The 4x8 Lean To Shed Plan

If you have a homeowners association requirement for sheds that is 6 feet or less then this shed is for you. Many cities or homeowners associations have a 6 foot height requirement to keep the shed lower than the fence line.

Even if you do not have building restriction and just want a short shed to keep the costs down or just to keep it lower this shed plan will help.

The short shed has a single door that is 4 feet wide. The plans come with instructions to build the shed door on either the tall or short shed wall to help you configure your shed location.

4x8 Lean To Shed Plans Include The Following:

  • Materials List: The shed plans with a complete materials list that is broken down by parts of the shed.
  • 2 Foundations: The shed plans include plans for a concrete slab or treated wood on crushed gravel.
  • Floor: 2x6 treated floor joists with 3/4" treated floor sheathing.
  • Walls Framing: 2x4 framing at 16" on center with a double top plate, just like a home is framed.
  • Wall Height: The short wall height is 4'-2" and the taller wall is 4'-9 1/2"
  • Door: Home Built Door
    • Single Door Size - 3'-10 1/2" x 3'-10 1/2", door plans included
  • Siding: T-111 exterior siding. Other sidings such as vinyl or cement based sidings may be used.
  • Roof: The roof is framed using 2x4's to build the trusses. It is sheeted with 1/2" O.S.B. The plans give you the dimensions and cut angles so you can build the roof rafters on the ground and then put them up on the top plates.
  • Roof Pitch: 2/12, this means that for every 2 inches of rise there is 12 inches of run horizontally.
  • Roof Overhang: 3 inches on all sides of the shed.
  • Roofing: Asphalt roll roofing, approved for low slope applications.
  • Windows: No windows shown on the plans but the How To manual shows how to build window openings.
  • Trim: 1x4 masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners and door.
  • Floor Load: 50 pounds per square foot for framed floors. You don't want your shed floor to feel spongy.
  • Roof Snow Load: 40 pounds per square foot. This is more than adequate for most areas. If you live in an area with a high snow load you should check with your local building department for your local snow load. Contact us and we can specify stronger roof framing.
