  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.
