Sheds and or Tiny House plans
« on: March 24, 2016, 07:11:41 AM »
Is there any on here making and selling sheds or tiny house. I am thinking of doing this and I am looking for some plans. My problem is I worry about down loading free plans from the web as I don't know  what I might get with it.  So can anyone recomend a safe place to down load plans.

There are many places/sites that do what you're asking about. No shortage, that's for sure. Here's one place to start:

https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/extension-aben/buildingplans/miscellaneous (Free plans from North Dakota State University)

I've never found downloading free plans to be a problem, since they're usually pdf, or jpg files. Downloading a free program, however, is potentially another matter. You are running a good anti-viral/anti-malware program on your computer, right?

And, if you want to implement your own ideas, this site can give you a start:

But, if you're insisting on still more, then have a look here:

Good prices and many plans available at timberframehq.com, Brice is a timberframer very accessible and designs are stout.
Fall 2013 purchased Stihl MS 660 and an Alaskan 36" mill, am happy with the setup, hobbyist not a volume producer, have milled oak, hickory, yellow pine, and power poles.

Ozarker thank you for the links I will take a good at them tonight.

Pinehill4488 Thank you also for the link I will check it out over the next few days.
 I can only read on this thing for a short time and then I have to get up and do something. Rod

You're welcome, Klicker. Have a look at http://tinyhousetalk.com , too. Lots of ideas there, as well as tips for building, etc.

I'm getting ready to build a shed also.  I bought a book at Lowes that has plans for several sheds.

Side note... I made a good deal at Granger online, I bought 20lbs of 10d nails for $7.  I have to pick them up Monday.  I also broke down and finally bought a really great miter saw.  Now all I need is the wood and some time.

Also check out this video, I really like this layout.

Good video! Two things- I sheathe my walls before standing them up. Easier to do laying down, and the sheathing will automatically square them up. Also, I'd like to see a bottom member (joist) on those roof joists to keep them from spreading over time and load. I know it's just a shed, but might as well build it right.

Two sites I like for plans and ideas-

barnplans.com   (I bought my barn plans from them)

countryplans.com  (good forum there as well)
I hope my ship comes in before the dock rots!
