This set of plans will be a detailed step by step guide on how to build your dream Queen Cottage shed.
Starting with site prep, which is recommended on a crushed gravel pad, you will get everything you need for this project. A materials list with what tools, hardware, lumber, siding, and roofing will be supplied along with a cut list for every piece. Take this cut list to your local lumber yard and get everything cut to size, or you can buy rough lengths and do the cutting yourself.
You will begin the structure with the floor framing (a very good place to start) and work your way up the building by adding the flooring next, then wall framing and roof rafters. Next comes the siding, and roofing material. Be sure to add the fascia and shadow trim to help your Queen come alive with character. Lastly you will install the millwork.
If you have any questions while building, you can always call our tech team who is happy to help. Buy the plans then realize this is too big of a project for you? If you are within 200 miles of us, we will build the shed for you then transport and offload it onto your prepped site. The possibilities are endless.
