Easy DIY Garden Shed Plans
Almost all of us need a little place to store outdoor stuff, and building a shed is one of the best ways to create additional storage space. Our garden shed plans are simple and require only basic carpentry skills. These plans will help you build a basic shed, but don't stop there! To customize your shed, you could create a combination toolshed and greenhouse, put a martin house on top, or use part of the shed for a chicken coop or rabbit hutch.
