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.

We received pictures of a beautiful shed with a porch built in Aurora, Colorado! This shed was built with a concrete floor under the enclosed shed and a framed deck. The addition of the porch adds a lot of character to the shed and makes it feel like home.

The first video in our How To Build A Shed Video series teaches you how to build a shed foundation. The wood rail foundation is the most common shed foundation type. It consists of pressure treated wood rails that sit on the ground, preferably a crushed gravel base to allow drainage away from the shed. In this video we show you how to level the rails with each other and also how to square them so the shed floor framing sitting on the rails is square.
