The 8x18 shed plans include:

  • 7'-7" wall height - The lower wall height is 7'-7" which allows a pre-hung factory built door to go on any wall and reduces the amount of siding and labor needed to build the shed.
  • Factory or Home Built Doors - Using a pre hung door makes the door building and hanging job much easier. The shed plans also include door plans if you prefer to build your own doors.
  • Multiple Door Options - Drawings explaining how to build the door on the end or sides of the shed.
