12x16 Gable Shed Design: The 12x16 gable shed is one of our most popular shed plans. The gable end shed plans represent the most common shed design. Most of our 12x16 large shed designs and come with either a 7'-7" or 8'-1" wall height option. The gable shed plan includes wall framing plans that allow for the installation of a 6'-8" pre-hung door. We also have rafter designs for different roof slopes that we can send you by request after your plan purchase. These rafter designs come in 5/12, 6/12, 8/12, and 12/12 roof pitches.
12x16 Lean To Shed Plans: If you are looking for a large lean to shed plan then the 12x16 will certainly solve your problems. Our design incorporates a 2 in 12 roof pitch to keep the overall height of the shed down. You can install any roofing that is approved for a low slope application. These include asphalt shingles or metal roofing. The plans include options to install the shed doors on any of the 4 shed walls which allows you to customize the lean to shed to fit your needs.
12x16 Gambrel Roof Shed Plans: As another of our most popular designs, the gambrel shed design is the best way to maximize your storage space. The overhead loft almost doubles the amount of floor space by creating a second floor up under the roof of the shed. The loft area can be accessed from the inside of the shed using a ladder. With a roof design that is used in many full sized barns you can bring that farmhouse country look to your back yard. The gambrel shed loft area has about 5'-6" of headroom and the main floor has 7'-0" of head room.
12x16 Horse Barn Plans: 12x16 is a great size for a horse barn or run in shed. It is not too big and not too small. There is plenty of room to store all our farm equipment or yard and garden tools as well as let your lifestock out of the elements. A run in shed allows animals to freely move into the protected area to get a break from harsh weather like wind, rain, snow, and direct sunlight.
12x16 Cape Cod Shed Plans: If you are looking for a decidely New England shed design then our "Cape Cod" shed style is perfect for you. The roof has a 10/12 pitch roof, narrow rake gables and short eve overhang. The front elevation has a narrow and tall windows and a door. There is also a large double swing door on the gable end of the shed to let you bring larger items into the shed.
12x16 Garage Shed Plans: Adding a garage door is a great way to increase the access in and out of your shed. The wider overhead door makes it easy to park a riding lawn mower or motorcycle inside. If you use the shed as a workshop then having the garage door open will allow you to expand your work area and make it easy to bring large tools or materials in and out of the shed.
12x16 Modern Shed Plans: Building a home office never looked so good. Using our 12x16 modern shed plans you will be able to have a contemporary home office at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a pre built shed. The low slope roof and generous use of windows creates a shed that is ready for work. The modern sheds can be finished with any level of interior finish from totally unfinished to high class office space. With several different door placement options and design styles you will be able to find the perfect home studio shed plan.

"I think these shed plans are great. I am very handy, but it is nice to have plans with measurements that are easy to follow. Most plans are to detailed, and confusing. I will prefab shed in garage, then in early spring put together. Thank you very much." Paul
"Hi. So I bought your plans and built the shed. Worked great, I would say 10/10...
Very easy to read the plans, very easy to make by following the steps in the "how to build a shed book" that comes with the plans. Overall, a very satisfied customer." Martin

"AWESOME CUSTOMER SUPPORT…" John
"I promised to send a photo of my completed shed. My wife and I are very happy with the way it turned out. The plans were exactly what I needed to get going... It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot and it was fun. Thanks for your help." Mike
"Your plans were very helpful. It was well worth the small price I paid for the extra help. Thanks." Robert
"Hi Guys, I built this shed as a well house and it is terrific, even though I have never been anything close to a carpenter. I have arthritis so I used screws everywhere but the roof, and I believe it will be stronger for it.
"Our shed looks great, thanks to your plans." Donald
"I had already paid out twelve dollars and change to another do it yourself website and was totally unhappy with the plans I got. Luckly I found your website and paid less for somthing ten times better. Thanks." Allen
"I have received (the plans), and they look wonderful! Can't wait to get started (next week for sure!) Thank you so much!" Phil
"BTW - so far after reviewing I'm thoroughly impressed with what you've done here in the attachments. For someone like me who isn't "handy" you've made it very easy for me to tackle." Fran
"Yes I did (receive the plans) ...freakin awesome! Thanks again!!" Jessi
"I finally finished my 8x12 shed! The plans worked out great. I deviated from the plans slightly on roof edge and the door. I plan to put gutters and down spouts on it and we wanted a little more of a country barn door look. I really appreciated the templates for cutting the notches for the rafters. Detailing which nails I needed for each phase of the build was also very helpful. Thanks again," Dale
"I really like the instructions, they are much more than I expected." Randy
"Thank you for your input. I just purchased the 4x4GN-generator-shed-plans. Wow. The plans look fantastic. And the parts list is very nice! I plan to modify it with 2 or 3 side doors for extra ventilation as needed. Thanks again for your time." Vern
"I like the idea of constructing the unit from scratch, what I call stick building it piece by piece - we've seen the lightweight think plastic walled units from (a home store), ok I guess but the heavier wooden unit with permanent roofing will last longer and give better service. It was a good plan and easy to build from, I don't think the contractor had any difficulties with it." Gary
"I purchased your plans for a 12 x 12 shed w/garage door. Your plans were great and I'm very pleased with the results.
I also used your free "how to build a ramp" plans which were very helpful." Regards, Donald
"Hello! Our Shed project went swimmingly well this weekend! The only thing you’ll notice we did different was to order the doors from a lumberyard rather than building them…. Which worked out pretty well. Thanks for your help!" Maureen
"Got them. I'm very pleased with plans."
"Great shed plans, the material list helped a lot as well!"
"Thanks very much! Great service and good prices. I'll be buying more plans from you in the future!" Cheers, Darren
"Attached are photos of woodshed I built from your plans....the plans made it very easy....Thanks" Mike
"It to me a year of intermittent sweat swearing and blood, but I finished it, and I'm proud of it. Thanks for the awesome shed plans!" Jessica
"I recently helped a family member build an 8x12 shed using plans he bought from your site and found the plans and materials list to be very helpful. I'm about to start a project building my own storage building, a 12x20, and thought I'd buy plans from you as well since his went so smoothly." David
"I was sceptical about buying shed plans online but your extremely customer service and willingness to provide extra help to a "newbie" have won me over. Thank you.
Thanks again for your helpful information! Pictures to come!"
