General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

Frame you your back walls. You can use the Kreg Jig or 2 1/2″ screws here.

Step 2

Starting at the bottom and working upward, attach the cedar fence pickets, overlapping 1/2″ as you go up. Screw or nail and glue on.

Step 3

Frame side walls as shown in diagram as you did the back wall. You will need two side walls.

Step 4

And add the cedar siding to back wall as shown in diagram. Do not forget that the sides need to be done in mirror!

Step 5

Trim out side walls as show above, flush to inside.

Step 6

Once your side walls are complete, you can attach back walls. Use 2 1/2″ screws or brackets for easy disassembly.

Step 7

Add header to front of shed. Take a minute here to make sure your project is square. The door area especially needs to be square.

Step 8

Frame up roof as shown above.

Step 9

And attach roof to top of storage shed.

Step 10

Add plywood and roofing to top of shed.

Step 11

Frame doors up with pocket holes. Build doors to fit your openings. I like to leave 1/8″ gaps.

Step 12

Attach cedar fence pickets to back of doors.

Step 13

And then install doors to shed.

Step 14

Add stop block to keep doors closed.

Step 15

Don’t forget the pretty hardware!

Finishing Instructions

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
