Large Shed Plans Building a Large Shed is a great way to add additional storage or work space to your yard or garden. Our extensive large shed plan library is filled with many different designs and sizes to help you build the perfect storage or workspace. Large Shed Wall Heights All of our large shed plans come with a taller wall that will allow you to install a regular residential home door. This makes it easier to install the shed door. There are two wall heights that come standard with many of our large shed plans, either 7′-7″ or 8′-1″. The 7′-7″ wall height allows you to install the shed siding with one piece going from the top pate down to over the bottom plate to floor connection to keep water out of the shed. It also allows you to build the door and window headers without the need for additional blocking above the header. If you want to build the walls using 82-5/8″ pre cut framing studs you will end up with a wall height that is about 8′-1″. This wall framing gives you a taller shed wall height and requires the use of “Z” metal flashing and blocking at the horizontal joints of the siding. Available Large Shed Plan Wall Heights The 7′-7″ wall height allows the shed walls to be built with a double top plate and 2×6 header above the door and no additional blocking above the 6′ -10 1/2″ door rough opening. This allows the shed door to be installed on any wall of the shed with the reassurance of the strength of a double 2×6 header. The wall height being lower than 8′ also allows the 8′ shed siding to be installed, and overhang the bottom 1 1/2″, without any siding joints. This reduces the flashing and siding materials needed to build the shed. It also makes the shed walls much easier to buld. The 8′-1″ shed wall height is used when you want to use a standard pre-cut framing stud that is 92 5/8″ long. This is the standard height of a residential home ceiling. The 8′-1″ allows 8′ sheets of drywall to be installed on the inside and still have some wiggle room at the floor. Large shed plans often use this height because of the simplicity of using the pre cut boards on all the walls. It does require a siding joint, and blocking and flashing on the joints at the 8′ level. Our shed plans often come with details showing the 7′-7″ wall height and then have notes instructing to use pre-cut studs for the 8′-1″ wall height. Shed Door Options We have two door options with our large shed plans. First you can use a factory built pre-hung door on any of our sheds. This allows you to quickly install the door of your choice. These doors are the same doors used in residential homes and fit perfectly into the rough opening specified on all of our large storage shed plans. If you want to make your own doors the large shed plans also come standard with door plans to fit the same rough opening. The only modification to the shed is installing a 2×4 trimmer around the perimeter of the shed door opening. So whichever door you plan to use we have a shed door solution for you. The large shed plan styles available are the classic gable shed, lean to shed, barn shed, gambrel shed and shed plans with garage doors. Large Roof Shed Designs There are many different design styles to choose from including the basic 4 in 12 sloped roof on our common shed plans, a 10 in 12 slope roof on our Cape Cod style and Colonial style sheds, a 12 in 12 slope on our Nantucket styles. The gambrel shed roof provides a multi slope roof that increases the storage space inside the shed. The gable shed is the most common style of shed plan and can be found on our regular shed designs as well as the Cape Cod and Colonial sheds. The Lean to has a single slope roof. Lean To Shed Plans Building a large lean to shed is a great way to build a simple large shed with a low roof line. Our larger lean to shed plans come with a low slope 2 in 12 pitch roof design. The roof can have either asphalt shingles or metal roofing installed. These lean to designs are great for building a large shed and keeping the roof line and construction costs down. Large Barn Shed Plans The barn shed is popular both on the farm and in the back yard. Its good looks and extra storage capacity make it a classic storage shed solution. The large gambrel barn shed designs include plans showing you how to build the loft which adds storage space above the main floor area. Shed Garage Plans Having a large roll up garage door on one or both ends of your storage shed make it easy to move large things in and out of the shed. Several of our large storage shed plans are designed with a overhead garage door. These plans include details showing you how to frame the opening so it is ready for the door to be installed.

ATV Covers and Outdoor Storage Another idea, if you do not have access to an indoor storage unit is to store the vehicle outside in a partially protected area. The corridor area between two closely neighboring homes, or beside a large structure like a barn, provides some protection from wind. Use a high-quality ATV cover made from a durable synthetic fabric such as nylon or polyester. Tie the cover securely to the ATV. Forget a canvas cover as this will retain water that promotes rust. When storing outdoors, remove the entire battery, and change the air and oil filters. Also clean the ATV and lubricate it generously. Change the oil to a synthetic blend to prevent freeze up as well.

Storage Sheds The best place to store an ATV is inside either in a shed or in your garage. because most people do not have additional room in the garage for an ATV, an outdoor shed or storage unit is the next best idea. While this might sound expensive, consider the downsides to storing the vehicle outside during the winter. Damage to the exterior, frame and fuel system (from frozen gas lines and ice build up) will far eclipse the cost of placing the ATV in a storage unit. Make sure the unit is heated and secure with a gate and locking garage-style door. Ground floor units are a must as well, because you will not be able to transport the vehicle to upper floors.
