12x16 lean to storage shed

Shed overview


The 12’x16’ Botan Storage Shed provides plenty of headroom with a 9-foot ceiling, and just as impressive is the 192 square feet of floor space. Everything from riding lawn mowers to 4-wheelers and snowmobiles can be easily driven into the shed using the provided access ramp and 5’x6’ open entry doors. There’s also lots of room for smaller machinery like push mowers, rototillers, chainsaws, weed eaters, and portable generators. The louvered vent provides fresh air flow and an exhaust outlet for running a portable generator for lights and power tools or propane and kerosene heaters in cold weather conditions. The interior wall space also offers a lot of options for storage racks, shelving or accessories for hanging garden tools.

1. Do I need a permit?

A: In most local townships and municipalities, if a shed is less than 100sqft, you do not need a permit. For sheds more than 100sqft, it’s always best to go to your local town office and inquire about a building permit. 

2. How much it would cost me to build?

A: According to most building cost estimator programs, the average cost for materials to build a shed is about $22.85 per square foot. For example, an 8’x10’ shed equals 80sqft x $22.85 = $1,828.00.  

3. How much time will I need to build it?

A: The size of the shed plays a role in how long it will take to build it. An average 8’x10’ shed can be built in 3 to 4 days from start to finish.  

4. Do I need expensive tools or large equipment?

A: You do not need expensive tools, a typical miter and table saw will work just fine. You will also need basic hand tools, corded drill or cordless screw gun, standard 7 1/4’ skill saw, and a variety of garden tools for the foundation. 

5. Can I move my shed to another location?

A: You can move your shed to another location; however, a new foundation will need to be installed. Additionally, interior bracing, heavy-duty straps, and a small crane or front-end loader may be required to safely lift the structure to put it on a trailer or move it to another location on the property.
