Large Shed Plans
Building a Large Shed is a great way to add additional storage or work space to your yard or garden. Our extensive large shed plan library is filled with many different designs and sizes to help you build the perfect storage or workspace.

Large Shed Wall Heights
All of our large shed plans come with a taller wall that will allow you to install a regular residential home door. This makes it easier to install the shed door. There are two wall heights that come standard with many of our large shed plans, either 7'-7" or 8'-1".

The 7'-7" wall height allows you to install the shed siding with one piece going from the top pate down to over the bottom plate to floor connection to keep water out of the shed. It also allows you to build the door and window headers without the need for additional blocking above the header. If you want to build the walls using 82-5/8" pre cut framing studs you will end up with a wall height that is about 8'-1". This wall framing gives you a taller shed wall height and requires the use of "Z" metal flashing and blocking at the horizontal joints of the siding.

Available Large Shed Plan Wall Heights
The 7'-7" wall height allows the shed walls to be built with a double top plate and 2x6 header above the door and no additional blocking above the 6' -10 1/2" door rough opening. This allows the shed door to be installed on any wall of the shed with the reassurance of the strength of a double 2x6 header. The wall height being lower than 8' also allows the 8' shed siding to be installed, and overhang the bottom 1 1/2", without any siding joints. This reduces the flashing and siding materials needed to build the shed. It also makes the shed walls much easier to buld.

The 8'-1" shed wall height is used when you want to use a standard pre-cut framing stud that is 92 5/8" long. This is the standard height of a residential home ceiling. The 8'-1" allows 8' sheets of drywall to be installed on the inside and still have some wiggle room at the floor. Large shed plans often use this height because of the simplicity of using the pre cut boards on all the walls. It does require a siding joint, and blocking and flashing on the joints at the 8' level.

Our shed plans often come with details showing the 7'-7" wall height and then have notes instructing to use pre-cut studs for the 8'-1" wall height.

Shed Door Options
We have two door options with our large shed plans. First you can use a factory built pre-hung door on any of our sheds. This allows you to quickly install the door of your choice. These doors are the same doors used in residential homes and fit perfectly into the rough opening specified on all of our large storage shed plans. If you want to make your own doors the large shed plans also come standard with door plans to fit the same rough opening. The only modification to the shed is installing a 2x4 trimmer around the perimeter of the shed door opening. So whichever door you plan to use we have a shed door solution for you.

The large shed plan styles available are the classic gable shed, lean to shed, barn shed, gambrel shed and shed plans with garage doors.

Large Roof Shed Designs
There are many different design styles to choose from including the basic 4 in 12 sloped roof on our common shed plans, a 10 in 12 slope roof on our Cape Cod style and Colonial style sheds, a 12 in 12 slope on our Nantucket styles. The gambrel shed roof provides a multi slope roof that increases the storage space inside the shed. The gable shed is the most common style of shed plan and can be found on our regular shed designs as well as the Cape Cod and Colonial sheds. The Lean to has a single slope roof.

Lean To Shed Plans
Building a large lean to shed is a great way to build a simple large shed with a low roof line. Our larger lean to shed plans come with a low slope 2 in 12 pitch roof design. The roof can have either asphalt shingles or metal roofing installed. These lean to designs are great for building a large shed and keeping the roof line and construction costs down.

Large Barn Shed Plans
The barn shed is popular both on the farm and in the back yard. Its good looks and extra storage capacity make it a classic storage shed solution.

The large gambrel barn shed designs include plans showing you how to build the loft which adds storage space above the main floor area.

Shed Garage Plans
Having a large roll up garage door on one or both ends of your storage shed make it easy to move large things in and out of the shed. Several of our large storage shed plans are designed with a overhead garage door. These plans include details showing you how to frame the opening so it is ready for the door to be installed. Please view our Owners Shed Pictures Gallery to see examples of garage doors installed on sheds.

"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

"Thank you Chris for the super service. The plans look great and I can't wait to get started." Frank

"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

"I just purchased your shed plans for the 6x8 Lean To Shed.  The quality of the plans is top-notch...  Thanks for the quick reply!  The quality to price ratio of your shed plan products is incredible.  Not to mention your awesome support.  I will most certainly be recommending icreatables shed plans to anyone I know who is interested in having a shed! Thanks again,"
Sean

"Thanks, Christopher. These plans and material lists are very complete, clear and easy to follow. Very nice work." Van

"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."
Thanks. Timothy

"Great shed plans, the material list helped a lot as well!"
Sincerely, Jeff

"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.
Be well,"
Jonah

"Excellent!...
Thanks again for your helpful information! Pictures to come!"
