Wooden storage sheds can be built to nearly any size, but most commonly fall between the sizes of 8′ x 8′ and 12′ x 20′. Most sheds are built from standard or custom designs.
Secure seven 5/8″ x 60″ boards to the back of the shed. Use a 1″ scrap piece of wood to space them evenly. Secure with finish nails. .
We don’t really deal with any snow in Florida — except for very rare occasions. So snow loads on the roof weren’t a concern for me. But we do receive plenty of rain. And moisture isn’t very friendly to wood structures.
Check out a variety of custom sheds and see the Recreation Unlimited difference first-hand. Please note, only our Noblesville showroom location is regularly staffed. If you have any questions give us a call at (317) 773-3545.
Thank you, Mitch. We are very pleased with our new shed. Shed City, Mitch, provided fast, professional service. Jamin Mckee 10 months ago
An 80 square feet shed can suffice anyone's wood storing needs, since you'll be able to stack up to 4 cord of logs. It's easy to build and should take no more than a few days to finish.
Our free plans serve as an excellent preview to give you a sense of what it will take to complete your first shed.

Premium plans provide extensive detail, including a full materials list and all the tools required to build the shed.

Building the roof of the shed is pretty much a straight-forward job, if you assemble the trusses on the ground. In order to get the job quickly and to drain the water properly, we recommend you to make the pitch of the roof about 30º. Cut the ends of the angled rafters at 30º, while the ends of the bottom rafters should be cut at 60º.

Let us know what you're using your California Custom Shed for, so we can help you create a shed to fit your needs. Our customers have used our buildings for more than just your ordinary backyard garden storage shed. Many have customized our storage sheds for potting sheds, tack rooms, hobby & train rooms. Some have used our buildings for motorcycles, golf carts, or riding lawn mowers. (One customer even parked a 1956 Cadillac in one of our sheds!) Others have used our sheds for a paint studio, guard shacks, offices, a dry shelter for a favorite pet, firewood storage, well pump house, or a ticket booth. Whatever your needs may be, visit us at our display lot located between Salinas and Prunedale on HWY. 101 (El Camino Real North) & Ralph Lane, and we will be happy to help you customize a building to fullfill your needs. We have over 30 buildings on display, which will show you the quality of our storage sheds, and give you many ideas you can apply towards your own building.
Top Tip: Plumb the walls using a hand level, before locking them into place with screws. Make sure the top plates are perfectly horizontal, otherwise the roof won’t be symmetrical.
