There are many plans you could choose from, therefore you should assess your needs from the very beginning. A basic 8×10′ gable shed could be done in just an weekend, if the right woodworking techniques are used. Nevertheless, don’t forget to go to the local building department before beginning the construction, as there are certain legal requirements you have to comply with, according to the area you live in. Hire a professional handyman to get the job done for you, if you don’t want to undertake the risk of such a complex project.

Next, assemble the side walls of the shed, using the same woodworking techniques described above. Cut the wooden components only after measuring them several times, in order to avoid costly mistakes. As you should notice in the free plans, the top plate should overhang about 3 1/2” at both ends.
Like all projects, the cost of your shed will largely depend on the size and material of choice. You can build most sheds with wood, metal or vinyl, all offering their own set of pros and cons.
The next project is also from MyOutdoorPlans,com. I really think this wood shed project stands out through it simplicity and super large storage capacity. As you can see in the image, this shed is very basic but I like the concept and the main idea is to keep the costs down. This shed would be ideal if you want to store large logs, such as for drying them a few years before splitting them to firewood. MORE >>
You may have been told that important documents like social security cards, passports, birth and marriage certificates, and other difficult-to-replace papers that can be damaged by moisture should be stored in a waterproof and fireproof safe. Keeping that safe in your home office or bedroom is much safer than storing it in your backyard shed. Sure, it may be "out of the way," but it's more vulnerable.
Firewood... I really, really, really like this. Now, if I can figure out where to put the fire tools on it, this would be PERFECT!
Measure your wood shed’s roof depth and add a few inches for overhang (if using asphalt roofing do not extend the sheet more than 2″ over a support or you could have some sagging over time.)

This will leave you with a flush surface for the roofing material to rest on later. Attach the two 63″ 2×4’s to the front and back of your structure.
I start the list in force because this 4×8 shed is sturdy, easy to build and it only requires 2x4s! Yes, you heard me right… this wood shed frame is built entirely from 2x4s, including the sides. In addition, the roof is made from metal sheets so you can keep the costs down. I highly recommend you to take a look over this project. MORE >>
