Larger shed than video?

Post by bylandorriver » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:54 am

Hey there! I am looking to finish my basement. As a result, I need to get some stuff out of there to make room (a good amount of tools, misc, and camping). I need an outdoor shed anyways, so was thinking about building a shed like the 6x8 in your video, but I need more room, like 10x10 or 12x12. Could I use the same construction, but just make it bigger? Would I have to switch to 2x6s for the foundations (still have 4x4s about 3 feet apart underneath)?

Thanks so much!

You could really use the same materials.
The floor could still be 2x4 so long as the 4x4 s are no more then 4' apart , unless you plan on parking a motor cycle , lawn tractor or something heavier like that. in that case keep the 4x4s no more that 3' apart .

I am building 10 x 12 Shed running 3 4x4 under the 2x4 floor joists with 4x4 at the outside ends of the 10 ft side and one 4x4 in the center point which is 5 ft.

You should be ok. If you can slide the outside ones in a foot I would but not likey to be a huge issue if you can’t
