If you are building your own shed why not take some time to put a little design into it to create a shed design that is unique and reflects the character of your property. All sheds are essentially a wood box with a roof on it. The difference in a shed design comes from how the elements that make up the shed design are used to create the look you want. The major elements of most shed designs are the roof, trim, windows, siding type and paint. This article has some interesting shed designs that will hopefully inspire you to create a back yard master piece. Click on your favorite shed style below to see our many shed plans.
Cottage Garden Shed Design Trimming your shed with very detailed trimwork creates the look of an english cottage. By adding a steep pitched roof, window, window box and a little extra trim you can have a beautiful garden shed that is at home as a guest bedroom, storage space or kids play house.
Gable Garden Shed Designs The gable shed design is the staple of garden sheds. Its simple no frills functionality gives you plenty of storage space at a minimal cost. The gable shed designs vary so you can choose between a pre-hung door or a home built shed door.
Modern Shed Designs Nothing says "home office", or "studio" quite like our modern shed designs. With the contemporary lean to shed roof, lots of windows and glass door you can have a professional office or studio space with no rent and a very short commute through the back yard.
Greenhouse Shed Designs A wood greenhouse design uses clear polycarbonate roofing or glass panels to let in lots of sunlight. Work benches built inside can hold all your plants and give a nice surface to work on.
Salt Box Shed Designs The saltbox shed design has a long sloping roof on one side and a shorter sloping roof on the other. Its design come from the practice of adding onto the lower level of a house and then extending the roof from the second story down over the new addition. It makes a great shed design.
Horse Run In Shed Designs A run in shed is a shed design that allows animals to "run in" when the weather gets bad. It has no door on the front so the animals can come and go as they wish. The wood skid foundation is designed with tow hooks on it so the shed can be easily moved between pastures as needs change.
Firewood Shed Designs Storing firewood works better when you have a shed plan that is made for the job. Seasoning firewood needs plenty of fresh air. The floor in a firewood shed has gaps in it to allow the air to flow up through the wood. The open front allows easy entry to gather wood and let the air circulate.
Generator Enclosure Shed Designs Generators need a home of their own to keep them out of the elements and ready to use. Having a shed that makes the generator easy to access and provides plenty of ventilation is essential.
Matching The Look Of Your House Using the same architectural elements that you house has creates unifies the property. Matching elements like the shed doors and shed windows to the doors and windows on your house is a perfect place to start if you want your shed to match the look of your house.

"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
"Thanks, Christopher. These plans and material lists are very complete, clear and easy to follow. Very nice work." Van
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.
Thanks very much! Great service and good prices. I'll be buying more plans from you in the future! Cheers, Darren
