Free Shed Plans from the pages of Popular Mechanics Magazine


Here are five beautiful sheds and backyard barns that you can build from free drawings and do-it-yourself building instructions by the editors of Popular Mechanics Magazine.



Backyard Barn Plans  Here's a beautiful and versatile, colonial-style, all purpose backyard building that you can use as a shed, workshop, cabana, pool house or lawn tractor garage. At 10 x 16 ft., this handsome building is large enough for most backyard needs. It has an  interior partition so it serves double duty as a storage shed and an all-weather children's playroom. Double doors on the side and gable end make it easy to access the space.


Build a Stylish Multipurpose Garden Shed  This handsome Colonial-style garden shed is proof that form and function can coexist in a backyard building. It isn't just practical, spacious and sturdy. It's also beautifully designed to be an asset, not an eyesore, to any property.


Super Tool Shed  Have indoor shelter for your outdoor tools. This design occupies a modest 6 x 8-ft. area—enough for a variety of tools, but not so large that it dominates a backyard landscape. The straightforward design is easy to expand—up to about 8 x 12 ft.—to suit your storage needs. Before you begin work, contact your local building codes office and find out about necessary permits or other requirements for this type of building.


Build A Two-In-One Shed  Take care of all your outdoor storage needs with a two-for-one backyard building. Here's a handsome Colonial-Style storage shed that's one of the most versatile, well-designed backyard buildings you'll ever find. In fact, it's really two sheds in one: a 10 x 12-ft. tool shed for general storage and an 8 x 10-ft. open-bay extension that's ideal for keeping firewood stacked and dry. The extension is also great for storing large items that might not easily fit into the main shed, such as lawnmowers, bicycles, patio furniture, wheelbarrows and stepladders.


Build Your Own Garden Tool Storage Shed From Popular Mechanics' Plans  If you're like most homeowners, you know that there's no such thing as enough storage space. There's a limit, after all, to the things you can squirrel away in your basement and garage. What you really need is a shed that's large enough to house an arsenal of outdoor power tools while providing organized space for everything from rakes and shovels to fertilizer and fuel. - Over the years, Popular Mechanics Magazine has featured a variety of backyard building, home improvement and woodwork projects as feature articles. Now, they offer many of the best projects on their website. These in-depth articles are illustrated with plans, photos and detailed isometric views. They follow the building from the planning stage through final finishing. So, they are step-by-step guides that will help you build the perfect project.
