Make sure the frame of the outdoor shed is rigid, as in the free plans. Drive in 4” screws trough the bottom plates in the floor of the shed. In addition, don’t forget to reinforce the corner joints with 3 1/2”, every 8”.
Attaching the exterior siding should be a straight forward job, as you need to use 4×8′ grooved plywood (5/8” thick) and several nails. Clamp the sheets to the wall studs and secure them with 1 1/4” nails. .

Building an outdoor shed is usually seen as a complex project, but in fact the construction process is a lot easier than it might seem at first glance. Therefore, you should choose the plans that fit your needs, taste and budget, as there are many options available. An 8×10′ shed with a gable roof is a great project, as it offers a significant storage space and it requires basic carpentry skills.

A 5x5 storage unit can handle the contents of a small closet. They're great for a few boxes and a couple pieces of furniture, like a desk and a chair. These are popular among college students.
This firewood shed features a basic design. The shed has a lean to roof, so that it protects the firewood from water. Also, the shed has the side and back walls protected by slats. The plans come with a complete cut list and with easy to follow diagrams. MORE >>

Been waiting 10 weeks for a cabin & still waiting! We have been given lots of misinformation & they seem to be full of excuses! But yet they have had the payment in full from the tine of the order. Never have had to give a bad review before, maybe someday when we actually get the cabin we hope it will be nice! When u say u are going to return a customers call shortly & never do that's not good customer service either!

So it must come as no surprise at all, that while many gardeners are rummaging through their overcrowded sheds, their thoughts often turn towards garden storage upgrades and even a possible investment in a second shed – yep, it’s true.
We purchased a 10x12 shed over this past summer. It was clearly the best built shed on the market. We are extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Recreation Unlimited.
I'm obsessed with my wood piles!♡ Nothing beats stacking, it looks so pretty when I'm done!
Materials - Materials for the best garden sheds range from tradition woods to ultra-tough, modern resins and vinyl coated stainless steel. As you can imagine, each of these materials have their pros and cons. Wooden sheds definitely have a traditional feel and garden smell to them, but in harsher weather areas they do need an annual coating of preservatives to keep them in really tip-top condition. Steel and resins, don’t have this issue, but over many years the color does have a tendency to fade slightly. In most cases, materials really come down to personal choice – as any well-designed shed will ultimately give you many years of use.
