Backyard Storage Shed

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to this software and use Home Designer Architectural 2018.  I would like to design an 8x12 two story backyard shed and then use the materials list to get a quote and then build it myself.  The floor would be plywood, the first floor would be 7 or 8 feet tall and the second floor would be 4 feet tall with a steep pitch roof and dormers.  Is there a plan already built that I could use as a reference?  Any other suggestions to help me design it would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I see you said Architectural 2018.

 

 

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

No already built plan that I know of.

 

There are some good hour long webinars on the Chief YouTube channel linked above that go over a start to finish project, and there is a tutorial linked via the Help menu.

Very simple to do, just build the first floor to 7 or 8 ft. change the floor surface to plywood.

 

Click Build > Floor> Build New floor  change the ceiling height to 48" and set the wall pitches to what you want.
