My thoughts and feelings about free shed plans on the internet:

Who needs a free shed plan that lacks detail and leaves you guessing on the steps? With everyone of my shed plans, you get a detailed plan, clearly detailed materials list, and if you follow the steps, a professional result that would be the envy of many neighbors.

If you are reading this, I am glad you were able to find my site and read this!  Because many of the top search results that show up first on google for the search term 'shed plans' show up first because they offer 'free shed plans.'  I have checked them all out.  They supply free shed plans, however they do not give all cut lengths and especially they don't give angle cuts for roof trusses and rafters.  To get those, you have to buy their 'premium' plans.  It is so dissapointing that google gives precedence to sites like these.

Let me ask you:  Do you do your job for free?  Did you tell your present employer that if they hired you that they wouldn't have to pay you for your work?  Then once hired you told them "If you want me to do that, well then I require a wage for that."  I don't think so but this is what these companies are doing that lure you in with 'Free shed Plans'.

I love customer pictures from the sheds they've built

Consider the advantage of having your own personal space. Whether it's a home office, workshop, or art studio, creating a space that's entirely yours can be deeply satisfying. With my 10x12 shed plans, you can truly make this space your own.  Like Dan's workshop in the pic to the left.

You don't have to be a professional to build your shed

You can absolutely build a beautiful shed in your backyard where you can store your garden tools, work on your hobbies, or even set up a home office? Perhaps the thought of building the shed yourself may seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. 

All my 10x12 shed plans are highly detailed, come with a materials list, a comprehensive building guide, and, most importantly, I offer email support for all your questions.  

Since I have been selling shed plans on the internet, I have had 100's of diy customers send me pictures of their beautiful sheds and many of them have told me it was the first time they ever attempted trying to build a project of this magnitude.  But you know what, they all did a fantastic job even without having a whole lot of experience building anything!

DIY shed building with 10x12 shed plans is not just about the space, but the experience in itself is self-rewarding. The feeling of accomplishment once you've completed constructing your shed from scratch is absolutely priceless.

My  detailed 10x12 shed plans are designed with the DIYer in mind. They provide clear guidelines for everything from the floor up to the roof that make it achievable to construct a sturdy and professional looking shed right in your backyard.

Here's Dan again in his 10x12 barn shed he built with the huge loft that gives so much more storage than say a saltbox of gable shed.

Creating something of your own can be incredibly satisfying. Even if you aren't experienced with tools, a 10x12 shed plan can guide you every step of the way, from the first step of the project to the final nail.

Always check your local building codes first

Hurricane ties one requirement from the Florida bad weatherYour Building Code May Require Hurricane Ties

Have you thought about the building permit and local codes? Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the legal aspects of your project. Fortunately, these 10x12 shed plans are designed bearing in mind the need for a building permit, and adherence to local building codes, thus saving you from potential hitches with the local building department.

I try to write all my shed plans so that they conform to the national building codes however it's impossible to satisfy them all.

Florida for example will have some of the most stringent codes just because of all the detrimental weather they have had.  Several improvements have occured due to this, one of which is incorporating hurricane ties with each truss and rafter.  You will find these on all my shed plans.

You've got the backyard space, I've got your plans

One undeniable advantage of detailed 10x12 shed plans is the possibility of building a structure with perfect wall frames fitted with top and bottom plates. This gives your shed a sturdy and lasting structure, allowing for a durability that will withstand the test of time.

Each 10x12 shed plan offers an ideal storage space, whether you're looking to store a riding mower, gardening tools, or transform it into a functional home office. And with doors of your choice, such as double shed doors, accessing your stored items or moving around your office furniture becomes a breeze.

How much does it cost to build a shed?

So, how much does building a shed cost? Naturally, the total cost of building a shed will depend on various factors, including the type of materials you use and whether you need to hire any specialized tools. However, using one of my 10x12 shed plans could offer significant savings. As the plans provide a precise list of what you need, there's minimal waste.  Plus, you can expect to pay double if you had hired a shed builder to build your shed!

Maybe you’ve been considering a small shed, but imagine what more space could do for you. A 10x12 shed offers plenty of space and versatility. From a barn shed, a gable roof shed to a lean-to shed, you get to select one that suits your needs and your yard. It's vital to remember that the right dimensions of your shed are paramount for its functionality.
