Two Storey Shed

by Kerri

Hi, I am attempting to build an 8'x10' two storey shed which attaches to the side of my house for maximum storage.

Does anyone have any advice for me?

Thank You.

Two Storey Shed - Really?!?
by: GreenBoy

This is possible to do as discussed in the previous post - however you should consider the local building regulations first.

Here in the UK you cannot build a shed closed than 5m to the house and no taller than 4m (approx 13ft)

4m is actually tall enough to have two storeys - especially if the upper is considered a storage loft - where you would not regularly access the items stored there, and therefore didn't need to stand upright and move around too much.

How you access this space is another issue - given you are looking to build a smallish shed (due to lack of ground space?) a ladder put up to a hatch would be best as opposed to a permanent solution.

Otherwise as stated - good foundations, and possibly a fire wall would seem the order of the day.

This seems like a joke But start of with a good foundation-gravel etc. A poured pad would put the project in a whole new perspective.Check with the building code Inspector first as fines and penalties are costly.A firewall may be in order here.What I picture is an older farm house in the country and you wanting to get good economic storage.send the pics when completed as we all would love to see them.
