      There are many basic designs on line. We took a basic shed design that was 8x10 feet and enlarged it to a 10x12 feet. We added a window. The design had double swinging doors, we opted for 1 glass facing to give more of a cottage look. To have more floor space, shelves were added to the roof line for much needed storage. Good Luck, Ana
