How to build an 8x7 Tudor-Style Shed

Section 2: Material list & plan drawings

Section 2.1. Material List

Some useful notes: • Use treated wood, or wood suitable for outside use. • Where only the total amounts are given, try to purchase in lengths as long as possible to minimize wastage. • When cutting the frame members, cut the longest members first, then cut the shorter pieces from the off-cuts to avoid wastage.
The total amounts do allow for a bit of wastage.

For this project you will need...

Plywood: 9 of 4ft x 8ft (1200mm x 2400mm) sheets 3/4" (19mm) thick.
1 1/2 x 9 1/2" (240mm x 45mm) wood: 32ft (10 meters) for the curved decorative braces. This is optional but does look good.
