  1. Really like the plan but as a novice joiner do you have anything a bit more basic

    • There is plenty of videos on how to construct these. Even beginners can cut the boards to the right sizes needed for the most difficult parts, Roof truss. Go to youtube and fill in search area with your size shed and you can watch many of them being built and explained for you the details. You can also build these without any over hang which makes it easier as well.

  2. Awesome plans but, can you make a 10×12 lean to shed plan? Please?

    How do I download a project

    • Just click on the size you want and it automatically shows the plans, the material lists and cuts. I didn’t have to down load mine. Anytime you see download beware though as you could be downloading something that is not the plans or instructions but something tied to these that publishers trick people into loading on their computers.
