The lighting surrounding this garden shed is not only gorgeous but also soothing. This shed could be an outdoor sauna, what with the cool exterior and relaxing elements this shed incorporates. The structure itself is unique in design, so naturally, the unique lighting should follow suit. This great space has the beauty that is only amplified by such soothing, glowing lights.
This interesting cube-shaped building is definitely not a shed. Not the way the builder used slats on three sides to provide plenty of ventilation for those evening meals in the great outdoors. Note that the entire back wall is solid to help keep the weather out, you could add outdoor curtains to help block any excess breezes and keep out the rains. What a great way to create your own outdoor family room!
Pasadena, California, is known for its Craftsman style homes, a great number of which have been carefully preserved and restored. Owned by a University of Southern California (USC)-educated architect, Nott & Associates specializes in the Craftsman style. For a backyard shed, Nott custom designed and constructed the wooden doors, which include period-perfect details and hardware.
We, at Overholt & Sons, have done some research to gather some of the best garden shed photos out there. From our hours of looking, we have compiled a list of 30 exceptional and interesting photos. We set them apart, not as the only ideas and photos, but as some of the best. We intended to set these 30 photos apart from the rest of the noise for your inspiration, enjoyment, and enrichment.
Once you have a pile of pallet wood start by laying bits of wood on the floor. If you have different sizes and shades then mix them up to get a great effect. Start in the top corner and screw the boards in place using an electric screwdriver with screws long enough to go through the pallet wood and floor of the shed. You’ll need to cut some pieces to size so use the tape measure to mark the wood then cut using a saw of choice. Once the floor is down then line all the walls apart from the doors and eaves.
Each truss is made up of two 2 x 4 rafters and one 2 x 4 ceiling joist. The three boards are joined together with 1/2-in. plywood gussets. To speed up the assembly process, build all the trusses on the shed floor before erecting the walls. Start by cutting all the rafters to length with a 40° angle at one end of each. Cut 2 x 4s to 10 ft. long for the bottom chords of the trusses. Also, cut all of the plywood gussets.

It's important to accurately place the footings, or piers—it makes the build quicker and easier by preventing constant remeasuring and adjustment. We set the four corner piers in rough position and brought them into alignment with a string line. Then we used a tape measure to check the diagonals of this rectangle and to position the fifth and sixth piers relative to the perimeter.
This backyard shed’s design is a nod to the property’s farmhouse. But beyond its charming shake siding and robin’s egg blue door, the design is practical and savvy. Many of the materials used to build the shed were salvaged from a home renovation. The shed can also be moved, as it is set on concrete piers on gravel and sand instead of a permanent foundation.
This open concept garden shed almost looks like a farmhouse. The open area would be perfect as a gathering area for guests or partygoers for your next backyard soiree. The super cute furnishings make this space absolute charming and it would be hard to pass up the opportunity to sit in this adorable, tiny space. This is a great space to utilize storage and double as an entertainment venue for later.
Next, frame the floor with 2x6s. Start by cutting the 12-ft.-long rim joists for the front and back and marking the joist locations. Cut the joists and nail them to the rim joists. When you’re done, square the joists (Photo above). Then use a taut string line or sight down the 12-ft. rim joist to make sure it’s straight. Then drive toenails through the joists into the 6x6s to hold the joists in place.
This backyard shed doubles as a romantic farmhouse. Unlike a typical farmhouse, this shed oozes all things romantic, from the cut out hearts to the rustic feel. It would be hard not to fall in love with this cozy little shack, as it is adorable to admire and probably even more fun to be in. This would make the perfect, quaint addition to an outdoor garden party area.
Before beginning to build any foundation for your shed, consult your local building inspector to determine what type of foundation you will need. The decision will be based on the height and size of your storage shed. Regardless of the size of your shed, a building inspector needs to make sure that the storage building is up to code for your local area.
The wooden portabase is a time and cost saving base perfect for garden sheds. The portabase is constructed from timber and comes in a range of sizes to suit different garden buildings. The base features spikes on each corner; these spikes can be sunk into the ground offering a stable base for a garden building. You will need to ensure the ground you install your portabase onto is level otherwise your building could end up getting damaged.
This is the last of our photos on garden shed designs. However it is not the least. While most of the other nature-friendly shed designs are more about meshing with the greenery around them, this shed is more fitting to the barrenness around. The setting here is dryer and more desert-like, but no less beautiful. The natural wood look fits great with the sand and the rocks as well as the more desert friendly plants. IDEA: Try a desert garden and add a wooden and unpainted shed to compliment it.
Outdoor wall lanterns are the perfect lighting elements for an outdoor shed. Especially if the shed is turned into a working or relaxing space, these lanterns only add intrigue to the whole area. From bar sheds to a child’s play space, proper lighting is important when it comes to lighting up your refurbished garden shed. With outdoor lanterns like these, it is easy to create an illuminated space easy to rest your eyes on.
This outdoor structure is a little bit of both: you have a small storage space to the right and a cozy space to the left where you can place a few chairs and watch the rain pour on your garden or look at the stars, since part of the roof is made of glass. The disadvantage is that it’s not going to be cheap to build considering it’s a pretty specific design.
This garden hut shed is practically growing into the scenery. The hut is sheer nature, as depicted by the garden growing off the roof of the structure. This shed has undoubtedly been in this surrounding for a while, but that does not diminish the function of it. If anything, the charm of this shed surpasses the time this tiny shed has probably spent on this hillside.
The roof panels are heavy and a bit awkward, so round up three strong helpers for this part of the job. Move the panels into position and lean them against the front and back walls. Then set up ladders inside the building for two helpers and push one of the panels up to them. Slide the panel up the roof until the bird’s-mouths drop over the top plate of the wall.
