The All Metal Portable Generator Enclosure Features:

  • Cost Effective Simple Design - The all-metal generator enclosure is designed to sit on-top and cover the generator. The shed is lifted off to fuel the generator and to provide other maintenance. The generator can be moved out of storage to a well-vented area when it is being used.
  • Designed To Fit Your Generator - Email us today to receive a quote and receive answers to any questions you may have.
  • Dimensions: The outer dimensions of the shed are six inches wide, six inches long and eight inches tall.  
  • Portable Design - This generator enclosure is built using lightweight metal framing studs and corrugated roofing. Its light weight allows you to move it to the generator location.
  • Venting - The metal generator enclosure is vented in three ways: 1) comes with a two-inch opening around the box where it rests on the ground, 2) a 1 1/2" opening just below the roof panel on the two shorter ends of the shed to allow air to flow from the ground up past the generator and out below the roof, and 3) metal screen that is positioned in front of the generator exhaust port.
  • Weather Protection - This small generator shed is designed to allow you to run your shed outdoors with limited protection. By necessity, the open floor and generous venting provides openings where some water may enter the enclosure. This Shed is not 100% waterproof.

  • Floor = No floor is designed with this shed. It is designed without a floor so that it may be set over the top of the generator.

"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!"

"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,"
