  1. Can the door be put on the opposite side? It does not seem like it makes sense for the roof to slope towards the door – snow and rain and ice will fall in front of the door. Better to slop the roof away from the door and towards the back of the sled?

    • Actually, this is a “Lean To” shed, meaning it’s standing against the wall or fence. Do you want all the rain and debris to collect by the back wall? Perhaps you need another type of shed: free standing with single or double sloped roof.
      Good luck.

  2. I like just what i been looking for .

  3. What’s the estimate cost to build this? Looks pretty pricey.

  4. Completed the 4×8 Lean-to. A lot seemed to be missing from the plans relating to the rafters and roof process

  5. Hello,

    Please….Does anyone have plans for a 6×12 Lean-To enclosed shed?

    Thanks,

    Tom

  6. Do you have plans of this same shed but with a single door on the side rather than two doors on the front? It would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks
    John
