If you are looking for shed plans then you have come to the right place. I really enjoy my garden and growing my own veggies. My backyard is my kingdom, my domain if you like, so anything that can help me get the most out of my backyard interests me. This started my own search. I have built my own house but I hadn’t built a shed before. So I did heaps of research and found a good starting point for ideas and plans to get going.

In my search I came across this product - My Shed Plans. Once I got hold of it and delved into it I decided to create an honest review for others so they can get the facts and decide if this is a good starting point for them too. In the following review I start with my thoughts in a nutshell, then, for those who need the detail, there is a thorough review giving you the lowdown, and the ins and outs of this package. I hope it helps you.

There are step-by-step directions that even a newbie can work through. My Shed Plans claims there are over 12,000 shed plans and woodworking project blueprints available for you to choose from. There are a couple of negatives, but overall it looks like a solid value for money package.

For those of you who want more detail about My Shed Plans…read on:

Ryan Henderson the author of My Shed Plans has been building wooden sheds for 20 years and realizes first hand the sort of mistakes you can make by getting simple things wrong. Things that can cost you a lot of time and money. For 5 years he collected over 12,000 woodworking project plans, blueprints and step by step guides including hundreds of shed plans.

One of the most time consuming aspects of any woodworking project, especially in building a shed is creating your own shed plans, your project plan and material lists.  The choice between DIY and getting a ready built shed is easy. By choosing to do it yourself you will save money and get the satisfaction of building a shed of your own.

Shed Plans And Designs Of Every Type To Suit Your Needs

If you want a wooden shed there are shed plans and shed designs for them. Whether you want a garden shed, storage shed, a tool shed, a potting shed, an outdoor shed, a firewood shed, or any type of backyard shed really.

There are shed plans and shed designs for every type of shed you could think of from the typical gable roof shed, the gambrel roof or barn style shed, the saltbox roof shed, and the lean to roof shed are included. Sizes, well everything from 6×12, 8×8, 8×10, 10×12, 12×16, from smaller sheds to large shed plans.

There is something about a wooden shed. I don’t know about you but for me there is something about the smell and feel of working with a nice piece of timber. You may even want your shed as your private work space or your own woodworking workshop. Having your own shed is something special.

Here is a video of a shed being built to give you an idea of what is involved. It looks like lots of fun and looks like a pretty cool shed too:

I hope you enjoyed the video. With the music it made me laugh. It was good to see a shed come together as well. Anyhow you get the picture.

Here Are Some More Things I Found On The Inside

Let’s take a peak at some of the things included:

  • Shed buying guide
  • Shed foundations
  • Shed framing
  • Garden shed plans
  • Storage shed plans
  • Wood shed plans
  • Garage plans
  • Barn plans
  • Dog kennel plans
  • Everything BBQ
  • Plans for stairs
  • Fences and much more…

Let’s take a look into the positives and negatives I found…

The Negatives

  • The package could be organized a bit better on the inside. There is so much there you need to download it all then sort through to get what you want. There are literally over hundreds of shed plans to go through.
  • Some of the plans are a bit rough so they may need more work. Although when coupled with the how to guides you can pull together everything you need.
  • Two of the downloads are almost a repeat of each other. One includes 220 different woodworking projects and the next download seems to be the same thing except it has links to many outside resources for many other projects you could access. It just seemed a bit cumbersome.
  • Also, there is a 3D plan viewer that you will need to upgrade to be able to use properly.

The Good Stuff

  • For starters there are hundreds of shed plans and shed designs to go through and choose from plus guides for everything from roofing, foundations, windows, doors and everything you need to build from a simple shed to a house.
  • There are many plans with detailed drawings, materials lists and step by step guides to work through.
  • The package is a great place to gets lots of ideas to help you decide on the type of shed you really want that suits your yard, location and needs.
  • You will save an enormous amount of time and money developing plans for sure. Even if you take a set of these plans to get a professional to draw up a final set of plans for approval.
  • If woodworking and building is new to you will will have plenty to guide you. There are stacks of well written guides. When I built my house I was lucky having two brother in laws who were builders and carpenters to guide me especially with the timber frames, roofing and foundations. Even with some experience these guides are really handy.
  • I liked to fact the package is so economical. It is good value for money.
  • Finally, the package includes a full 60 day money back guarantee. Your payment is all handled through Clickbank which has a really great reputation.

You Can Try Before You Buy

When you go to My Shed Plans you have the opportunity firstly to sign up for a free woodworking course and get free shed plans for a storage shed including the plans, illustrations and materials lists for a 12×8 shed. This allows you to get an idea of what is included in the full package. A first hand experience. There are loads of testimonials and a comprehensive list of everything included in the package.

My Shed Plans Package Includes 4 Bonuses

You’ll be able to turn your hand to just about anything with the right plans at your fingertips. There are literally hundreds of shed designs and plans to pick from, and thousands of woodworking project blueprints too. There are 4 great bonuses including detailed how to guides on every aspect of building a shed. You even get a woodworking resource on “all the most valuable secrets, tips, tricks, tools and techniques written on woodworking” according to Ryan Henderson.

What Happens Once You Purchase The Package

As soon as you purchase the My Shed Plans package it is available immediately for you to download straight onto your computer. There are simple to follow directions just in case you have not downloaded anything from the web before. Then you can get to work choosing your plan immediately.

Because you are getting all this as a digital download the package costs less because there are no shipping charges. If you really want a physical CD instead you can certainly get that too, it just costs a bit more and it’ll be sent to you by mail.

Overall To Sum Up

All I can say is decide for yourself.  Check it out. I think the package is good value for money and an excellent place to start. Obviously once you purchase the product, you pick your plan, map out your supplies and the location for your shed – then you can get on with building your shed.

Good luck. I hope this has helped you.

Shed Plans – How To Build A Shed In 10 Easy Steps http://www.shedplansandsheds.com/shed-plans-10-steps-to-build-a-shed/ http://www.shedplansandsheds.com/shed-plans-10-steps-to-build-a-shed/#comments Mon, 04 Apr 2011 04:50:13 +0000 http://www.shedplansandsheds.com/?p=23 shed plansHere is an overview of how to build a shed in 10 easy steps.

It is a great decision if you have decided to build your own shed. Besides saving money, you will have a great time doing it and the satisfaction of knowing you built it.

Even if you have never done something like this before with the right shed designs, shed plans, blueprints, illustrations and step by step guidance you will find it much easier than you might have thought possible.

Plus, you have the opportunity of avoiding all of the classic mistakes that most people make, let alone the not so known ones, and you get to tap into the knowledge of seasoned woodworkers.

Otherwise, enjoy the overview and then click through to find out where you can get everything you need to build your shed.

Here are 10 easy steps to build a shed for you:

Step One
It is time to think where you want the shed to go. What sort of space do you have? Measure it out so you know what size shed you are going to build.

Step two
Time to get out your skectch pad and rough sketch what you want. You could then take your sketch to your local home improvement store or building suppliers who might help you. They will draft up your shed plans according to the specs you provide them with. Obviously, they can supply you with a list of materials that you will require. So now you have your plans.

Step Three
Once you start building your shed you want to have all your materials on hand. Your plan should outline all the materials you will need.  Your home improvement store or building supplier will help you with the purchase and delivery of all your materials.

Step Four
Time to start. Like all good buildings it starts with laying the foundation. Are you going to have a wood plank floor or a concrete slab. You will need to prepare for either choice.

Step Five
Next comes the side walls. Put your materials aside that you are going to use for this. It is better to construct the walls on the ground then lift them into position once they are together. Follow your guide for the how to instructions.

Step Six
Now its time to start the roof. You will need to build your trusses or you might purchase them ready made. For the roof itself you might get wooden shingles or tin. If you are making the trusses, construct one and then use it as a template for the rest. Once again  follow your guide on how to build the trusses.

Step Seven
Your storage shed should now be taking on some shape. Its time to build the end walls. How you do this will depend on what you have chosen in your plans. Be sure to stay with your original plans.

Step Eight
Now you are getting down to the final steps. The trim is just as important as the rest of your structure. Its what gives it that finished look so don’t scrimp here.

Step Nine
Your last two steps includes putting on the roof and treating the wood. The wood must have some type of protective coating on it to protect it from weather. You might be using paint, a stain or a varnish.

Step Ten
You’ve done it. You have built your own shed from your shed plans. Time to enjoy your shed. Step back and admire your achievement and handy work!

It is even better if you can get a set of free shed plans, right?

Whether it is a gardening shed, tool shed, or a storage shed even a seasoned builder will need plans. If you are unfamiliar with plans or blueprints that is ok. These plans are really simple to follow with step by step instructions giving you everything you need to know on how to build a shed.

So, why would we offer you free shed plans?

So, where would you find these free shed plans?

For starters you could go to your local home improvement store. Some of them have some great options. They usually have some basic plans for you to pick from. They will give some of these for free. Obviously, they would like you to buy the materials from them too.

Otherwise create a sketch of what you are looking for. You can take it to the improvement store or find someone to draft it into a plan for you. Sometimes a building supplier will draft up plans for you on the basis that you will purchase your supplies from them.

On the internet

Then there is always the internet. Lots of sites are willing to give away plans for free. One such example is My Shed Plans that offers you a free shed plan. Not because they are generous, but because they hope it will entice you to purchase their shed plans package. (By the way it is the best value for money package in which you get over 12,000 shed plans, designs and woodworking blueprints, tips, tricks and step by step how to guides, you get it all for less than the cost of most individual books).

There are easier ways

Creating your plans is often one of the most time consuming aspects of building a shed. You could try some of the many self help books available put your own plans together. Although the package from My Shed Plans costs less than most of even one of these books let alone the cost of paying someone to draw up just one set of plans.

You get the picture. 12,000 plans versus one set…and you get a free plan upfront. It is a no brainer really. Make sure you click on the link below the video and get your free shed plan.
