How to build an 8ft x 10ft Storage Shed
I designed and drew up the plans for this basic storage shed in 2004. I first posted them online as a free plan on 26/June/04 in the BuildEazy (this) website. Along the way it has been reformatted once or twice to suit changing websites demands.
This detailed shed plan-set is in both Standard and metric dimensions. There is more detail about the measurements on the next page.
The shed is built on skids, meaning that there are no footings or foundations and that the finished shed is able to be moved.
The wall cladding (siding) is board and batten and the roof cover is corrugated roofing iron over plywood sheathing.
Door plans, materials list, instructions, nailing information and a glossary of terms is also included.
THESE PLANS ARE TO BE USED AS A HELPFUL GUIDE ONLY AND NO WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE IS OFFERED OR ENTERED INTO.
A building consent/permit may be required for the construction of this shed. Contact your local relevant Authority if in doubt.
These plans by themselves, can not be used as full documentation when applying for a building consent/permit, although in some instances they may be of assistance.
