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.
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.

This is nothing flashy or classy. Its paint is peeling, its roof is rusting, and its luster is gone. It looks drab to the eye looking for the latest and the greatest. However there remains some beauty. It may be hidden to the modern eye, but it is still there. It speaks of the glories of time past. It has the revered gothic style windows with their inspiring, curved and pointed arch. The roof has a delightfully rustic look that speaks of something that has been around for a long time and deserves to be cherished. The paint may be old and peeling but it is not meaningless. Rustic garden sheds may be old but they speak of having weathered many storms. This is aged beauty that will not disappear right away. So for the first IDEA: Reuse and enjoy oldness rather than getting rid of it.
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.
Crosscut the remaining joists and fasten them, as noted in the diagram, with joist hangers, joist hanger nails, 16d common nails, or 3½-inch deck screws. Crosscut the floor pieces and screw them to the long and short joists. Make yourself a small jig from scrap lumber to speed accurate spacing between each piece of flooring. Even better, make two. Place one at the front and another at the rear of each deck piece. Fasten the deck pieces with the jig in place. Lift the jigs out, position the next piece of decking, and repeat.
Well, not these plans. You have the option of building a very functional and spacious lean-to shed on different foundations. Your foundation choices are: concrete slab, a wooden floor supported by concrete piers, or a wooden floor supported by skids. That lost option also means that your lean-to could be mobile as well so you won’t have to decide where you want to permanently put it.
