Great Plans Make Great Tool Sheds
A good set of plans will give you a great looking shed specifically designed for your house and needs. You’ll save on building costs, and have a much superior longer lasting shed than a commercially assembled shed. Not to mention you’ll have a unique design suited to your exact needs and it won’t be a cookie cutter replica that every other neighbor on the block has. You’ll add inexpensive value and functionality… and it all starts with a good set of tool shed plans.

Building your own shed is an intelligent decision because it can save you time and money, and also helps ensure your finished shed is built to last. Building a shed from scratch, whether it’s 10×12, 12×16 or any other size, allows you personal control over every aspect of the project. You will purchase your own materials (this can save you money as well!), making sure they’re up to spec. How hard is it to look at rotting wood and decide not to buy it? With a large shed company, this choice isn’t quite so straightforward! Personal control over your shed, provided you are well guided by quality shed designs (which should come with a complete materials list; avoid offers that don’t), should help the finished shed last for years and generations to come.

These plans are easily used by complete beginners, even if you’ve never picked up a saw or a hammer before. So every plan has detailed step by step instructions. If you follow every step how can you go wrong?
I guess many of us have tried building something from scratch without a detailed plan, I certainly have. And how did that work out for you? I usually end up with a pretty good job, you know, it works and it looks ok. But I don’t usually get it right first time, which means I’ve wasted hours checking measurements and redrawing my “plans” or should I say doodles. And boy is it annoying when you cut a piece of wood and then find it’s too short.
In general, smaller windows are recommended for your shed. A smaller window provides more security and also allows for more storage space and wall space inside your shed. If you plan to use the shed as a workspace be sure to select a window that can be opened to allow for ventilation.
