6x8 gable storage shed


Shed overview


The 6’x8’ Yardman Storage Shed is a gable roof design built on a solid foundation. It provides 48 sq. ft. of floor space with lots of options for storage solutions and functions. The interior wall space can be outfitted with a variety of shelving applications, utility closets, pegboards, and tool hangers. The shed is framed with pressure-treated lumber which ensures longevity and solid construction. A plywood sub-floor and roof coupled with wood siding makes this a shed a one-time investment. The Yardman can make space in basements and garages or be used to store outdoor equipment like lawnmowers, chainsaws, rototillers, etc. The vented gable ends, ensure adequate fresh airflow and exhaust for gas-powered engines or containers of fuel. This shed also makes a great woodshed for keeping seasoned hardwood dry and ready at a moment’s notice. All of the construction materials for the Yardman can be purchased at any home improvement store.

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.
