Mini Cedar Storage Shed

Submitted by jakevdp on Sun, 06/09/2013 - 23:10

I loved the idea of re-purposing fence pickets as siding for a cedar shed, but the plans on the website were much too big for the space I have. I ended up modifying the design to make a smaller shed, with approximately a 4 foot by 2 foot footprint. It turned out beautifully! Cedar is expensive, but I was able to save money on the project by buying much of the material at local salvage and second-hand stores.

This is exactly the size I want - did it take much to modify the plans to be smaller like this ?

My mom just asked me about building her a garden shed in a small area. This looks perfect for what she is looking for. I'll have to show her this. Great job!

I'd also love to know what modifications you made to create the mini version. Did you just take out one of the sections of the back frame and adjust the side widths? Thanks!
