We have the internets largest collection of 6x8 shed plans. You can choose from simple 6x8 lean to shed plans, 6x8 modern shed plans, 6x8 greenhouse plans or the basic gable end 6x8 storage shed. Each shed design comes with a materials list to help you plan your project and keep the shed building costs where you need them to be. They also include alternate foundation plans in case you need to build the shed on another foundation type like concrete slab or concrete pier.
There are several options to choose from in the 6x8 shed size. Each style has its own unique benefits. Our large selection of plans is designed to help you find the perfect shed to fit your storage or work area needs.
6x8 Lean To Shed Plans: The lean to design is the easiest style to build because the roof framing is a simple single span board. We have several different height sizes. The short wall plan will allow you to build a lean to shed that has a roof height lower than 8 feet high which helps if you live in an area that has height restrictions on storage buildings. The regular lean to design has higher walls which allows you to put the shed doors on any of the 4 walls. This helps to orient the shed for your specific needs.
6x8 Greenhouse Shed Plans: Our greenhouse design is the perfect when you need a small space to start your plants and store your gardening tools and materials. It has windows on three of the walls and a full lite door. It is also designed to be used with translucent corrugated panels to let in even more sunlight. On the interior it has a workbench that goes down both of the long walls and across the far end of the shed to give you plenty of space to set plants next to the windows.
6x8 Gable Shed Plans: The most common design in our plan library is the gable roof design. It uses a simple rafter and gusset design to build the rafters. Our Short design allows you to build the shed to a height of less than 8 feet if you need to meet a shorter height requirement.
6x8 Modern Shed Plans: This plan works perfect for a small studio shed or office. It is designed to give you just enough work space or private office in your back yard to have a workbench or desk and chair. The contemporary shed design can be finished to rival first class office space while allowing you to keep your commute to under a minute or two. So if you are looking for a more modern shed design this is your answer.
Our 6x8 shed designs have 5 different foundation shed styles. These include:
Wood Rail Foundation: The wood rail foundation is the simplest way to build a shed foundation. It consists of two pressure treated wood rails set on a leveled bed of crushed gravel. The gravel is used to help easily level the ground and keep the weeds and pests down.
Concrete Slab Foundation: Using concrete is a more permenant way to build the shed floor and foundation. Our design uses a monolithic slab and footing which means that the floor and footing around the perimeter are poured at the same time. The cost of a concrete floor is typically a little bit more than a wood framed floor and foundation. Check locally to verify cost comparison.
Concrete Piers: Piers work well for sites that slope. One side of the shed can be higher off the ground than the other when the piers are used. There are three types of concrete pier foundation plans, the precast, poured and CMU Block.Pre-cast piers are pre poured and set on site where you will build the shed. There is typically one pier per floor joist. Poured piers are made by pouring concrete in forms. A Beam spans from pier to pier and the floor joist system hangs on or sits on top of the beams. CMU Block Piers are made by stacking pre-cast concrete blocks to hold the floor framing system.
Before you start building there are several questions that need to be answered as part of your planning process. Some of the more important questions areHow big of a shed do you need ot build? What style of shed will best suit your needs? What will the cost of the shed be? Where on the property will the shed be built? How will the shed be oriented so the traffic that goes to the shed and around the shed will flow well with the other elements in your yard or garden? Are there any building requirements that need to be met to satisfy the city or county building codes for building a 6x8 shed size?
