Handy Plan®: Gabled Garden Shed
This storage shed will provide you with two things at once: attractive architectural lines to enhance your yard,and a practical 80-s®quare-foot work and storage space for gardening and landscaping projects. Orient the structure with the main window to the south, and the workbench behind the window becomes the ideal place to get a jump on the gardening season by starting your plants in peat pots.
The shed itself is only 8 x 10 feet. Add the wrap-around deck and it still only needs a space 16 x 14 feet; small enough to fit most yards.
Customize the inside to suit your own requirements for shelves, workbenches,and storage for tools or toys. With a little imagination, you can also convert the structure for other uses; you could make it a playhouse, for example, or a poolside cabana.
It’s designed to be built in sections, so it can be a one-person project with about a half-hour of help from some friends. We’ve made every effort to make these plans and instructions easily understandable by an average hobbyist in a home workshop.
