Build Your Own Small Shed for Sports Equipment, Tools, Hobbies, and More

A small-sized shed can save you a lot if you organize it well to store more items. This 4×6 storage shed takes up just a little space in the yard yet offers enough space for your belongings. With its 24 square feet of space, it can help you free up a significant amount of space in your garage by providing a home to items taking up space in the garage.

The shed’s interior is large enough to hold a lawn mower, power tools, small outdoor furniture, bikes, and other small items. To better utilize the interior, you may want to add drawers, hooks, shelves, pegboards, and other space organizers that can help you keep your tools of trade neatly organized.

Even better, its classic gable roof allows you to create additional loft storage space or hand small items overhead.

A wide 5′ – 4″ door paves the way in and out of the shed and allows easy access when collecting items from inside. With two gable vents on the shed’s sides, moisture will not accumulate inside the shed, meaning your belongings will remain in good condition year-round.

Thanks to its versatile design, this shed can also be used as a pet house, temporary firewood shed, or workshop.

For those keen on aesthetics, you can finish or paint the shed to your liking. Painting its exterior also does a great job of protecting the wooden walls from elements, which ensures longevity.

A nice set of plans to give us an idea… A nice set of plans to give us an idea of what it costs to build on site vs buying a prefab structure, and the quality differences between them. This set of plans is "bomb proof" according to my local lumberyard guy. 2x6 joists on 12" centers, compared to 2x4s on 24" centers for the prefab models. A real foundation, not just some 4x4 skids. It looks like a major amount of work, but the result could be a really nice garden shed sturdy enough to house our commercial-grade chipper as well as the big mower.

The price for plans is way too high The price for plans is way too high, but the plans are fairly decent. You DO have to know a little something about construction and adjustments of measurements, but for the most part, not too bad.

The plans are missing a critical step The plans were missing a critical step, and my original message to Shedplans wasn't received. I received a message from them after posting my problem here, and they subsequently sent me the revised instructions. Very grateful for their follow-up. Now if lumber prices would just return to normal....
