thanks buddy. I'm hoping the distance from the house is okay. At least by not attaching it to the house I can always move it if the city doesn't like it.

Nice job on the shed. I'm looking to tackle a lean to shed myself in the near future (hopefully fall). I have a narrow space, between house and fence, so I'm looking to build a shed 4.5' x 12', with the door on the 4.5' part rather than the long part like yours. I figure I can modify the plans to do so. Did you find the cement blocks used were sufficient? Where did you get your plans?

No problem man. These plans I got were pretty detailed, just found that they were short about 10 2x4's on it, unless there was something I did but I can't see. There were also a few minor spelling errors but overall it worked out. I originally used 5/8 inch osb board the blue stuff but realized vinyl siding was way too expensive to use. I wanted to match the house. I ended up covering the osb with oc2 which was cheap and was already primed.

I got the plans of of amazon, 12.00

I estmate is cost me 1000.00 cdn. I put asolar interior and exterior light on it.

good luckman, any questions, leave me amessage. the blocks were more than enough, dug some holes and used 1/2 inch stone, then tried to level the floor which we built first. once thats level you build up the walls.

nice shed, man . too bad your planning on taking it down. its design fits your yard perfectly.

instead of taking it down. how about building another next to it, join them.
or moving that one out, and building one next to it, mirror it.

Thanks man. I aint taking it down. It survived the winter well, no leaks. Only issue was I had some tenants over the winter, 4 of them. The instructions were pretty staight forward for 12.00 and for someone who has only built the spacemaker metal sheds.

I just need to to build alarger one in the back for the snowblower, lawnmowere tc. Im looking at a pre cut and then build next time.

Looks very slick man, nice job!

How did you manage to get the siding/etc attached in the back? Looks like you only have 5-6" of clearance?

In the winter, did you have any issue with snow build up between the house and shed?

I'd love to do something similar, unfortunately my house has windows at least every 2-3', there are no spans large enough to fit a shed, even a small one.

You did good! It looks really nice. Did you get any material over the osb on the back wall?
