Ideal for Backyards

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 so happy with our tiny cabin from Sheds Unlimited. From our first inquiry after viewing their web site to the order process and the delivery, they were outstanding. Ben was amazing as he worked with us to turn a 14 x 24 ft shed into a small rustic cabin for our land in the mountains. Being in customer service, I really appreciated how he took care of us. We never felt rushed when we met with him to go over ideas and plans, and phone calls and emails were returned promptly. We never heard the word no; he said yes they can do that or how about this way? We warned Ben and Dave (who scheduled the delivery) that it would be a difficult delivery with tight turns and steep hills, but they said no problem. Nate delivered our cabin and worked through some very tight spots. As expected, there was damage to the back side of the cabin. Dave worked with us to schedule one of their carpenters to repair all the damages. And we were 4 hours away! He sent Dan who worked very hard in the heat to repair the damage and it looks as good as new. Quality construction, outstanding customer service and follow up repairs makes this a highly reputable company. We would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited if you are planning on building a shed or finishing it into a cabin or back yard retreat!

Ken from Centreville, Md

The shed arrived early on the day they said it would arrive. It took no time at all to set up. I waited 3 years to replace my old shed/chicken coop. My new chickens will love their new home, I sure do. Now to fill it with all my "stuff" Thanks guys. No one beats Amish built. No one..

Absolutely beautiful, that's the phrase all the neighbors use when they see the shed.i have been in the construction business for 25 years and can honestly say that the build and install of the shed is top notch. If your in the market for a shed , this is the best place to get it. Special thanks for the young man who placed the shed in a very tight spot, well done

Craig masayko from Garnet valley, Pa

My wife & I recently bought a "home office" shed from Sheds Unlimited.  We were very pleased with the entire experience.  Our sales rep (Ben) was excellent, taking us step by step through the process (which was very simple).  The shed itself is very sharp & well made, precisely to our specifications.  All of their people we met (the men who installed the pad and the delivery driver) were professional, courteous and very good at what they do.  We heartily recommend Sheds Unlimited.
