Check out the features of this 16x30 barn shed


16' wide x 30' long x 14' 9-11/16" tall.

Shed Floor

  • Treated 2x6's spaced 16" on center with 5 -4"x6" treated support skids.
  • Plans show floor with concrete pier anchors and support blocking.
  • Floor sheeted with 3/4" regular plywood but can be pressure treated plywood.
  • You have the option of going with a concrete shed floor if desired.

Shed Walls

  • 2x6 wall framing spaced 16" on center with 7' 10.25" interior wall height.
  • Siding shown with plans is 7/16" LP Smartside siding panels ( link will open in a new tab or page) You may use lap siding if preferred buy must first cover wall framing with 1/2" osb or plywood first.  This is not shown in the plans.
  • Use cedar trim, pvc trim, or trim of your choice.  Plans show white trim on roof and corners with cedar for the door trim.

Shed Doors

  • Customer built 5' wide double shed doors.
  • Customer has the option of going with pre-hung doors.

Shed Roof

  • Framed with customer built 2x6 gambrel trusses spaced 24" on center.  I suggest going with engineered 16' wide trusses from a truss manufacturer for purposes of obtaining a building permit.  These trusses will have engineering specs.  I do include truss plans with the blueprints but they will not show load limits etc.
  • Roof sheeted with 7/16" osb or plywood sheeting. Plans show shingled roof with option of using 3-tab or dimensional shingles.


  • This one is huge!  The interior headroom is 8' 1-3/4" off the finished loft floor. 
  • Loft/ceiling joists are 2x12's spaced 24" on center.
  • Loft floor sheeted with 3/4" plywood sheeting but may be 3/4" OSB.

Getting a permit:

I always recommend getting a building permit with any of my shed plans.  If your building department requires an engineers stamp for the approval of getting a permit, then you will have to submit the plans to a local structural engineer.  I do not provide those calculations with my plans.
