    • Looks awesome! Cant wait to build this one. I’ve been looking for a good swing. Thanks as always.

    • Love all the plans, and the detailed assembly instructions. However I have to convert all the Feet, and Inches to Meters and Centimeters and Millimeters before I can do anything. (We are on the metric system here.
      So it would be nice if all the plans showed both measurements.

  • Thanks for pointing that out, plans have been corrected.

    • Hello. Your website and the plans provided here are awesome. Thank you very, very much. I am planning to build the 8×8 garden shed this month, with a due date of September 1st.

      Question… Is is possible to obtain a copy of the sketchup file for this 8×8 Garden Shed? Thanks for your time.

    • Thanks for the plans! Very easy to follow and construct. This was my first attempt building a shed and the framing went a lot easier than I thought. I did it all by myself so it took me three weekends to complete. The only thing I hd to research more was how to shingle a shed but there was plenty of videos on YouTube to help me out. I put some extra trim on my shed to spruce it up a little more. Thanks again for the plans I enjoyed building it.

    • It doesn’t say in the plans if the tongue and groove floor plywood is Pressure treated is that recommed or could you use just regular t&g since its already so high off the ground.

    • Here is the side view. I didn’t construct the roof overhang on the backside of the shed since this was facing towards the woods. I looked at the sheds at Home Depot and Lowes. They are good if you want something quick, but I wanted something that would last and I wanted more head room. This shed is perfect and it was easy to build and gives me 8 feet of head room.

    • My total cost was just around $1,400 (I already had a window and door which I used on the front of the shed). I know you could make this shed much cheaper (probably under $1,000) but i used exterior 3/4 plywood for the floor and 3/4 exterior siding (and pressure treated lumber for the base structure and the wall studs). I also used plywood and architectural shingles for the roof. The base and flooring of the structure ran me about $300 (sheathing, 2×6’s and screws), the siding was about $400 (it was $50 per sheet and you need 8). The lumber and nails for the walls and roof trusses was about $275. The roof (with shingles, felt paper and drip edge) cost about $250. Then about another $200 for the trim boards, benjamin moore stain, hinges, and a lock set. I do need to still make a ramp for the side so it is easier for my tractor and snowblower to get in and out. (I had fun building this shed and the plans were easy to follow or modify). If you have the time (a couple of weekends) and like to take on a project then I would say make the shed you won’t be disappointed. This shed is solid and probably one in similar quality would have cost me around $3,000 in my opinion (I live in NY). (If you do build it think about asking a friend to help out for a weekend. I built this myself but it would have been nice to have an extra hand when it came time to installing the roof (would save you a lot of trips going up and down the ladder).

        Hi Matthew,

        Can you confirm that the material list under the Wall Frames section that calls for 6- 2x6x10 is wrong and they mean 6- 2x4x10? I was so confused at the store until I realized when I got home that in the cutting list it seems to switch to 4- 2x4x9.5 and 2- 2x4x10.

        Thanks,
        Ian

    • I’m a beginner. I see the wall frame, but I don’t see how to attach the window and door to the wall.
      What are the measuements for the window?
      What are the measurments for the door?
      What I mean is, how tall and how wide are the window and door?
      Should I purchase the window first, then make sure the same size is cut out of the wall framing?
      Are some steps missing?
