Making a garden shed

+15
Answered
I am so frustrated!!! I love this garden shed made out out of doors and have zero experience with DIY and I can not locate a understandable site that will provide written instruction with list of supplies. Can someone give me simple instructions? No such thing as a stupid question (right)!

    It looks to me like they used 4 4x4's as a framework attached to a floor of 2x2's or 4x4's (treated to resist rotting) and secured the doors onto them from the outside. The front one is attached via hinges. The roof looks like it is supported on a framework of 2x2's attached to the outside of the doors with a front and probably the back shallow 'A' shaped piece of timber to form a shallow A shaped roof. There would probably be a cross piece between the two 'A's for stabilizing the roof. A choice of roof could include colorbond, galvanized iron, or tiles left over from some other building project. Hope this helps. (I intend to give it a go!) Hope it doesn't lead you astray!

      Thanks I will "watch" for it. No rush I will be leaving on a "real" vacation that took me 3 years to save for.

    When I first saw the picture, I thought it was an old British telephone booth. Love the look of it. . . . . You said, "Can someone give me simple instructions?". Instructions for what? What is problem or question that you want answered. Your post is confusing. Isn't this your shed? Do you want people to give you directions on how to build one from the single picture you posted? Please clarify.

      Yes Jackie need instruction on how to build otherwise I would be bragging of my accomplishment. Which many people apparently have built and I applaud them all.

    Yesterday I posted 3 links to sites that had the directions and a video on how to make this. I guess the editors didn't post it. Just Google for the "instructions for garden shed with 4 doors" and different variations and you'll find it.
