Before you shingle the roof, install metal drip edge. Then nail a row of starter shingles along the bottom of the roof. Install the rest of the shingles according to the package instructions. Before painting, we filled spaces on the exterior with acrylic caulk. Then we rolled and brushed two coats of top quality acrylic exterior paint onto the trim and siding. When all of this is done, your pub shed will be complete!
This shed is quite simple but with complex decoration. It started with a simple shed shell. Then some really nice windows and doors were added. Plus it was mulched nicely. In addition a number of little knick-knacks decorate the shed. The shed is simple and modern yet tastefully done. IDEA: Buy a simple shed shell and decorate it exotically with flowers, mulching, and more.

Thank you for visiting our blog. Yes, the 16×16 Aspen is a great choice as it offers lots of storage space and overall value. We would recommend footers that are slightly smaller than your typical one car garage. Considering ground movement, you definitely want that slab on a solid foundation to keep from cracking. Yes, the concrete pad can act as a floor with no wood floor needed, the bottom plate has to be a treated material. You’ll want anchor bolts placed in the concrete to place the treated plate to hold the shed to the concrete floor. THe shed is a true 16’x16′, so 192”x192″ are the dimensions. Great questions. Feel free to give us a call at 855.853.8558 if you have any other questions!
On top of this, check that the best location in your garden allows the easiest access, including the side of the shed in order to apply treatment to your shed. Have a visual image in your head; you may not want to carry heavy objects to and from the bottom of your garden. For our summerhouses, you may want to consider whereabouts in your garden there is the best access to natural light or even the best view.
First and foremost, you will want to construct an ornate case to serve as your liquor cabinet. This should be easily accessible to whomever may be fulfilling the function of makeshift bartender. Secondly, a handcrafted station should be installed in a fashion that is inviting to all guests. L-shaped formats can help you cram in tons of extra company, but horizontal rows are equally alluring. When it comes to the counter tops, any composition will do. Just make sure the surface matches the stools.
In order to building a shed, depending on where you are located you may or may not be required to obtain a building permit. A building permit is required so a certified inspector by the town/city/municipality can inspect the construction of the shed to ensure it meets regulations for safety, spacial requirements, and visually. This information can be found by either visiting the town/city/municipality website or contacting the town/city/municipality by phone.

The roof truss can be built using 2x4 or 2x6 lumbers. There are different ways to build the truss, the most common is cutting out the rafters and assembling them using gussets. The easiest way to build the roof truss will be using plans. The other option will be to lay the 2x4’s or 2x6’s on the level floor set them how you want your roof and make a template. Once you are happy with the look of your template you can build the rest.
This tiny little shed has seen some things. This shed looks as if it has been around for a great while. Maybe it was a storage shed at one point, but these days, this tiny shed look as if it is a playhouse for children. Set in a more rural backdrop, this shed pops with color against the brown trees and foliage. It is a perfect space for a child to go and have a tea party with imaginary friends or for a kid playdate.
This is a very beautiful shed and it matches the main house that was originally designed by J. Merrill Brown back in 1887. In fact, it’s like a miniature version of the main residence. The colors chosen for the exterior are simple but beautiful and the roof is charming as well. It has a very chic look and it’s like an updated, more elegant version of the shed presented above.
When building the floor frame, which includes the mudsill, floor joists and perimeter band joists, use 2 x 6 or 2 x 8 pressure-treated lumber. Many prefab sheds use untreated construction-grade lumber for the floor frame, which is fine--if you plan to keep your shed indoors. Even in ideal conditions on the perfect site, a shed floor will be exposed to some moisture, and in time, untreated lumber will rot.
Is there have a bunch of old materials laying around that could be put to good use? A few cool shed ideas, can turn even seemingly useless materials into a great backyard garden shed. Plus it can be done cheaply. With some old windows, used pallets, and even driftwood, plus a host of other retired materials, these garden shed ideas can bring your backyard garden to life.

A wooden base is sufficient for most smaller sheds. It’s basically a simple wooden frame, strengthened with crossbeams, onto which you build your shed. Check the weight of your shed and its contents. If you intend to install a large garden building - anything larger than 10 x 8 feet - or store a lot of heavy equipment, consider a paving slab or concrete base instead.
Flowers are always a good idea when it comes to creating a tiny shed space. No matter what you are turning your shed into, you should be sure to decorate the landscape around it appropriately. Going for a rustic, desert theme? Succulents and cacti are your go-to. Prefer an English garden space? Gorgeous multi-colored flowers and tiny table set up for tea would be perfect.
With a plastic shed base on the other hand, although the sandier elements of the ground are still washed away (remember this is considerably reduced if you use our recommended membrane at the time of installation), the interlocking function of the grids provides a constant level base. You should also remember that a plastic base will not be affected by the rain in the same way that wood or compacted soil is, which means your base remains solid all year around.
After laying out the 12 blocks, use a straight 2 x 4 and a 4-ft. level to ensure that all the blocks are level. Shim up any low blocks with strips of asphalt roofing, cedar shingles or 2-in.-thick concrete patio block. Next, form each front and rear band joist by nailing a 2 x 6 to a 2 x 8 mudsill. Set the mudsills on top of the blocks running across the front and rear of the shed. Cut a third 2 x 8 mudsill to fit along the tops of the center row of foundation blocks.

The idea for this has been in my head for a while (and on a paper for a shorter while), but let’s face it: I need more DIY space — especially for tools and garden storage. The one-car garage I have is packed full all the time with the mower, gardening materials, woodworking tools, paint, and more. Even though I try as best I can to keep it organized(ish… meh) by cleaning it out once a year, that still means I spend a lot of time looking for the things I need in a very tight space (you would think losing things in a smaller space would be less frequent, but… nope).


Water is wood's worst enemy. Given the right circumstance and enough time, excessive moisture can rot framing, warp floors and doors, corrode hinges and breed mold and mildew. Fortunately, there's an easy remedy. First, be sure that the lowest wood member--the mudsill--is at least 6 in. above the ground. That's sufficient space to allow fresh air to circulate under the shed.
Modifications can be made to these plans if need be such added doors, windows, building dimensions, etc. Stud spacing, floor joist spacing, and roof joisting spacing is 16" on center, Materials can be changes as well such as wall, roof, and paint coverings. If you wish to print these plans, they can be printed to scale on 8x11 paper. A full pdf files is available on my website, along with other shed plans too. Building Plans Here
I am considering purchasing a 16×24 Everest Tall Barn and using it as a workshop/additional living space to include a full bathroom. For this reason, I am planning to run utilities to the building including natural gas, water, sewer, etc. Since there is no way of knowing where the floor joists will be, there is no way to know where to locate the sewer line for proper flow (connection location) through a concrete slab. Therefore, I was hoping to have a standard footer with craw space installed and attached the Everest on top of it (just like a house). This way I could access the utilities by removing sections of the floor so I could run the sewer line (and other utilities) to exact areas of the building. Is it possible to have the building constructed/attached on top of this type of footer system?

The construction of a wood foundation is usually built using pressure-treated 2x6 lumbers. These parts are called the band on the ends and the joist in the middle of the band, spaced out 16-24 inches apart. The foundation frame will sit on top of pressure-treated 4x4 posts called skids. The skids will set on the cinder blocks or on top of gravel to prevent rot.
And since we started with a simple shed, we’re going to finish in the same tone. This cute garden shed has a very lovely, simple and clear look. It’s made with prefab wall panels and doors and windows that slip into precut openings, making the building process very quick and easy. Then all you have to go id decorate it with hanging baskets and boxes and add beautiful plants.
I’ve been looking at building a tiny house out of (2) 12×16 barn sheds I want to have the sheds install on top of a 2′ concrete foundation wall to allow a second story loft. I’m not sure if I need footings they will be at right angles to each other separated at the corners by 3 to 4 feet I could send you a floor plan of my design and see what you think

Thank you for visiting our blog. That sounds like a fun and quite rewarding project. Sounds like the scope of your project exceeds what we offer. We manufacture sheds (shells) and build them on site. However, we do not customize them to be living spaces. Unfortunately, we I can’t help answer your question. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

The plans showed up stapled together, with floor plans, an isometric drawing, and then half of the instructions are for the concrete pad/anchors, with alternative designs for people in wetter locales. Finally there are some pages of general materials advice. It's really a great deal, when some garage plans are 200 bucks. Those, I believe, are a bit more detailed, but then this structure is not meant to be a crazy engineering undertaking. The plans are worth the 30 dollars.
Cut the sill piece and assemble the windows with pocket screws. Using a router with a 3/8-in. rabbet bit, rout a 3/8-in.-deep recess on the back of the window to receive the 1/4-in. Plexiglas acrylic sheet (Photo 14). Set the window frame, recessed side down, over a piece of acrylic sheet and trace the shape with a permanent marker. Cut the curve with a fine-tooth jigsaw blade and the straight sections with a fine-tooth blade in a table saw or circular saw.
