I am thinking of building a storage shed in the back yard. Anyone have any good plans or ideas for a good storage shed? I am looking at approximatley an 8 X 12 size building.

i've built a ton over the years with the barn-type roof and roll-up door. the roll-up door is awesome compared to regular swing doors. Trac-Rite is the brand we use and they come in different sizes and shapes. I dont really have any plans, but to give you an idea, we put ours on 4x6 skids on edge, 2x6 laid flat every 16" OC then 5/8" plywood over that for the floor. Build the sidewalls, place the trusses then frame in the endwalls, sheath, side, and put in door.

Windows are nice for light if you arent going to run electricity to it, but then people can see into it. A company makes clear louvered roof vents that let light in also, and vent the roof.

Hope that gave you some sort of idea.
