Building your own shed doesn't have to be hard… or expensive. With these plans and some tools you can build your own for half the cost of a shed from one of the big box stores.
If you go to a box store to buy this shed plan on dropping at least at least $700 and you still have to put it together. Don’t be discouraged, there is hope. You can basically have the same shed, for less than half the cost AND get to tell your friends you built it yourself.
Just follow these complete plans with simple instructions and pictures and learn.
Everything you need to build a shed like this has been laid out by Ana and Gina at ana-white.com. Thanks for the heads up on exactly how to build a sweet-looking useful shed for cheap!

Here’s what they have to say:
“When I first started building projects, I didn't care if I worked in the gravel driveway on a cold day. I didn't care if I had a little spot behind the boat, on the floor in the garage to work. I was so crazy about building, I found a way around anything to work on a project.
But over the years, slowly, tool by tool, I've been working up to a dedicated work space. And boy is it nice.”
And here's a few notes from Gina:
– I found it saved about $15-$20 to use this set of hinges & latch, instead of buying them individually. You'll end up with two extra latches, but I'm sure they'll come in handy elsewhere!
– Every minute I spent on this was timed, and the entire build took almost 8 1/2 hours (including roofing, excluding finishing). So this could definitely be a weekend project!
– The paneled doors were kind of tough to get tight. Use a pipe clamp! If you don't have one, nail one corner of an end board and squeeze the boards together while someone else nails all of 'em.
– The roof allows you to put the shed about 8″ away from a structure (meaning there's an 8″ gap between the shed and other structure). If you want to lessen that gap, you'll have to resize the roof.Shopping List:
18 – 2×2 @ 8 feet long
44 – 5 1/2″ wide cedar fence pickets
1 – 2×4 @ 8 feet or stud length
4 – 1×3 @ 8 feet long
8 – 1×4 @ 8 feet long
