Shed Designs Using The 12x16 Shed Plan Size:

12x16 Gable Shed Design: The 12x16 gable shed is one of our most popular shed plans. The gable end shed plans represent the most common shed design. Most of our 12x16 large shed designs and come with either a 7'-7" or 8'-1" wall height option. The gable shed plan includes wall framing plans that allow for the installation of a 6'-8" pre-hung door. We also have rafter designs for different roof slopes that we can send you by request after your plan purchase. These rafter designs come in 5/12, 6/12, 8/12, and 12/12 roof pitches.

12x16 Lean To Shed Plans: If you are looking for a large lean to shed plan then the 12x16 will certainly solve your problems. Our design incorporates a 2 in 12 roof pitch to keep the overall height of the shed down. You can install any roofing that is approved for a low slope application. These include asphalt shingles or metal roofing. The plans include options to install the shed doors on any of the 4 shed walls which allows you to customize the lean to shed to fit your needs.

12x16 Gambrel Roof Shed Plans: As another of our most popular designs, the gambrel shed design is the best way to maximize your storage space. The overhead loft almost doubles the amount of floor space by creating a second floor up under the roof of the shed. The loft area can be accessed from the inside of the shed using a ladder. With a roof design that is used in many full sized barns you can bring that farmhouse country look to your back yard. The gambrel shed loft area has about 5'-6" of headroom and the main floor has 7'-0" of head room.

12x16 Horse Barn Plans: 12x16 is a great size for a horse barn or run in shed. It is not too big and not too small. There is plenty of room to store all our farm equipment or yard and garden tools as well as let your lifestock out of the elements. A run in shed allows animals to freely move into the protected area to get a break from harsh weather like wind, rain, snow, and direct sunlight.

12x16 Garage Shed Plans: Adding a garage door is a great way to increase the access in and out of your shed. The wider overhead door makes it easy to park a riding lawn mower or motorcycle inside. If you use the shed as a workshop then having the garage door open will allow you to expand your work area and make it easy to bring large tools or materials in and out of the shed.
