Easy Diy Shed Plans 

You'll find all types of diy shed plans here for gable, barn, saltbox, and lean to style sheds, small and large.  You can use them to build sheds for storage, she sheds, playhouses, workshops, garden sheds, tool sheds, chicken coops, music studios and more.  Some of them can even be used to build shed to houses and granny flats!

All my shed plans are very understandable, easy to use and follow whether you are a novice or experienced builder.  They all come with detailed blueprints, comprehensive building guide with step by step instructions, materials list, free cupola plans, and email support from John, the shedmaster here at shedking.

Barn Shed Plans

 If you want a great shed with the most storage space for the foot print taken up, then it's a good idea to build one of these. They have the most extra storage space in the loft.


Gable Shed Plans

These plans are for gable roof style and they are built using either trusses you build or are built with rafters and a ridge board. These are fairly simple sheds to build and have lofts,


Saltbox Shed Plans

These plans are for saltbox roof style sheds. They are built with trusses that you build. These sheds are perfect for general storage, garden shed, tool sheds, potting sheds, playhouses and more. This shed in my opinion, if you are wanting to build a shed for gardening, this is the one. It has lots of charm and character with it's desirable design.


Lean-To Shed Plans

This is the shed you'll want to build to store your bikes in, garden tools, lawnmower, or just needing some extra space to get some stuff out of your garage. They are easy to build with their simple single slope roof, which is commonly referred to as a 'shed roof'.


Plans for Firewood Storage Sheds

Here's a simple and easy to build firewood storage shed. You can build 2 of them and put them side to side for more storage! The sides are open for better ventilation so your wood won't get all rotten and musty smelling!


Shed Pictures from my customers:

Since I've been selling shed plans on the internet since 2006, I've gotten hundreds of pictures from the sheds they've built.  You can see them here.

Here's a comment from one of my recent customers:

Hello, 

I've been fortunate to have found reference to your informative site/plans. 

I'm a civil engineer on paper but have zero hands-on "DIY" kind of build. Having interpreting drawings as a job, following your estimate and plans were so simple to follow along while making minor adjustments to better suit our needs. I'm sure anyone with little to no experience would feel confident and comfortable in a similar boat. 

Per your request, I've been meaning to send you build pictures but here I am now. 

Cheers, 

Sang.

What's It Going To Cost To Build Your Shed?

The best way to find out what it's going to cost you to build your shed design is to take the material list for the shed you want to build that has all the shed building materials to your lumber supply store. You can either have an employee there look up the prices for you based on the shopping list, or you can look them up yourself. The building process will

You can even go online and look up prices! For example, if you visit lowes.com, they have a search box where you can enter in the item and find out each price! This will save you some time. The only drawback I see to this is that I find it really beneficial to go to these big box lumber stores and see exactly what I want. 

For example, the LP Smartside siding panels I recommend to use: some stores carry a cheap variation of these that have a brown color to them on the inside of the panel, and this is not what you want! The have the consistency of a 'fibre' panel that will crack easy. The true LP siding panels are pre-primed on the outside surface and have a natural osb color on the inside surface. 

Detailed and Full Color Shed Building Guides:  They're Included Free With Your Purchase!

When you purchase one of my shed plans, you will get a building guide that is specifically tailored to the shed you are building. For example, if you purchase a barn shed plan, you're going to receive a copy of my Gambrel Shed Building Guide shown to the right. 

Like wise, for gable sheds - my gable building guide, and for Lean-to's - my lean to shed building guide, and saltbox sheds - my saltbox building guide.

I'd love to see your shed pictures!

This customer used my 10x12 shed plans.Send Me Your Pictures

It gives me a great sense of satisfaction and pride when customers send me pictures of their sheds.  I started Shedking way back in 2003 and since then I have received 100's of photos from happy customers.

If you take the time to send me pictures of your awesome shed, and they have you and/or helpers in them, and you give me permission to post them on my website and social media sites like facebook and pinterest, I may reward you financially with a gift!

Also include some detailed information like why you built your shed, what you thought of the plans, etc!

I'd love to hear from you!

Do you need a unique design?

Can't find the right shed plans? Most of my outdoor shed plans that I sell at shedking are a max of 12' wide. So if you are in need of a really large shed

for your storage area, or even a custom smaller shed with a simple design because you don't have much space, contact me. I can do custom outdoor plans for

just about any style shed whether you need a potting shed or you've got a really big lawn mower and need a super large door or bigger double doors, I may have the

time to help you. It takes me quite a bit of time to do plans up so they won't be free plans!

It's a great idea to get a building permit

 My shed construction plans can be used to apply for building permits because they are designed to be aligned with typical local building codes.

Not every city or locality is exactly the same when it comes to requirements for sheds. Some may require you to have an engineers stamp. I do not

provide engineers stamps on my plans. You would have to contact a local engineer licensed in your state.

The Program I use To Develop My Plans

I use a program called sketchup pro.  There is a free version of the program which you can find here.  If you are interested in getting the sketchup file for any of my plans just contact me. 

Sketchup has a neat app you can download on your phone to view any of my shed plans in virtual reality. Read more about this app.

3D Shed Models for These Shed Plans

I have 3D shed models for all most all of these shed plans.  Use these models to walk inside or around your shed while you are building to see all the details in virtual reality to make your shed building project easier.  You can even use your smartphone, laptop, virtual reality goggles with the augmented reality feature to see what your shed will look like in your back yard.

Check out my 3D shed models here.
