8x10 gable storage shed


Shed overview


The 8’x10’ Outback Storage Shed is a very solid and secure structure. It provides 80 sq. ft. of floor space and the walls offer lots of options for hooks, hangers, standing closets, and shelving applications. The shed is framed with pressure-treated lumber; therefore, it has superior structural strength and longevity. The double-vented gable ends provide fresh airflow and lowers condensation. The Outback is easy to build and can be placed in any suitable location. It’s built on a solid foundation of mortared-brick and concrete, and the gable roof design sheds water while its increased strength supports more snow. The shed can easily accommodate a riding lawnmower and a variety of small outdoor equipment. The windowless design is perfect for keeping its content private and secure. The Outback can be painted or stained in any color, and the asphalt shingles can also be installed in a variety of colors and textures.

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. 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.
