Potting Fort Floor PlanThis little cottage was designed and built for storage and gardening purposes. A sanctuary away from the main house, set among big white pines, close to the perennial gardens. Clients have reported spending evenings on the porch sipping red wine and watching wild turkeys forage in the fields. The 12×12 potting shed plan comes with an added four-foot porch. A dormer is attached to the front and extended out over the porch.

The additional gable detail enhances the design and adds character and charm by breaking up the roof-lines. The barn sash windows give this cottage its uniqueness. The building in the picture has been finished off with special touches including optional white cedar shingle siding and a set of stairs to compensate for the slope of the site. This cottage would make a great backyard retreat, bunkhouse, or special hide away. This product can be ordered as a 12×12 shed kit, as garden potting shed plans or as prefab backyard cottages.
