12x16 gable storage shed


Shed overview


The 12’x16’ Oxbow Storage Shed provides 192 sq. ft. of workable floor space, and the gable roof design adds more ceiling height, which can be used for a variety of overhead storage items like lumber, piping, conduit, and yard tools. The shed uses high-grade construction materials such as asphalt shingles, plywood, wood siding and pressure-treated studs for the framing components. Two louvered vents in both gabled ends, provide fresh air flow even when the doors are closed. The Oxbow is a multifunctional shed that has unearthed potential for a wide variety of storage solutions and uses. It can be easily converted into a tiny home or roadside store. The gable roof is strong enough to support solar panels that can supply electrical service to the structure, which makes this perfect for areas that are off the grid. Furthermore, the Oxbow is a durable shed that comes with low-maintenance and price tag within most people’s budget.

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.
