The 40′ Shed Plans – 829 sq. ft.


This 40′ long, shed-roofed, modern looking design makes a sweet cottage.

Like our other Shed plans, it is cost-effective to build. It has two bedrooms on either side of a kitchen-dining-living area, and two bathrooms.

We also have a little brother to this design, The 25′ Shed, and a larger version, The 64′ Shed.

The Sheds are closed in using our suggested method (see “Our Enclosure Method” halfway down this page), and the insulation performance is well above code. The wall assembly performs at  Effective R23  – the National Building Code requires Effective R17 , or Nominal R24.

The roof assembly we recommend has been upgraded to 2 layers of 3.5” QuikTherm MPI. It is awaiting testing, but it replaces our previous 2 layers of 2.5” QuikTherm MPI that exceeded code by 25%.
