This awesome shed was built in Alexandria Virginia. It is a 6×12 lean to style backyard shed. It has been modified slightly from the original design with the addition of two windows, one on each side of the home built doors. All of our larger lean to sheds come with the option to home build doors or purchase pre-hung doors.
This shed was also built using treated lumber for the floor framing. This allows the shed floor framing to sit directly on a gravel bed.
Our How To Build A Shed manual comes with instructions on how to frame and install windows on your shed. The How To Build A Shed eBook comes free with all plan purchases. https://www.icreatables.com/sheds/how-to-build-shed/how-to-build-a-shed-ebook.html
The owner said:
“Hi, I used your lean to shed plans and modified the design to suit my preferences. I added two windows and utilized double doors. This was the first shed I ever built and the designs made it quite easy to follow and build. It took me about 7 working days to complete with a helper and I had most of the tools such as a framing nail gun, miter, impact drill, and circular saw. The shed cost me much more than most prefabricated, but I did enjoy the project and the build quality is much higher as compared to demo sheds at home depot and elsewhere. This shed is really solid and I installed 4 circular vents on the sides to help deal with heat and moisture.

Garage door shed designs are great for parking ATV’s, large tool storage, yard and garden equipment protection. They also work well for workshops where you need to move large equipment and materials in and out of the shed or simply make your work space larger by opening the door.

This 8×12 backyard shed plan was built in Merritt Island Florida! It is a beautiful example of how nice you can build your own shed to fit perfectly with your storage needs and backyard space requirements.
The 8×12 gable shed is designed to be built at an economical price and keep the building process simpler. It does this by using a home built shed door, minimal roof overhangs and shorter wall heights.

Thanks, I finished my shed and love it. I get comments everyday by people saying how nice it looks.
I have never built anything close to this and it went up with very little difficulty and I didn’t have any help at any point of the build.
Thanks again from Merritt Island, Florida.

8×12 Backyard Shed Design and Plans
This 3×12 lean to shed was built in Los Angeles California. It was built under an existing deck so the shed floor was built using pressure treated floor joists so the joists could sit directly on the concrete floor. This kept the overall height of the shed low enough to be built under the deck. This is a great way to provide secure storage under a deck.
The owner said “…glad to share. Thanks for answering all of my questions over the year, and the you tube videos were a great help also.”

These are photos of a 10×14 Run in Shed with a wood rail foundation. It was built for a camp in New York. The roof pitch was changed from 4 in 12 to 6 in 12 and a few additional trusses were added to handle snow loads greater than 40 lbs. This run in shed design uses a 6×6 treated wood foundation rail and tow straps at each corner which allows the run in shed to be moved by towing it and also often alleviates the need for a building permit because the structure is not permanently attached to the ground. Check with your local building department to find our about permitting requirements for your area.

This is our 4×4 Chicken coop with a lean to style roof. It is a simple to build coop that is designed to house about 4 large chickens or 6 bantam chickens. This is a great chicken coop design if you want to raise backyard chickens. It uses a 4’x4′ space in your yard or garden and is inexpensive to build. The plans also include instructions on how to build a chicken run. The chicken run is helpful if you do not have a fenced yard.

The 4′ dimensions keeps the materials used to build the chicken coop to a minimum.
The materials include:

Check out this beautifully built firewood shed. It is 8′ x 16′. It holds over 5 cords of firewood. A cord of firewood is 4’x4’x8′, 128 cu. ft. The front door on this firewood shed is open to allow fresh air to flow up through the pressure treated floor boards and through the firewood. This helps properly season the firewood to ensure that it will be ready for burning. The roof overhang on the front of the shed provides some protection for the front opening.
Using a firewood shed is the perfect way to season your firewood investment and keep it from rotting. Firewood should be seasoned for 6 months to a year, depending on the type of wood, so that it will burn well.
You can check out more photos of this firewood shed at our shed builders photo gallery.
The plans to this an other firewood sheds can be found in the firewood shed plans section of our website.

This modern shed was built in Arkansas. It has had several design modifications including the foundation and siding details. The windows on either side of the doorway were left off the front elevation. These shed modifications show how you can customize the shed to fit your specific needs and design ideas.
The owner / builder said: “Wanted to share a few pics from my shed project. Bought the plans from you a while back. Made a few modifications, such as the cedar exterior trim and I installed a sliding barn door. Plans were great! This was my first building project and I think it turned out pretty well.”

8×12 modern shed design.
This 8×8 shed is the essence of backyard storage sheds. It has a home built door and a 6′-5″ wall height which allows the walls to be sheeted with a single sheet of siding. The shed plans also include optional shed design for the shed door to be installed on the wall with the roof eve. The shed builder opted to build the shed using pressure treated wood floor joists and floor sheeting built over a gravel bed. This allows the shed floor to be closer to ground level.
