The 3x12 storage shed plans include:
6'-5" wall height - This is the most cost effective wall height because it saves on material and allows the home built shed door to be on the front or back walls.
Home Built Doors - Two door options come with the plans: 5'-8" wide home built double doors or two single 4' wide doors .
Foundation = 4 different fo9undations are included in the plans; Wood skid, Concrete slab, Concrete Pier, Pre-cast pier.
Floor = 2x6 floor joists with 3/4" floor sheathing.
Walls = 2x4 framing at 16" on center with a double top plate, just like a home is framed. The shed wall height is 6'-5" for the short wall and 7'-8" for the taller wall. This wall height keeps costs down and construction simple by allowing single pieces of 4x8 siding to be used along the exterior walls.
Door = The double 2'-9" x 5'-9" doors are built using sandwich construction for strength and durability. It has 2 doors to help you get better access to the things you have stored.
Roof = The roof is framed using 2x4's to build rafter trusses. It is sheeted with 1/2" O.S.B. (or 5/8 if you want to make it extra strong.)
Roofing = 25 year asphalt shingles
Siding = T1-11 siding or similar 4'x8' wood or cement panel siding is specified but you can use any siding you like.
Trim = 1x3 and 1x6 wood, masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners, roof eves and fascia, and door.
