12x16 lean to garden shed

Shed overview


The 12’x16’ Moss Garden Shed offers a spacious 192 sq. ft. of floor space with an 8 ft. ceiling and plenty of storage options. The back wall is the perfect place for a variety of shelving or even a great place to build a workbench. There’s plenty of room for pegboards, hooks for garden tools, lawn equipment, and recreational vehicles. The shed utilizes the left and right walls for custom-built windows that allow for fresh air circulation. The shed is engineered to be solid and has years of durability in any weather climate. Asphalt shingles provide protection against leakage, and the gutter system is designed to drain the water to the ends of the shed, eliminating heavy water flow over the access doors. The shed can be painted in any color.

FAQs & Answers


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. Can I use my garden shed as a roadside store?

A: The Garden Shed is the ultimate building for a roadside store for fresh garden produce, eggs, fruits, flowers or other specialty crafts. The double doors provide plenty of room for customers to go in and out while the interior is spacious enough for a variety of wall shelving to display your goods for sale.

5. Can I install electricity in my garden shed?

A: Yes, you can install electricity in your garden shed. You can run underground electrical wire in PVC pipe from the main breaker box in the house to your garden shed. You can also use a gas-powered generator for temporary power when you need it.
