A shed loft, or attic in your shed  can be used for a multitude of purposes!   Of course, the most obvious is using it for increased storage.  Another use is for sleeping quarters in tiny houses, cabins, and cottages.  Or it can be a play space in a children's playhouse. 

Whatever your need is,  you'll definitely find that building a shed loft will come in very handy!

A shed with a gambrel style roof offers the most storage space in the attic. This is because of the increased headroom provided with the gambrel truss. Maybe you want to keep the style of your shed roof to match your home which could be a gable style roof.  

Depending on the roof pitch, your gable style shed could offer up quite a bit of storage space in it's shed loft also.

The shed pictured above is my wife's 12x16 gable style shed.  The attic here doesn't look that big, but the roof pitch is like an 8/12 pitch.  You could easily make a tiny house with this shed plan and have a nice sleeping area up in the attic.
