Being an 8x10 shed, this is an ideal size for the average backyard space which has approximately 10,000 square feet average. Placing an 80 square foot shed into a 10,000 square foot lawn will not look too odd and also will provide sufficient space for all your storing needs.


In contrast to some other larger storage sheds, the 8x10 storage shed is highly affordable for anyone looking for a quality structure for storage. You can get an Amish made wooden 8x10 shed for $2,000 - $4,000, reference prices below.

Limited Options

The options you would get on an 8x10 shed are limited to options you would be able to get on a larger shed. For example, a second-floor option would not be possible on the 8x10 shed because of the size.

Sufficient Space For Larger Items

Even though an 8x10 shed would be ideal for most backyards if you desire a large space for storage then this may not be for you. According to LP’s Shed Size Calculator, an 8x10 shed would be able to fit only about 2 fuel cans, 2 garden tools, a generator, a propane grill, a ladder, a lawn, mower, a miter saw table and a sawhorse, and a small drivable vehicle. Depending on what you plan on storing inside your 8x10 shed, you may need to explore other sizes.

8x10 Shed Options & Features

The 8x10 storage shed has many options and features that may be included for an additional cost. Some of those options may include a ramp, siding color, dormers, and cupolas or weathervanes. 

Let's take a closer look below at what these options are why you may want to add them to your 8x10 shed.

8x10 shed ramp


A ramp is a great addition to add to your 8x10 shed because it allows for ease of access for larger or heavier items on wheels. Instead of lifting the heavy items which could cause serious injury, a ramp gives you access to pull the item out of the shed freely and the same goes for putting it back inside the shed.

Interior & Electric

There are interior options you always may be looking to add to get the most out of your 8x10 storage shed. Some of these options may include a loft area, a shelve or workshop bench, and also electric! These three options provide plenty of benefits including adding extra space to store items, having a space to work at, and finally providing lighting so that you can see clearly inside of your shed at any time of day!

8x10 shed dormer


Another great addition to add to an 8x10 shed would be a dormer. Although it may be one of the smaller dormers, it still adds aesthetics and natural lighting from the sun. There are three total shed dormers from which you can choose for your 8x10 shed including the premier shed dormer, eyebrow dormer, a-frame dormer.

Cupolas & Weathervanes

The final option to consider adding to your 8x10 shed is a cupola or a weathervane. Cupolas and weathervanes are a very popular feature that goes on top of the roof. In the past, cupolas were used to provide a lookout or admit light onto an area. Weathervanes were used to show the direction of the wind. In today's world, they are typically used for aesthetics to add a more vintage look to their 8x10 storage shed.

We are very pleased with the process. The shed is well built. The purchase and delivery was outstanding. Price was competitive as well.

I had a small saltbox shed delivered recently to my newly purchased home. The man who delivered it was the NICEST guy (he was one of the owners)!! Due to having to reschedule the delivery b/c of rain, he was willing to wait 2 hours for me to arrive to the house (since I have not moved in yet and had to drive out to meet him)!

Once he unloaded the shed he really struggled getting it up the hills in my yard, due to the early morning dew. But nonetheless, he persisted and persisted, figuring out a way to finally make it work. I was so impressed with him!! And I was thoroughly pleased with the shed! Very well constructed and it looks really nice! And the cherry on top of my sunday was discovering the windows actually slide open and have screens! I think this is a great company with quality products and would definitely buy from them again! Thank you!!!

Kimberly from West Chester, PA

I ordered a shed to replace an older one that was starting to fall apart. The website was extremely easy to use and I had what I wanted identified when I called. It was very easy to order and the shed was delivered exactly when they promised. The construction of the shed was excellent. I look forward to many good years with this building.

keith mackjabee from Parsonsburg Mayland

I can honestly say my experience with Sheds Unlimited was a pleasant from our visit to the facility in Pa. to delivery.

Jim P from Whippany,NJ

The Shed is fantastic. Excellent craftsmanship. The Delivery Man was an expert in installation. He really knew his stuff. The price, also great. We could NOT have built this shed ourselves with the amount of experience and workmanship that Sheds Unlimited have. Thanks to all Sheds Unlimited Family.

Niki from Cross Junciton, VA

Seamless from start to finish. Good price, good product, good job!

Steve from Jersey Shore

Our experience with Steve Jr., Chris and Nelson was excellent. During the process of deciding to purchase a storage shed, all questions were answered promptly and completely. Our visit to your office and plant was a very pleasant experience as well. Steve arranged for the requested modifications to the shed and the shed was delivered on time and as confirmed by Nelson. The installation of our shed went also on with a glitch. We will recommend Shedsunlimited to any of our friends who might be in need of a product you provide.
Thanks again and best regards,

There was not a single interaction that wasn't outstanding with Sheds Unlimited. I was forced to delay delivery TWICE. That's an issue for a business wanting to clear space of the shed built for me, but they were VERY understanding. When they delivered, it was the exact time frame stated. The delivery guy was a family member the way he was concerned with proper placement. It was VERY difficult spot to manuever and he took his time, was very patient and fantastic attitude, in spite of the challenges. He wanted it to be placed correctly almost if not more than me!! He took time to talk about the shed, gave me the keys to my new structure and even allowed me to pay by credit card. Such a great person to work with and outstanding representative of this outstanding company. The shed itself is OUTSTANDING. Such fantastic quality built (12x8 Workshop). Paint is perfect, everything is perfect!! I could NOT be the price anywhere locally, even INCLUDING the additional cost for delivery, the price was still FAR lower than quotes near me. The is NOTHING you should be concerned about buying from Sheds Unlimited. I've already recommended them to a friend, who is about to order having seen the quality build. I would recommend them to ANYONE (who I liked!!). No worrys. Buy with confidence. Thank you so much Sheds Unlimited, for your quality build, your outstanding people and the pricing that you offer in these tough economic times!! All the best to you!

Our shed came out beautiful! You did a fine job. Ordering and delivery were
both a breeze. We are very happy with our shed and would not hesitate to
recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone! Many thanks to Ben Shue and the
young man who skillfully set it in place it for making it so easy.
