Build a Practical 6x8 Lean-to Storage Shed for Your Small Compound

Sometimes getting safe storage space for your tools can be a challenge. This is especially true if you have a small yard.

For homeowners with small yards looking to create a storage unit for their belongings, this 6×8 might generate your interest. With 48 square feet, this shed can hold farm tools, toys, gym supplies, sporting gear, bikes, and more. Depending on your storage needs, you can personalize the interior with drawers, hooks, and shelves to make the interior fit your needs. That way, you can have a way to reclaim your garage and leave it to serve the purpose it is meant for.

The shed features a double 5′ – 4″ width doors which makes it easier for you to walk in and lets enough light inside should you use the shed for other purposes like office space. Vents have been installed to help regulate humidity within the shed by driving away moist air to keep stored items dry, ultimately preserving their status for the time they remain in the shed.

With its versatile lean-to-roof design, the shed can serve as a golf shed, an art studio, a workshop, or a playhouse for your kids.

You can choose to paint the outside to match the shed with your house or other outbuildings. Depending on the purpose of building the shed, you may also add some creativity by painting some artistic patterns while painting. For instance, painting some toy patterns can be more captivating if you make a shed for kids to play in.

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.

Now if lumber prices would just return to normal....
