to store just about anything that will fit through the doors so check out all of our lean to shed designs here:

Building a Lean To Shed In Connecticut!

This shed was built in a single day by a group doing a service project. It is our 4×8 lean to shed plan which is one of our most popular shed plan styled and sizes. You can view plans for the 4×8 shed plans here. The lean to storage shed was built using traditional framing methods including 2×4 stud walls laid out at 16 inches on center, grooved plywood siding, pre-hung doors, asphalt shingle roof and a framed floor. The pressure treated shed foundation rails were laid on crushed gravel bed to provide good drainage.

All of our lean to and modern shed plans are designed so the the front and side walls of the shed are the same height and the tall wall is taller. Building a shed this way removes the need to frame the side walls with a sloping top plate which makes it much easier to frame the side walls.

Check out more photos of this an other sheds in our Owners Shed Photo Gallery.

8×12 Gambrel Shed Built in Ontario Canada

This gambrel shed has been built in Ontario Canada.

The owner/builder said: “I added exactly one foot of height, (still about 5 inches below my local bylaw for a permit), Added a loft that is 4′ deep and with 6 feet of clearance underneath (I am 5′ 10″ so its perfect for me, the short mans special).

Splitting the door works better for me. I don’t normally need such a  large door, but have the option to open the small one (the large door is 3′ wide, with the small on just under 10.5″ wide with slide bolts top and bottom to allow locking),
I was able to get two windows for less the $40 so I put them in adding a lot of light. (the 4×4 cross supports were something I had for free or I would have used 2x4s.
Added roof ties. I only put a vent on the one end of the shed to ensure no water found its way into the loft area, so I installed a roof vent.
The small wood shed was build with the leftover material.
The one side is on a 6×6 beam, the other is 3 4x4s that are 5 feet deep, with two 2×6 laminated together due to the ground dropping off about 3.5′ from side to side. ”

These modifications make the shed a very customized design. Built for the owners specific needs. Our original 8×12 plans can be found on our shed plans website.

“I would like to say that the shed was much easier  to build with your plans, the measurements for the gable were exact, and the technics helped a lot! the material list made it easy at the lumber yard! ” Check out more photos at http://www.icreatables.com/sheds/shed-owners-picture-gallery.html
