A lean-to shed is a simple and efficient outdoor structure that provides additional storage space for homeowners. Unlike other types of sheds, a lean-to shed is constructed by attaching one side of the structure to the side of an existing building, such as a house or garage. This type of shed is also referred to as a “shed extension” or “attached shed.”
Lean-to sheds are popular because they are easy to build and can be customised to fit a variety of needs. They are perfect for storing tools, lawnmowers, bicycles, and other outdoor equipment. Additionally, they can be used as a workspace for hobbies or as a gardening shed.
The design of a lean-to shed is relatively simple. It consists of a sloping roof that is attached to the side of a building, with the open end facing away from the building. The shed is supported by posts or brackets that are attached to the building and sunk into the ground. The shed can be built using a variety of materials, but at Dunster House we specialise in slow-grown Spruce.
One of the advantages of a lean-to shed is that it requires less material and is less expensive to build than a freestanding shed. Since one side of the shed is already attached to the building, the structure only needs three walls and a roof. This makes it an ideal option for homeowners who have limited space or a tight budget.
Another advantage of a lean-to shed is that it is easy to access. Since the open end of the shed faces away from the building, homeowners can easily walk in and out of the shed without having to navigate around obstacles.
When building a lean-to shed, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it is important to ensure that the shed is built on level ground. This will prevent any structural issues and ensure that the shed lasts for many years. Additionally, it is important to check with local building codes and regulations to ensure that the shed is compliant.
In conclusion, a lean-to shed is a simple and effective way to add extra storage space to your home. Whether you’re looking for a place to store your outdoor equipment or need a workspace for your hobbies, a lean-to shed can be customised to fit your needs.
