Saltbox Shed Blueprints

Imagine for a moment what your property might look like without all the "stuff" that is lying around and cluttering it up. A Saltbox shed could be exactly what you need to "clean up your act!" Saltbox sheds get their name from structures prevalent in the New England area during America's colonial years. They are very unique structures that can add style and functionality to your backyard. These sheds can be a challenge to build, but are within the capabilities of most do-it-yourselfers. The fail safe way to approach such a project is to use a good set of saltbox shed blueprints.

Saltbox sheds are characterized by a distinctive roof design that provides increased storage capability on a small footprint. These sheds are very versatile, especially when equipped with double doors in the front. They can even be used for storing large outdoor equipment items such as boats, four wheelers, snow mobiles, and lawn tractors.

Actually, the front of the building is two stories which then slopes back to a single story. The roof is short in front as well as steeply angled, and long and gently sloping in the back. The overall square footage of the shed is enhanced by the elevated storage area up front, which allows you to build in a smaller space.

The nature of the unique roof requires some unusual and complex cuts that will be difficult to figure out by yourself. Keep in mind that the primary factor that will add cost to virtually any building project is inaccurate measuring and cutting. The secret to your success--a good set of saltbox shed blueprints.

A professionally done set of saltbox shed blueprints will prove invaluable and will ensure that you get the cuts done correctly and with minimum fuss. They will also save you trips to the hardware store and lumber yard because they come with a complete materials list.
