Our sheds come in all sizes and materials including wood, resin and metal. Decide which style fits best with your home. A wooden shed is traditional, versatile and offers opportunities to customize. You can paint your wooden shed any color to match the backdrop of your home, and then add windows, cabinets or shelving. Remember to use high-quality exterior primer and paint on the entire building to help protect against pest and weather damage. If you’re looking for low maintenance and quick-and-easy assembly, a resin shed may be your answer. Consider models made of plastic, vinyl or high-density polyethylene. A resin shed requires no protective weather coating or treatment, and it’s usually less expensive than wood. For security and durability, try a metal shed, which can resist termites, mold, mildew and even fire. Unlike their wood and resin counterparts, many metal sheds feature reinforced hinges, which can help deter thieves. Metal is also typically the least expensive shed material option. To extend the life of your metal shed, choose the right location, at least partially shaded and away from harsh elements. Keep it clean inside and out and apply a weatherproof coating if necessary. When you decide which shed is right for you, we’ll make the buying process as simple as possible, with delivery and installation at your convenience.big sheds 1LET US INSTALL IT FOR YOU Our experts specialize inshed delivery and installation Build Your Quote Wood Sheds Resin Sheds Metal Sheds Installation Included Sheds Shop Sheds by Size Small Sheds = up to 45 sq. ft.

Our Super Sheds come in many different sizes, but the most noteworthy is the 20′x20′ because it is the largest shed that we have to offer. In fact the 20′x20′ is the largest shed allowed by the California Building Code. Anything larger than 400 square feet has to be attached to a permanent concrete foundation (for buildings in excess of 400 square feet please see our full line of Detached Garages). Our Super Sheds were originally designed to hold vehicles, boats, tractors, and any other heavy duty, large objects. Although we still see that many of the Super Sheds are used for just that, we also see many of our customers find the Super Sheds the ultimate hobby room, craft room, game room, etc. Remember that the Super Shed, like all of our sheds, can be designed exactly how you wish. Let us build you one with just a 36″ door with no large entrance or let us open it up with one of our large steel garage doors. Whatever your use, we can design it to fit your needs! The Super Shed has all the same great construction features of our standard sheds with a few key upgrades. See our Super Shed page for more information.big sheds 3Large 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. Please view our Owners Shed Pictures Gallery to see examples of garage doors installed on sheds. Start Planning and Building a Large Shed Today!
