If you’re looking to build your own shed, you’re probably considering something in the range of a 10×12 shed. This size is perfect for most people, with a generous 120 square feet of storage space. Once you’ve decided on a size, though, your next move is to determine the type of roof you’d like. One of the most common roofs for a 10×12 shed is the Gambrel roof design. The reasons why you may want this roof style is for the extra room it provides inside your shed, or because it matches well with your landscaping or home. Before you get started though, make sure you purchase yourself a good set of gambrel roof shed plans. Don’t try to be cheap and use a $5 set of plans you found online. You’ll waste a lot more money in the end by going with a cheap set of gambrel shed plans.

Gambrel Shed PlansThe gambrel roof shed is often called a barn-style shed. Although it may appear to be a challenge to construct, it’s actually not that difficult. The key to having a good roof is making sure the rafters are built exactly the same, this can be accomplished by building your first set of rafters correctly and then using that set as a template for the rest of the shed, this will ensure you have a level roof. The alternative to rafters is to consider using roof trusses this will allow for the maximum amount of storage space and will increase the strength of your structure. The downside to trusses is they will require more lumber therefore increasing your cost and can be heavy to handle by yourself.

One of the things I think is coolest about a Gambrel shed is that fact that you can install large sliding doors, which can be very useful if you’re storing equipment such as a riding lawn mower. However, if you want to install sliding doors, make sure your gambrel roof shed plans include such a design. Have you ever heard the saying: “You get what you pay for”? Well, it couldn’t be truer with storage shed plans. If you try to use a set of free or $5 cheap storage shed plans, you’re going to be frustrated and you’re going to end up wasting a lot of money for a crappy shed. If you think you can just search the net and find a good set of plans or blueprints, think again. Your first investment in your gambrel shed should be a good set of plans.

Now, if you’re want to make sure your gambrel roof shed looks amazing, not only may you want to consider a sliding door (which is very functional), but you may want to look at installing some windows or even a skylight. Both of these will give it a very appealing, classy look that will impress your neighbors.

Wishing you great success in your shed building.

Your friend,




One of the most common storage shed sizes is 10×12. Why? Because it’s the perfect balance between having enough room for the things you want to store, and how much of your yard you want to sacrifice. A 10×12 storage is going to perfect for almost nearly anyone. When people first look at building their own 10×12 storage they often wonder about the costs involved. I’ll admit that storage sheds in general are not cheap. However, with a good set of 10×12 storage shed plans, you can build a great shed and save yourself a lot of money.

10x12 Storage Shed PlansIf you opt to buy a pre-built storage shed, it’s going to be very expensive. However, if you build your 10×12 storage shed yourself, not only will you save a lot of money, but you will have a lot more freedom in terms of the design. You will have full creative powers over how your shed looks and the materials you use. If you want to build your own shed, though, the one thing you don’t want to skimp on is a good set of 10 x 12 storage shed plans. If you download some crap plans for free online, guess what?

These guys know what they’re doing and they know how to teach you exactly how to build the 10 x 12 shed that you want.

When it comes to 10×12 storage shed, most people choose either a Gambrel Roof Shed or a Gable Roof Shed. These are by far the most common 10×12 storage sheds that people select to build. While the design selection is completely up to you, the Gamble Roof and Gambrel Roof Sheds offer more space than other designs.

Once you have purchased your 10×12 storage shed plans you’ll want to look through them and make a list of all the materials and tools required. Although these vary plan by plan, in general you’re going to need plywood sheets for the floor and walls. You’ll need nails, hinges, screw driver and hammer for putting together your shed.

As you’re building your 10×12 storage shed, you may find that you need some help with the woodworking if you’ve never built something similar yourself. If this is the case, don’t worry.

Your friend,




Outdoor Storage ShedIf you’re someone who likes to garden or build DIY projects, then you probably have all of the tools needed to build your very own outdoor storage shed. Outdoor storage sheds are ideal because they allow you to organize and protect all of your tools, without taking up garage space. It’s like a second garage for all your tools. You may be under the assumption that outdoor storage sheds are difficult to build, but with a good set of outdoor storage shed plans, they are quite easy.

• Step 1 is to get yourself a good set of outdoor shed plans. There are lots of downloadable storage shed plans online. Look at the various plans and choose one that has the look you want and that is in scale to the size of your house. You don’t want it to be as big as your house, but you also don’t want it to be the size of a doghouse. You also want to ensure that you are in compliance with regional construction laws and this will most likely be municipal by-laws. In most areas, a structure less than 100 square feet does not require a building permit but you should check with your local building authority to be on the safe side.

• After choosing a plan, you need to figure out where you’re going to put the shed. Mark the perimeter as you need to be very precise right from the foundation stage. Use tracing triangles or right angles to mark out stakes and then attach strings to line out the perimeter. Make sure the perimeter is a perfect square or rectangle by measuring the lines before starting to work on the foundation.

• The next step is to create a foundation and this can be made with concrete piers or concrete slabs. When determining what to make your foundation of you’ll need to consider the ground it’s being built on.

• The floor system is next. This is done by setting floor joists in such a way that the dimensions on the outside are in line with those of the shed. Use pencil marks about every 12 inches on two parallel joists and draw right triangles using the triangle method. After this, the brackets need to be nailed down and they should be centered also every 12 inches and begin to slide in stringers and then nail then down as well. The last step to complete the floor is to nail plywood over the entire surface. Tighten up by placing plywood perpendicular to the joists or applying strong adhesive.

• The next step is the wall. Lay down pre-cut rows of timber all round on plywood laying one next to the other and nailing them down fast. Do this for the four walls and then get help raising them up. Lay down temporary bracing to hold the walls before you nail them down to each other. Finish with a plank of wood all around on top of the walls. You should now have a shed with four walls, a floor and no roof which is the last step.

To finish the roof, lay down four wooden beams perpendicular to the roof to form a triangle at the center of the shed. Then, nail down wooden planks one by one to complete the roof, nailing them down as well. The second last step is to get the door attached using hinges and lastly the window. You can choose to use shutters instead of windows with glass panes.

Most people will then finish up with a nice coat of pain, often choosing to match the shed to their home. This decision is completely up to you. Some will choose to keep the natural wood appearance.

If you need a good set of outdoor storage shed plans, I recommend these plans.  It is what I have used for building over 20 sets of plans.

Wishing you great success in your shed building!
