10x20 Shed Plans - Large Sheds With Plenty Of Storage And Work Space

If you need a big shed that is narrow compared to its length the 10x20 shed size may be your solution. The 10x20 shed size is plenty big enough to store a lawn tractor and still leave lots of room for a workshop or storage space.

Sheds that are long and skinny like the 10x20 large sheds offer more wall space than the same sized shed that has walls that are more equal in size. This allows more wall space storage. For instance the 10x20 shed have 60 lineal feet of walls to store things on whereas a 14x14 shed would only have 56 feet of wall space

Our 10x20 shed plan designs include garden sheds with steep roofs and windows, a standard gable shed design with a lower slope roof, a lean to shed, a gambrel shed and even a run in shed with a tack room.

Bigger sheds give you more storage or work space. A more narrow shed in a longer length will give you an increased amount of wall area for the amount of square footage when compared to a more square floor plan. More wall space gives you more wall storage space.

Shed Designs Using The 10x16 Shed Plan Size

We have several different 10x20 shed styles to help you find the shed you need for your backyard or garden storage and work needs. Our 10x20 shed library includes several styles:

10x20 Gable Shed Design: Our basic 10x20 gable shed is designed to be easy and cost effective to build. It has the option for home built or pre-hung door designs. The home built door plans are included with every shed plan package. There are optional drawings showing the wall framing to put the doors on either the long or short walls of the shed. The shed wall height can be built using the 7'-7" wall height or you can use pre-cut framing studs to make the walls 8'-1".

10x20 Garden Shed Plans: Our Colonial shed design is built with the door and windows on the long wall. The door is centered between the two windows. There is also plans for a larger door on the 10' wall so you can move larger items like hand tools or a riding lawnmower in and out of the shed. The wall and door configuration can be changed to fit your needs. The window planters and shutters add a beautiful design accent to the garden shed.

10x20 Backyard Shed Plans: Spruce up your yard or garden by building a Cape Cod style shed. By putting the single door on one end of the long wall and then adding two windows next to it you will be able to access the far end of the shed without going through the double doors on the end.

10x20 Lean To Shed Plans: The 10x20 lean to shed design allows you to build the 10x20 sized shed with a minimal roof profile and simple roof design. The single slope roof makes it easy to build the shed up against a wall or another structure. Typically the roof is sloped away from the structure it is built against so that the rain and snow does not build up between the two structures. The plans come with wall framing plans that show how to frame the door opening on each of the shed walls including the tall wall, end walls and the short wall.

10x20 Run In Shed With Tack Room: If you are looking for a small run in shed and a tack room the 10x20 run in shed is a great solution. It has a 10x10 stall and a 8' wide by 7'-6" tall opening that allows your horse or other livestock to move freely in and out of the protected shelter without needing help to open a door. The roof design uses a saltbox roof style.

10x20 Shed Foundations

The 10x20 sheds come with several different foundation plans. Each of the plans, except for the run in shed comes with 5 different foundation plans.These include:

  • Wood Rail Foundation: This is the most used shed foundation because of its simplicity. It uses two pressure treated wood rails set directly on a level bed of crushed gravel.
  • Concrete Slab: The concrete slab is a permenant shed floor and foundation design. It costs slightly more than the wood rail and the labor involved to build it is also a bit more.
  • Pre-Cast Concrete Piers: These are concrete blocks that are pre poured with slots for the floor joist framing to sit in.
  • CMU Block and Poured Concrete Piers: These foundation styles are best suited for sloping lots. The shed can be built with one side of the shed higher than the other

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!"
