  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

  4. Do you have 4′ x 16′ plans as well?

  5. i was looking for a 6 X 14 shed plans if you have them ?

  6. I was looking for a 2 x 10 x 6 open front wood kindling shed/garden barrier lean to shed. I would have the front be 8′ tall tapering to 6′ in the back. I was planning on thick lattice around all sides except the side to the south which I would put picket fencing. Thanks!

  7. Maybe I missed it somewhere but what keeps the doors closed other than a chain around the door handles?

  8. I’m planning on building a 4’x12’ lean to shed against my house on an existing concrete floor. It will not be attached to the house in order to avoid potential increases on property taxes. The existing concrete floor slopes away from the house at 3/4” every 4’. Looking for suggestions as to designing and cutting the skids so that walls, when constructed, will fit flush against the wall. I intend to use the concrete flooring as the floor for the shed so will thus not be constructing a framed floor. Also, I intend on using your 4×10 shed plans but of course will be modifying them to construct my 4×12 shed. Of course I would use your plans if you already had them available for a 4×12. I would appreciate any comments and suggestions on my intended shed.

  9. Do you have plans for a similar sized shed with the door on the end? I’m wanting to build a small lean to for lumber storage. Door placement on this design would make getting the boards and sheets in/out very difficult, if not impossible. Otherwise, I really like the size and design of this shed. Thanks
