DIY Garden Shed

DIY Garden Shed


We found the ultimate garden shed! Lots of storage space, great natural light, big doors! We think you’ll agree that it’s hard to beat.

DIY Garden Shed

This shed is designed to resemble the classic American chicken coop. Its walls are made with OSB, which is cheaper than plywood. Tarpaper is used to protect the walls, as well as the roof, during winter. Green shingles complement the color of the shed.

With its simple architectural design, this garden shed provides a spacious room that welcomes natural light and air. It’s also versatile and can be used in a variety of ways.

It’s spacious enough that you can use it as a workshop. There’s a lot of space for your gardening and building tools. You can also use it for relaxation, and turn it into a garden room. Perfect for a quiet afternoon while reading a book and sipping your favorite beverage.
