Shed Designs Using The 12x12 Shed Plan Size

Our 12x12 backyard storage shed plans and horse barns include several styles of sheds including a simple gable shed, the popular lean to shed style, a beautiful gambrel shed with storage loft, a shed with a garage door and even a run in shed for your horses.

12x12 Gable Shed Design: This is the most common backyard shed style because of its simplicity and utility. Our 12x12 gable shed plans come with the option to install the doors on the gable end or the eve sides of the shed.

12x12 Lean To Shed Plans: The lean to shed is one of our easiest sheds to build. The single plane roof makes the roof easy to build. It also keeps the roof height lower than the gable designs. The lean to plan includes plans to install the doors on any of the shed sides. This allows you many different options for placing and orienting the shed. The roof has a 6 inch overhang on all sides of the shed. The roof rafters can be shortened if you want to build the shed up against another structure, some builders even remove the wall up against the other structure and attach the rafters to the existing wall.

12x12 Gambrel Roof Shed Plans: The gambrel shed roof is unique in that it has 4 roof planes and 3 roof ridges. This opens up the inside area to allow for more storage space. The gambrel roof small barn shed plan includeds plans for a loft area up in the roof rafters. This loft adds an additional 84 square feet of storage. There is over 5' of clearance at the peak of the roof. See our shed heights page, see link at the bottom of this page, to see the interior heights. The storage space is accessible from inside the shed where the loft floor is open on one end of the shed.

12x12 Shed With Garage Door: If you are looking to have a large roll up garage door installed on your shed to make it easier to move large items in and out of the shed our 12x12 garage door shed is the solution. It is specially designed to accomodate larger equipment like riding lawn mowers or 4 wheelers. The shed plans come with details showing the framing opening for a 8' wide and 7' tall roll up garage door.

12x12 Run In Shed Plans: The standard size for a horse stall in large horse barns and stables is 12x12. This allows plenty of room for medium sized to large horses to move around. Our 12x12 run in shed is designed to accomodate a larger horse or several smaller horses as well as other livestock. Our run in shed design is designed with a wood skid foundation and steel tow skids so the shed can be moved around the field if necessary.

"Thanks a lot for the great plans.
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!"
