Lean to shed plans are essential to the successful construction of your lean to shed. Even though the lean to shed looks very straightforward to build there are a number of key issues that will cost you big time in the long run if you do not keep them in mind when planning your lean to shed project.

Key 1-Available Space

Clearly the amount of space you have at your disposal is an important consideration if you intend building a storage shed.

For people who have limited space available should give thought to a lean to shed. A lean to shed will take up much less space than a normal 4 sided shed and if you have a very restricted or confined backyard then a lean to shed could be the most sensible option for you.

Key 2-Lean To Shed Plans

Any diy project has the potential to become a disaster if you do not plan ahead and give it a little thought. You will also be well advised to invest a small amount of money in a decent set of lean to shed plans and this is even more important with a lean to shed than a normal storage shed.

Why? Because a lean to shed tends to be smaller many people who embark on the project with an attitude of ‘well its only a lean to shed’ and start the job without any forethought.

So don't take it for granted. . give your project sufficient consideration and planning and your project will turn out fine.

Key 3- Materials-correct quantities and specifications

It is important that you have the right materials, at the right time in the right place. A good set of lean to shed plans will give you a bill of quantities which will ensure that you are not running out of timber, tools, screws, nails etc. at the most inappropriate time.

A good set of lean to shed plans will ensure that you know exactly how your project is to proceed, will tell you precisely the correct materials and quantities and ensure that your project goes smoothly from start to finish.
