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

If you have been living in the same place for a while, you are likely to have started outgrowing your living space and garage. For homeowners looking to declutter their garage, this classic storage shed offers 48 square feet of space, providing room for your outdoor furniture, lawnmowers, wheelbarrows, bikes, sports gear, and more. It has 7′ – 2 1/2″ height walls that offer vertical storage space for your garden tools, plus you can add shelves and drawers to organize small items that can easily get lost in the clutter.

Thanks to its functional design, the shed is also ideally suited for use as a small workshop, chicken coop, hobby house, and firewood storage unit. It has a wide 5′ – 4″ door that offers easy access while making it easy to move bulky items into place.

Gable vents have been strategically placed at the top for optimal air circulation, which ensures your belongings remain in good condition for the time they are in the shed.

Because the shed is small, you should be able to complete it in about two weekends. Finish it to your liking to add interest or match it with other structures you may have.
