How to Build an 8-Foot-Square Garden or Storage Shed


Rustic Wooden Shed In Snow 

When it comes to building a simple, but cost-effective outdoor shed for creating more space in your backyard, this simple plan will get the job done.

There's no need to worry — these blueprints are designed for all skill levels, even newbies. The plan will show you how to build a pitched roof that sheds water from the front and back of the structure. It also starts you off right with a solid shed foundation that provides years of durability and eliminates sagging floors over the course of time. This is exactly what you need. There's plenty of room to maneuver sizable objects through the double-opening doors, and they provide ample lighting during the day.

The shed will provide 64 square feet of floor space, which will easily store lawnmowers, bicycles, garden tools, and supplies or household seasonal items. You can even install shelving to create an organized storage system that uses less space and maximizes the overall cubic foot space.

This is an affordable storage solution that fits just about any budget, and it can be built in a few days. Additionally, you don't need to worry about buying an arsenal of power tools. This shed can be built with power and hand tools that most people already own.
