The 8x12 salt box shed plans include:
Multiple Door Options - Large 5' x 6' home built double doors on the front or an optional 4'x6' end door.
Saltbox Design - Besides being a classic New England architectural style it is another shed that is the perfect way to build a shed up against a fence. The saltbox shed is defined by its double roof slope. The front roof pitch is 12/12 and the rear roof pitch is 5/12.
