When buying a garden shed in 12×10 size, you’ll want to consider a few things first, including the potential need for building and other permits. Because of its size, a 10×12 storage shed may be small enough not to require a building permit in some areas. Check with your local government, though, as laws vary from state to state and even county to county.
Once you have confirmed whether a 10 by 12 shed in your area requires a permit, consider the best location to place the shed. You’ll need an area large enough to accommodate a shed, and you’ll also want to choose an area that isn’t overly shady and that drains well. If you’re buying a prefab shed, you’ll also need to make sure that there’s enough clearance for us to deliver your shed.
Choosing From Our 10×12 Shed Plans
One of the biggest decisions that you’ll need to make is whether to buy a 10×12 wood shed, a vinyl structure, or a metal one. With a 10×12 wood shed, you have several different paint and shingle color choices to choose from. Style options include:
- Dormer sheds
- A-frame sheds
- Quaker sheds
- Sheds with a porch
- Barn-style sheds
Wood sheds, with the exception of the mini barn style, also come with two windows. Customers building a 10×12 shed in vinyl or metal may also order them in this size; however, metal sheds in this smaller size must be ordered by special request. Metal 10×12 sheds also come with the option for windows, are available in 13 colors, and are built on site. A metal 10×12 shed for sale offers solid protection against severe weather, and because they are bolted down, they may also provide greater structural security.
What Can You Fit in a 10×12 Shed?
A 10 by 12 shed is fairly small, but it can still hold a lawn tractor or an ATV. You can also use a 10×12 metal shed to safely store a motorcycle. If you’re looking to create a little getaway for yourself, you can even fit a twin bed, nightstand, and small fridge in a 10 by 12 shed, or you could add a couch and a TV and create a “fan cave” for the big game.
A 10×12 storage building can serve a lot of purposes, whether you’re using it as a tool shed or a garden shed. A 12×10 space may be just what is needed to meet your gardening needs! It can be useful for storing gardening supplies such as lawn mowers and tillers, but the gardener in the family may prefer to use the space for potting or planting seedlings instead. A shed of this size also can free up space in your home by providing outside storage for rarely used or seasonal items. A 10×12 shed for sale here can be great for storing recreational equipment such as bicycles or pool toys.
Regardless of what it is used for, keeping your 10×12 shed clean and organized is critical to getting the maximum amount of use from it. Consider using hanging baskets, shelving, peg boards, and other storage and organizing tools to make the space inside your 10×12 storage building more efficient.
How Much Does a Storage Shed Cost?

The length can also be make shorter in length for same price for example we can make it 15′ long instead of 20′ long or even 10′ long also for same price but the better value is going with the standard smallest size of 12×20 metal shed.
