I started this project as anyone should, with a proper plan. I realized i needed a workshop shed after I saw how many projects I had stacking up. I started my design as a small shed of 6×10 but thought that would be to small. I changed the design to be 8×8. This helped with adding more space for movement inside the shed as well as helped with not having to rip plywood boards too much. I used Sketchup to make my plan. Designing the shed on Sketchup took about a week and a half.

Good design, should be relatively easy to build.

8×8 is a good start, everything you need, material wise, should work out well to be little waste.
