This shed has an appealing, fairy-tale Tudor look, with its sloping side walls and curved braces.
Whereas most wooden sheds consist of a frame, with a The outer covering of a building meant to shed water and protect from the effects of weather. or The exterior surface of a wall. fixed on the outside, this shed has the The exterior surface of a building. fixed to the frame, on the inside. Sort of back-to-front from the ‘run of the mill’ shed.
The shed is roomier than the floor size would lead to believe, as the sloping side-walls give extra space, allowing shelves or work benches to be installed at mid-height, without encroaching too much over the floor area.
It is constructed mainly from 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (90mm x 45mm) Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees for the framing, 3/4″ (19mm) thick A piece of wood made of three or more layers of wood veneer laminated together with glue. for the floor and wall cladding, and 3/4″ x 6″ (150mm x 19mm) boards for the roof.
The size of it:
The inside floor size is 6ft (1800mm) wide x 6 1/2ft (1950mm) long.
The inside width gains another 22 inches” (550mm) at mid-height because of the sloping walls. Hence the 8×7 shed. The 8×7 refers to the wall size at mid-height.
The inside height at the highest point is around 8ft (2400mm).
The overall size of the shed (roof area) is 10ft (3000mm) x 8ft (2400m).
The overall height from the ground to the apex is 9ft (2700m).
