Utility Shed


Plans were slightly modified with the door placement to the side of the structure and the addition of a window. Also vinyl soffit material was used for ease of installation and to save cost. The foundation is on six poured concrete piers rather than the gravel base as shown in the video.

I'm very happy I discovered Country Life on my search for shed ideas. The plans and videos took essentially all the guesswork out of the project. I really appreciated the breakup of the project into segments complete with material lists for each. The videos were just like having Henry with me on the project. I doubt if I would have thought of many of Henry's tips myself and those tips were invaluable. Thanks Henry - the shed came out great. - Paul -

  1. Hi Henry – Yes, a video on alternate rafter ends for gutters is a good idea. I had to be a bit creative on the gutter install with the 30 degree slant. – Paul –

    Looks Great Paul! Nice on the modifications and the ridge venting. I see a gutter on the back… has me thinking that maybe we should do a video on alternate rafter ends to allow for easier gutter installation.
