Modern Shed 8X12 Plans
These printable PDF plans are for our modern shed, which features an oversized door (with an option for a double door) and a covered outdoor storage area, and include everything required to build an inspired shed.
This shed was designed to be as simple and affordable as possible. Windows are simple panes of polycarbonate; walls, flooring, and roof sheathing are almost entirely uncut sheets of plywood, eliminating wasted materials and wasted time.
SIZE: 96 sq ft. Enclosed shed footprint is 8x12 ft. Roof is 14x22 ft. 112 sq ft covered area on the right provided by an 8 ft roof overhang.
COST: $3500 USD. Material choices and local pricing will vary the total build cost.
WHAT’S INCLUDED: Instantly available digital download includes printable PDF 55 page step-by-step instructions, builder-ready blueprints, a materials list, a cut list, a digital album of 60 photos and illustrations of the build process, and a bonus 3D Sketchup model.
–Sketchup is a program that allows you to construct in 3D, examine all the construction details, modify the design, hide layers, take measurements, and explore the build. If you intend to modify these plans it’s a fantastic tool to make those changes and to familiarize yourself with the construction process digitally before doing it for real. Sketchup is available as an always-free web app, so there is no added cost.
–Please feel free to download any plans to price materials, or shop them around to builders to explore options or modifications. If you ultimately find that you can’t use them for your project I’m happy to get you a refund.
