  • Ovidiu on Easy Chicken Coop PlansIf you want to build a taller coop, so might as well check these plans out: https://myoutdoorplans.com/animals/4×8-backyard-chicken-coop-plans/
  • Nick Hardigg on Easy Chicken Coop PlansHi Kim! I like your ideas and am thinking I’ll do the same. You said you’d post a photo– that would be great, if you don’t mind. Thank you for sharing the modification. -NH, Portland, OR
  • Krista on 5 ft Bench with Back PlansFantastic- thank you!
  • Mary Lobdell on Goat Shelter PlansBought everything on the list.. the list is wrong.. needed 22 8′ 2x4s not 12 ..
  • Ovidiu on 12×16 Gambrel Shed Roof PlansYes, for the truss components. No for the gambrel end supports.
  • Ovidiu on 12×24 Do It Yourself Lean to Carport PlansWhat do you mean”? Can you be more specific? You can’t find 11′ ft beams that is why in the materials list they appear 12 ft for example.
  • Ovidiu on Outdoor Bench Plans FreeYes, that would be stronger, but I want to keep things simple with my plans. Not everyone can do complex joints due to lack of tools or patience.
  • Ovidiu on 12×16 Pergola PlansI have a link in the materials list for the recommended anchors.
  • Ovidiu on 5 ft Bench with Back PlansI’ve added a new diagram with the info you requested.
  • Ovidiu on 10×20 Shed PlansYou can use engineered trusses and space them up to 4′ oc. Something like in this plans: https://myoutdoorplans.com/shed/16×24-pole-barn-plans/
  • Ovidiu on Folding Sawhorse PlansSorry for the error. I’ve updated the list. Thanks for letting me know. I would love to see your project. You can send a few pics of the sawhorse here: https://myoutdoorplans.com/contact/
  • Ovidiu on 4×8 Catio – Free DIY PlansUpdated the list. For polycarbonate choose anything thicker than 6 mm (1/4″)
  • Ovidiu on Vegetable Trug Planter PlansI wouldn’t change the angle. Just cut the legs longer and the base will be slightly wider.
  • Ovidiu on 8×12 Shed Roof PlansThe rafters are cut in such way to go over the siding sheets. Install the sheets first and then attach the trusses.
  • Ovidiu on 8×12 Shed Roof Plans5 ft of snow? That’s a lot 🙂 You need to place the trusses every 16″ on center first of all. Then I would change the slope of the roof and make it steeper. There is no problem with the truss shape per se, if you use strong tie plates…
  • Ovidiu on 5×12 Pent Shed PlansDo you mean the corners? I’m not sure what you mean
  • Ovidiu on Diy Bench PlansThe top is made from 2x4s so it’s pretty sturdy. I suppose it can support 300 lbs 150 kg easily.
  • Ovidiu on 16×24 Shed PlansIf you do the studs every 16 oc, you can place the rafters every 24 oc, but the best would be to go 16 oc, as well.
  • Peter Bennett on 16×24 Shed PlansHi there. Great plans! I would like to make the walls stronger, and insulate them. I will also be installing shelves on the inside that may carry heavy loads. I was thinking to make the studs 16″ oc. Would I have to make the roof trusses match this (ie, 16″…
  • Holly Perkins on Diy Bench PlansWhat weight load will this bench support? Thanks so much for posting this!
  • Paul Mainwaring on 5×12 Pent Shed PlansHi, Very good plan, thank you. I want to do this in my garden. I have one question. Do I need to flash where the back wall meets the sides of the shed to stop water ingress? Any help much appreciated. Cheers, Paul.
  • Matty on 8×12 Shed Roof PlansCan this style of trusses handle about 3-5 feet of snow?
  • Ovidiu on 8 foot Picnic Table PlansLooking forward to that. Are you going to apply any finish on it?
  • LARGEONE on 8 foot Picnic Table PlansI’ll take a better picture when the table is in place up on our property.
  • Tom Elms on 4×8 Catio – Free DIY PlansLooks great! How much wire mess do you need (I guess in square feet) and what size polycarbonate?
