Default 12X16 Shed plans

Hi all, can anyone tell me where I can find plans/material list for a 12X16 shed? I can find plans on google, but none of then have a complete list of materials needed. I thought I would try here before I break down and see if I can buy something at Lowe's.

Thanks

What type of shed (design) would you like? I can easily draw it on my cad and it will give me a list of materials.

Jack Sobon has plans for a timber framed structure of that scale.

Have a look at the timberframers guild or forestry forums timberframing forum.

The scale of the shed is easily scaled up or down

Lots of them here:

Also, most building supply stores can tell you exactly what it will take if you just tell them the size and style of shed you want, and the number and size of doors and windows

I try'd lowes and Home Depot, but they didn't have anything, all they did was reccomened their books up front and all the books offered was a way to order prints which are suppose to have material lists.

I wish I was close--we'd sit down a make a list.

It took me a month to figure out how many 2x4's/2x10s/length of tin for my roof on my old MH.
18" or 2ft centers?Go with that---then rafters.

And if you buy too many--many stores buy them back or you can keep them for future projects.

Was looking to build a shed at "The Place" our cabin early on....was short on time so...
Saw a small shed in town near a lumber yard.

When I asked..... turns out that the high school kids build them for practice, you just pay for the materials.

Of course you have to get it home......that turned out to be quite a deal.

To me, that design is flawed. Half the roof feeding rain water over the door.
