10x16 Shed Plans - A Large Shed To Solve Your Storage And Work Needs

If you are looking for a large shed that is fairly narrow so that it does not eat up your back yard but still big enough inside to fit even the largest lawn tractor then the 10x16 shed may be your answer. At 160 square feet, the 10x16 these shed offer increased storage or work space. A long and narrow footprint provides an increased amount of wall space to store things on. Your specific storage needs and design tastes will determine what style works best for your yard or garden. We have many styles of sheds to choose from in the 10x16 size, from steep roofed garden sheds, to a gambrel barn, to modern studio sheds, a lean to, and of course the gable roofed shed plans.

Shed Designs Using The 10x16 Shed Plan Size

The 10x16 shed size comes in several different design configurations to help you pick the perfect look and functionality for your back yard storage, studio or gardening needs. Our 10x16 storage shed plans have a great variety of shed styles including the following:

10x16 Gable Shed Design: If you want the simple design of a gable shed our 10x16 gable shed is designed to be built with either a home built door or a pre-hung residential home door. The doors can be installed on either the gable end or the eve end walls to make it easier to position your shed in the perfect spot in your back yard. The gable shed comes with the 7'-7" wall height as the standard but you can also use 92 5/8" pre-cut wall framing studs to make the walls 8'-1".

10x16 Garden Shed Plans: Our Cape Cod designs have the door on one end of the front wall and then two windows to the side of the door. Building the double doors on one of the end walls to give you plenty of access to the inside and provides a generous amount of room to move large tools in and out. Choose from designs that have a covered porch area or if you want to keep things simple you can build it without the porch. Adding window boxes and board and batten siding finishes the look.

10x16 Backyard Shed Plans: Creating that old world charm right out your back door is easy with the Colonial style. By centering the front door and flanking it with a window on each side its symetrical front elevation is reminiscent of colonila architecture. The hardest choice when picking a colonial shed plan is deciding whether or not to build it with a porch.

10x16 Lean To Shed Plans: The 10x16 lean to provides simple functionality. Its single plane sloping roof allows you to built the shed up against a wall or fence without the fear of rain and snow running down between the buildings. Our practical design allows you to install the shed door on any of the walls including the high side, low side or end. The plans come with wall framing plans for all of these door locations. This is the simplest shed style to build.

10x16 Gambrel Roof Shed Plans: If you want the look of a country barn right in your back yard there is no better way to get it than to build your own barn shed. The 10x16 gambrel shed gives you a loft space on the second level that has over 3 feet of head room to store seasonal or other items up out of the way and off the shed floor. It has a set of large double doors on the end and a single door to allow easy access when you don't want to walk through the area by the large doors.

10x16 Modern Shed Plans: If you want a large office or work studio in your back yard the 10x16 studio shed plans may be the perfect way to get it. With two different design options there are several choices to help you build a home office or modern work space close to home.

10x16 Shed Foundations

The 10x16 shed plans come with multiple foundation options. Each plan comes with 5 different foundation designs so you can pick the right foundation for your shed building project. These include:

  • Wood Rail Foundation: This is the most used shed foundation. It consists of two pressure treated wood rails set on a gravel bed. The floor framing sits on top of the wood rails.
  • Concrete Slab: The concrete slab is a more permanent floor and foundation than the wood rail. The costs are slightly higher than the wood rail with a framed floor but if you are looking for a permanent floor that is solid then the concrete slab is a great way to go.
  • Pre-cast Concrete Piers: These are pre-cast and you set them on a level bed of gravel.
  • CMU Block and Poured Concrete Piers: For building sites that have a slope to them the CMU or Concrete Piers are the best solution. You can make the piers taller on one end of the shed than the other to build your floor level. They are set on a concrete pad a the bottom. These shed foundations work well when you want to get the shed foundation below the frost line.

Planning Your Shed Construction

Getting ready to build your shed is as important as the actual construction. Taking time to plan will save you time and money once you get working with the wood. These are some of the things that should be thought through before construction begins:

  • The size of the shed you need to bulid
  • The style of shed and exterior finishes like roofing and siding
  • The cost of your shed buiding project, this takes into account the size and style of the shed
  • The location of your shed on your property
  • Traffic flow to and around the shed
  • If you need a building permit

The wife thanks you all because now she can park her truck in the garage for the winter!"

"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,"

"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. 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,"

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