These are the basic materials used to build the 8x10 saltbox shed. Materials such as vinyl siding or a pre-hung door can be substituted to change the look or functionality of the shed.
An 8x10 saltbox shed is a nice sized to help organize your yard tools, motorcycle, bikes or riding lawn mower. These storage shed plans will instruct you how to build a 8x10 saltbox storage shed. Our storage shed plans use a 8 1/2 x 11" page format so you can easily print them out on your home printer. All pages of the plans have dimensions on every part.
These are some shed plan page samples (they are not from the 8x10 saltbox shed plans)
The exterior details are what gives the shed its look. Wood shed plans are typically trimmed with wood, masonite, cement or vinyl trim boards. The details sheet shows where to place the trim boards on the corners, door, roof eves and soffit. The standard trim is 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 1/2" x 5 1/2" masonite or cement or wood trim boards.
The main foundation plan for our 8x10 saltbox storage shed is built using 6x6 pressure treated skids. These boards keep the floor off the ground and make the shed easier to move if necessary. There are also plans included that show how to build a Pre-Cast Pier Foundation, Slab Foundation and Building Section, Concrete Pier Foundation Plan and Section and Isometric, Concrete Pier Floor Framing Plan
The shed walls are framed using 2x4 lumber at 16" on center for the studs and top and bottom plates. They are sheeted with T-111 exterior siding. You can add other sidings such as stucco or stone to match your home if you like.
The roof is framed using simple 2x4's at 24" o.c. to stick frame the rafters. 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. The roof is sheeted using 1/2" O.S.B.
Since the door is the only moving part on the shed it needs to be built strong. 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.
