8x16 Garden Shed Overview

An 8×16 shed makes for a perfect garden shade and offers a great way to utilize narrow spaces optimally. It offers 128 square feet of floor space without taking a lot of room, ideally suited for basic storage needs. You can use your shade to house lawnmowers, fertilizer, power tools, gardening equipment, workbench, and any other outdoor item. Sturdy walls can be used for floating shelves to store smaller items.

9′ 9¾” tall sidewalls complement the spacious interior, so you will have plenty of height for shovels, rakes, weed trimmers, and other long-handled tools.

With a floor space about the same size as a standard bedroom, an 8×16 shed can also be used as a tiny house, home office, studio, or workshop.

The shed features a 5-feet 4-inch wide door, which is wide enough to allow you to bring most equipment in and out with minimal hassle. To keep the storage space ventilated and prevent dampness, there is a large square window that opens wide on a frame of 3’9″.

Your shed is wooden and designed to last, and it comes with a lean-to roof, which looks great in many settings. For a custom look and to make your shed stand out, you can finish your shed with paint of your liking.
