Designs for shed of the year 2010? – Free shed plans

if you are reading this as google found the words Free shed plans in the headline.. then welcome, otherwise you are a regular reader and clicked as you after a freebie plan to build a shed for next years competition?

The reason for this post is the lack of quality free(or open source) shed designs out there in the interwebs.

But someone who I read and follow is Michael Janzen from Tiny house design and he has put a selection of shedlike plans up for free on his excellent website.. including

5×8 Tiny Market House


This house is intended to be used as a display for artisans at crafts fairs. It could also be adapted for any micro business that needs a small portable building. It’s footprint might be too small to serve as a real tiny house but it might make a nice weekend camping trailer for one or two people.

and the wonderful

8×16 Tiny Solar House


This is a tiny house on a trailer designed to be lived in full-time. It’s designed to be built easily and at a low cost. The plans include a loft large enough for a queen size mattress, a bathroom complete with a shower and composting toilet. The main living are can be configured to the owner-builders needs.

This is what the community is all about… of course you can buy some of the reputable shed shop? (hint I make commission on each sale), but if you provide plans available to all, then let me know and I will feature them, and maybe the shed built will become shed of the year one year!
