Build a shed
Introduction and quantities
The 10 x 10 shed 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 The exterior surface of a wall., and 3/4″ x 6″ (150mm x 19mm) boards for the roof.
The inside floor size is 8ft (2400mm) wide x 10ft (3000mm) long.
The inside width gains another 22 inches” (550mm) at mid-height because of the sloping walls, making the overall wall size around 10ft x 10ft – hence why it is called the 10 x 10 shed.
The inside height at the highest point is around 8ft 8in (2600mm).
The overall height is 124″ (3100mm).
The instructions are in 23 parts (steps). Each part also lists the URL (web address) of a relevant video. The videos are only a quick skim through the building process, and are intended as a visual aid to help with the various project segments, not as a replacement for the plans.
If you want a smaller shed (8×7), then there are free plans at here.
Understanding the measurements
All measurements throughout this project are given in both Standard/Imperial inches, and Millimeter measurements. (Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch.).
The measurements are given first in inches, followed by millimeters (mm) in brackets ( ).
1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ means wood that is 1 1/2 (one and a half) inches thick by 3 1/2 (three and a half) inches wide.
And the equivalent in metric…
90mm x 45mm means wood that is 90 millimeters wide by 45 millimeters thick.
The Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch. measurements are written opposite to the standard measurements. Why?
In North America they call the smaller side first. Example: 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
In Australasia they call the bigger side first. Example: 90mm x 45mm
The inch sizes are not an exact match to the equivalent millimeter sizes, because for rounding-off purposes we translate 1″ as being 25mm which is not exactly right but near enough..
A shed built using the metric measurements will be approximately 1.6% smaller (hardly worth worrying about) than a shed built using the Standard. Feet and inch measurements. (ft and in) measurements.
In other words, use one or the other but do not mix the two (for those of you who can work with both standard and metric measurements) and you should have no problems as far as the Any of the three linear measurements, length, breadth and depth. go.
The imperial measurements are more suited to North America. The metric measurements are more suited to Australasia and other countries.
