  1. very nice looking wood shed

  2. Good looking shed plans are easy to follow

  3. This is a great size wood shed for me. Thanks. Here in Arizona I just don’t need a great big one. The one I have now I am always having to duck when I go out the door. I really like the design for the front opening on your plan.
    Thanks again.

    The ends of boards are more prone to absorb moisture than the sides or face, even if they are sealed or stained. I suggest you shorten all the walls by 4″ so that the siding can completely overlap the floor boards (particularly on the sides).

  5. What would be the ideal gap space between the floor boards for this project?
