Puttering shed

If your garage is jammed and there's no place to work indoors, try setting up shop in this 5x10-foot putter- perfect backyard shed.

The jumbo front door swings wide for easy access and features hanging space for tools. Clerestory windows under the eaves and a window next to the front door deliver natural light to the inside, where an L-shaped workbench gives you plenty of room to spread out for even the most involved projects. Wall-mounted storage bins and a tool rack gobble up clutter.

A separate, lockable end compartment keeps paints and gardening supplies safe from kids, and the 14x10-foot wraparound deck adds plenty of bonus space for bigger weekend fix-it projects.

You don't need fancy tools or professional carpentry skills to build this shed. The walls and roof are simple stud-frame construction sheathed with redwood-rustic lap siding (knot textured and air seasoned). The structure is mounted on a grade-level redwood deck that rests on 4x4 posts set into the ground.

This Better Homes and Gardens Puttering Shed Project Plan is an all-time favorite. The blueprint includes detailed drawings, a list of materials, construction tips, and complete step-by-step instructions.
