  1. Why would you put door in front rain and snow falling off it blocking door. Just a thought

    • Hi Greg, I too find that leaning to the back looks and works better but, if the shed is to be against a building or a neighbor’s fence, the snow will get stuck and pile up on the roof. In that type of location, leaning to the front is better.

      However, I would extend the roof a bit to the front and sides, so rain and melt water drips away from the walls and doors.

  2. I cannot download the 4×10 lean to shed plans.
    I donated once and was able to download at my son’s house.
    Now, donated again and I cannot download. I have tried changing the way I approached but not go.
    What is the secret?

  3. NEED A DIAGRAM FOR A 4 X 18 LEANTOO SHED
