12' X 12' Storage Shed on a Concrete Slab

A real foundation is necessary in many municipalities for storage sheds over a certain square footage. When you build a shed on a concrete slab, you're creating a permanent structure in the eyes of the law. Digging a bunch of holes and setting your storage shed on posts is one thing ... pouring a big concrete slab is something else, altogether.

I want to build a 12' X 12' storage shed on a concrete slab. I would like a gable or gambrel roof, a 36"X40" window and a standard 32" wide door. Do you have plans for such a building? Can you send conceptual pictures or drawing so that I cab submit it to my home owners association?

Other than my little backyard shed and barn guide ebook, I don't sell shed plans ... but I do provide plenty of pointers to some of the best shed plans that can be found on the Internet.

Homeowners associations can be notoriously fickle about designs, so you'll want to consider all your options. While 12x12 is a generous size, you might also take a look at a saltbox design with overhead loft storage to make the most of the 144 square feet of floor space.
