Home Built Door - These storage shed plans will instruct you how to build a 4x8 lean to storage shed with a single 2'-9"door on one of the ends. The end the door is on is changeable when building the lean to shed.

5 Foundations: There are 5 different foundations are included in the plans; Wood skid, Concrete slab, Concrete Block Pier, Poured Concrete Pier and Precast pier.
Floor: 2x6 floor joists with 3/4" floor sheathing.
Walls Framing: 2x4 framing at 16" on center with a double top plate, just like a home is framed.
Wall Height: The shed wall height is 6'-4" for the short wall and 7'-6 3/4" for the taller wall
Door: 2'-9" x 5'-9" door is built using sandwich construction for strength and durability. Our door plan shows you how to build a shed door that will outlive the shed. The shed door is built using a 2x4 inner frame faced on the inside with 1/2" O.S.B. and on the outside there is a layer of T-111 to match the rest of the shed. We use 3 hinges on the doors and the screws go into the inner 2x4 frame of the door to give extra strength.
Siding: T-111 exterior siding. Other sidings such as vinyl may be used.
Roof = The roof is framed using 2x4's to build the trusses. It is sheeted with 1/2" O.S.B. The plans give you the dimensions and cut angles so you can build the roof rafters on the ground and then put them up on the top plates.
Roof Pitch: 4/12, this means that for every 4 inches of rise there is 12 inches of run horizontally.
Roof Overhang: 4" on the front and back. 1" on the sides.
Roofing = 25 year asphalt shingles.
Trim = 1x3 and 1x6 wood, masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners, roof eves, facia, and door.
Floor Load: 50 pounds per square foot for framed floors. You don't want your shed floor to feel spongy.
Roof Snow Load: 40 pounds per square foot. This is more than adequate for most areas. If you live in an area with a high snow load you should check with your local building department for your local snow load. Contact us and we can specify stronger roof framing.
