Large Shed Plans
All of our large shed plans come with a taller wall that fits 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 reason for the two storage shed wall heights
Our large shed plans come with the following options:
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.
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.
Gable Shed Plans: The gable shed is the most common style of shed plan.
Lean To Shed Plans: Large lean to sheds work well if you want a simple to build shed with a low roof line.
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.
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.

Building your large shed should be an enjoyable experience and we have the plans and expertise to help you get the job done.

"Thank you, The plans are Awesome!" Bob
"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
