Options You Can Add to These 12x16 Barn Plans

I have tons of information available here on this website if you want to do any of the following:

Adding double or single shed doors

Adding shed windows

Changing the shed roof style

This 'Big' small barn is great for storing all your lawn equipment in.   The floor is built with all treated lumber with 2x6 floor joists spaced 16" on center for storing that big riding mower you'll want to park in there.

The recommended siding is 'LP Smartside' engineered pre-primed siding that will endure harsh weather climates.  You can certainly use the siding of your choice.

This shed can easily be lengthened or shortened depending on your needs, or just stick with the easy framing for wall and roof members at 2' on center.
