Cart Shed Design
Does anyone have a cart shed design before I go and wing it? Trying to build a shed next to my garage for just the cart, and I could use some suggestions...

Re: Cart Shed Design
Do you want it attached or detached from the garage? A lean to design is the cheapest thing to build.

Yep... a lean to is not only cheaper, but easier to build!

Here's the one I built, 12' wide, X 10' deep (inside) for about $800 in materials,
(had 2 carts at the time, and needed winter storage for both of them!)
I leaned towards the back for a larger door opening, 7' high X 5' wide, (both lifted carts),
I wish I would have made the door opening just a bit wider, it worked well for me, but my ex had difficulties with it!

I "over built" it because of the nasty storms and "iffy" trees in the area,
and also wired it for lights and 110 outlets on all 4 walls,
so... your material expenses should be quite a bit cheaper!

Re: Cart Shed Design
Can't do a lean to..has to be stand alone....

Re: Cart Shed Design
The term "lean to" is the way the roof is built... it "leans" rather than "peaks"! :wink:

Uhm, well no :lol: A lean to is a reference to an add-on attached structure which leans on an existing structure, hence the term lean to.
A stand alone (detached) structure can have one of many roof configurations on it. The flat sloping roof is the simplest and most economical. It is termed a shed or flat roof. It must have some pitch(slope) to shed the rain. If you are in snow country then anticipated wet snow load may dictate a steeper pitch. I hope this helps.

I put up a 10x10 shed in the yard with a regular 8ft wide roll up garage door. I used a gable roof and utilized the top section as additional storage.

Re: Cart Shed Design
Like Lockman said. Make sure the door(s) are wide enough. When you do that, assuming one large opening, make sure the header above that opening is strong enough to support everything above it. Make that calculation before you determine ceiling height.
