10 Easy Pieces: Wooden Garden Shed Kits

January 6, 2021

Imagine how useful it would be to have a big, deep coat closet in your garden. For inspiration, consider Julie’s made-from-a-kit shed in Mill Valley, California (shown in the photo above). As you can see, she has kitted it out with shelves,  hooks, and plenty of wall space for pegs.

Like a coat closet, a wooden garden shed can hold (and hide from view) all sorts of stuff you own: tools, off-duty hoses, and mucky boots. Not to mention bikes, pool equipment, bamboo garden stakes, balls of twine, and that bag of muddy dahlias you just dug up. If you’re the organizing type (and we are), you can putter for hours, putting everything in order while you wait for spring.

Here are 10 of our favorite small wooden sheds to assemble and tuck into a corner of a garden:

A Grand Garden Chalet made of western red cedar measures 6 feet wide by 3 feet deep (and is 7\2 inches high). It is \$\1,\2\29.99 from Home Depot.
