The generator enclosure shed plans are designed to cover your generator to protect it from the elements and keep the noise down when it is running. These gererator shed plans will teach you how to build a generator shed enclosure. A generator enclosure is a great way to keep your generator investment out of the elements to insure that it is ready for operation when you need it. Our generator shed plans are drawn by professionals designers who have extensive experience framing and building. This means that our portable generator shed plans are easy to build from.
The Portable Generator Enclosure Plans will show you how to build a simple, strong and weatherproof generator shed that you can use to safely store and operate your portable generator. A generator enclosure allows you to lock your generator in its own shed to keep it out of the garage in a safe and ready to use place for backup power when it is wired with a transfer switch.
The generator shed plans include dimensions to cut out and assemble all the parts to build the floor, walls, roof and doors. The exhaust fumes exit the generator enclosure through exhaust piping that is connected directly to your generators exhaust. Fresh air comes into the generator shed through louvers on the front and exit through the back using a exhaust fan that is plugged into the 120 volt generator so that it comes on when the generator is running. If the floor of the generator shed is framed then it should be built with gaps between the floor boards to allow air flow around the generator.
Building a portable generator enclosure is very simple project. The material costs are usually under $200 depending on the size of the shed and the cost of generator enclosure accessories you add such as a transfer switch.
Note: when using a generator you should always refer to the manufactures operating instructions for its safe use.

You guys are awesome! Thank you very much!" Denise
"Thank you, The plans are Awesome!" Bob"Thanks for the designs! They were especially useful since I didn't have any construction experience prior to this. Obviously, I made some modifications with the finishing, but I am quite happy with the size and structure of the shed." Matt
"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
"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
