The design of the attache shed is straight forward, as you don’t need to build a complex and costly foundation. Select the lumber with great care and attention, if you want to obtain a professional result. Building a lean to shed is not difficult, if you use the right carpentry techniques and woodworking plans. Smart Tip: Before starting the actual construction process, you have to design the shed as to fit your needs and tastes perfectly. Smart Tip: In order to obtain a rigid structure, use joist hangers to secure the joists to the rim joists. The next step of the project is to build the wall frames on the ground and to install them into position, in a professional manner. Plumb the frame with a spirit level, lock it into place with several braces and drive in 3” screws trough the bottom plate in the wooden joists. Afterwards, you have to build the back wall of the lean to shed and to install it on the flooring, in the same way described above. Cover the roof of the lean-to shed with roofing felt, before installing the asphalt shingles, starting with the bottom of the roof.
Building the door for the shed is a straight forward job, if you use the right carpentry techniques and plans.


Thank you for reading our article about how to build a lean-to shed and we recommend you to check out the rest of our projects.
If you want to enhance the storage space and you don’t pay attention to exquisite design, a lean to shed is the solution to your needs. Using a pair of 4×4 skids is enough to support the weight of the construction, if you attach it to another building.
This simple shape has many advantages, as it provides a significant storage space, while keeping the expenditures at a low level. Work with great care and with good judgement, if you want to save money and obtain a professional result. As you can see in the image, you have to cut the top of the wall studs at 17.5?, in order to obtain a proper slope for the roof.
Secure the wall frame to the floor, by inserting 3” wood screws trough the bottom plate in the joists.
Build the wall frames on a sturdy surface, making sure you assemble the structures properly.
Use a good saw with a sharp blade to make the cuts, otherwise you might tear the edges of the siding. In order to get the job done properly, we recommend you to attach first 1×4 trims to the edges of the roof.


Therefore, fill the gaps with a good sealer and protect the lumber from rot, by applying several coats of waterproof paint or wood stain. Don’t forget to share our projects with your friends and LIKE us, by using the social media widgets, if you want to be the first that gets our latest articles and to help us create more free plans. In addition, if you don’t have a large backyard or you want to keep costs under control, you could attach the shed to an existing building, such as your house or a garage.
On the other hand, if you want to build a free-standing construction, you need to use several concrete piers or pour several concrete footings. Insert 3” screws trough the bottom and top plates directly into the wall studs, after pre-drilling several holes.
This project can be done in just an weekend  by any person with basic woodworking skills, if the right plans are used.
