A lean-to is normally attached to a building (bard, shed, garage or the side of the house) in order to provide economical shelter for equipment or vehicles.
I have been looking for something like this to build and put on my back deck for a potting shed. I am always doing stuff in the yard and I always have to either go up front to the garage or way in the back to the shed for my yard tools. Since most of my flower beds and potted plants are on or around my deck this would be perfect to keep all my little yard tools in and handy.
In order to give your shed a nice appearance, as well as to protect the walls from rot, you should install a 10” front and a back overhang. Therefore, secure a truss to the exterior of the shed to the inner rafters, using 3 1/2″ wood screws. Afterwards, fit the end rafters to the roof, using 2×4 blockings and 3” screws. Pre-drill pilot holes in the end rafters, to prevent the wood from splitting.
Like food, instruments, and art, electronics such as microwaves, phones, computers, etc., can be damaged if the heat is too intense. Don't let the DVD players, record players (and record!), televisions, and computers you’ve been meaning to donate to charity get damaged by extreme heat or cold. They won't do anybody any good then. Plus, if pests weasel their way into your shed, they could ruin these items by chewing through cords.
We can only fit so much stuff in our garages, basements and closets. More often than not, parents need that extra space to house toys, winter clothes or any other item we don’t utilize 365 days a year. Bear in mind, the longer you keep household items outside, the more imperative shed insulation will be. Don’t worry, insulating is very easy and quite similar to garage insulation.

Now that we have covered the basics, it’s time to jump into the four reasons why you should add an outdoor storage shed. To no surprise, the biggest advantage of adding a shed is the extra space it provides.
