12×12 Shed Trims Plans

by Ovidiu


This step by step diy project is about 12×12 storage shed trimsplans. This is PART 3 of the 12×12 shed with garage door project, where I show you how to attach the 1×4 decorative trims to the exterior of the shed. Make sure you check the local building codes and make adjustments to comply with the local regulations. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. See all my Premium Plans HERE.
