Popular Mechanics Shed Nation

This is the ultimate handbook for every homeowner who wants to design, build & customise the perfect shed.

192 pages

With hardworking advice from Popular Mechanics on designing, building and customising a shed for any back yard, this is the ultimate inspirational handbook for every homeowner. There are innovative plans for building several sheds, each with a different practical use, as well as contributions from Popular Mechanics readers who share their own designs. 

For additional motivation, beautiful photographs present a wide variety of sheds, from tree houses to eco-friendly buildings

The sheds that you can build include:

  • Small Is Beautiful:

A 6’ x 8’ shed with solid framing, plywood sheathing, and cedar siding. It’s big enough to hold a variety of tools, but won’t dominate the backyard.

  • The Groundskeeper:

This 9’ x 13’ shed with a spacious layout and a crisp, no-frills design is ideal for the beginning DIYer.

  • The Big Red Shed:

This handsome shed is a multi-purposer’s dream; a 10’ x 12’ tool shed combined with an 8’ x 10’ open bay that’s great for firewood or tractors.

  •  Classic Colonial:

A stylish, multipurpose garden shed with decorative trim and architectural accents. Includes a 12’ x 12’ general storage space, 4’ x 12’ potting area, and a small loft for seasonal storage.

  • The Greenhouse:

Complete instructions on purchasing a kit greenhouse in a variety of sizes (7’ x 9’, 8’ x 16’, or larger) allows for a big-league growing season.
