Lean To Shed against side of house
I am considering building a lean to shed. I have done lots of small shop-based woodwork, but this would be my first time building a structure. My house has vinyl siding on it. If I wanted to build an 8x4 to 8x8 lean to shed that would sit next to the house, should I plan on tying it into the house or leaving it freestanding?
My understanding is that if I leave it freestanding, I could build it on skids. If I build it to tie into the house, I'll need to dig footers and make sure the structure will not move relative to the house wall. My concern with leaving it freestanding is any water that will get between the rear wall of the shed and the vinyl siding of the house. I'm unsure of what should be done in this situation. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
