The 8x10 Shed plans come in a downloadable file which comprises three separate documents:

Part 1 - The plans

10x8 shed plans

The plans comprise detailed drawings and component lists so you know and understand exactly what you are going to build, before you get started

  • Shed plans - Detailed plans eliminate any guess work and enable you to see each part of the shed you are going to build in detail.
  • Material lists - A set of plans is great but you need a list of all the parts so that you can go out and buy them. Having a list of the material that you need can save you the cost of these plans alone when you are shopping around the builders merchants.

  • Illustrated construction sequence - What is the right order to build your shed in? Of course it's best to start at the bottom and work up.

  • Construction details - OK, you have cut all the components but how do they fit together? How does one panel sit in relation to another? Three dimensional details are included for each stage of construction that don't leave anything to the imagination.

The material list gives you details of the types of fixings and lengths and how many you need to buy. When it comes to construction the plans show you which fixings go where, what size, how many and at what spacing. You need this information so that the connection is not too weak or too strong.
