14x16 lean to garden shed

Shed overview


The 14’x16’ Spade Shed provides 224 square feet of interior floor space and lots of options for storage applications. The almost 9-foot ceiling offers plenty of headroom, and the roof is designed with 2×6 pressure treated lumber which is strong enough for building additional hangers for lightweight overhead storage. The pitch of the roof is just right for water drainage, and the gutter system adds protection over the entry doors as well as erosion prevention by displacing the water at the ends. The left and right walls utilize the space for custom built windows that swing open for fresh air flow and add exterior aesthetics to the shed. Exterior custom-built shutters put the finishing touches on the two windows, entry doors and provide an elegant look. The access ramp is perfect for driving machinery into the shed, and the shed offers lots of room for shelving or even a workbench.

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.
