Shed Design Plans

Front Porch, Small Cabin, and
Garage Plans with Porches!

Mary and I were excited to find these shed design plans. Not only that, but we also found easy to build small cabin plans. Some of them even have porches! One of these might be just perfect for your next project.



If you spend a lot of time outdoors like we do, at some point you've probably discovered you could really benefit from having a storage shed or small cabin.

In fact, some storage sheds are large enough to become a garage for a car!

Sometimes a traditional storage shed doesn't really meet your needs. Maybe you simply need a little more room - perhaps for a home office, a craft/hobby room, mini gym, or a hangout for the kids.

I plan on building a shed for my new wood shop - complete with a front porch too.



Shed Design Plans: Build Your Own Shed

Your first thought is probably that you have to buy a pre-built storage shed - the kind you find in the parking lots of those big box home improvement stores.

But if you are handy around the house, consider building your own. Mary and I found some shed design plans that come in many styles.

Not sure how to build a shed? No worries! The shed plans, easy to build cabin plans, and bunk house plans we found come with helpful video instructions so you can see exactly how to do it, from building the roof, walls, flooring, and more.

Why build your own?

For the pure satisfaction, of course, but more importantly you can choose the colors, the accessories (e.g., shutters, planters, etc.), the quality of wood, and whether or not to upgrade. When you work from a set of plans, you can build something suited for you and your family.

Saving money is a nice benefit of building your own shed, too. The money you save might buy you something to put inside your new shed.

Small Cabins

One of the latest trends now takes the traditional storage shed and adds a twist. By simply changing a few things and increasing the size, the basic storage shed can transform into a small cabin or "bunk" house (or even a man or woman cave if that's your goal).

See the short video below.

A small cabin expands your reach into nature - offering outdoor lovers a comfortable refuge.

Just as with shed design plans, the small cabin and bunkhouse plans we found will be perfect. There are many easy-to-build cabin plans for the do-it-yourselfer, which eliminates the time and money required to hire a professional contractor!

Bunk Houses

Bunk houses, while similar to small cabins, are very popular with those who hunt, fish, or just get away from it all. These small abodes are a few steps above roughing it in a tent. These plans provide an escape from the elements coupled with the conveniences of home.

As with storage sheds and small cabins, there is a large selection of bunk house plans available, many with front porches, as they become a very popular alternative to the traditional small cabin.

If you are wanting to create your own space in your backyard or out in nature, take a look at these storage sheds, small cabins, or bunk house plans.

These shed design plans that Mary and I found have easy to follow instructions and helpful videos to help you every step of the way.
