Side access shed

Turning a side entrance into a shed created extra storage for outdoor play equipment, tools and gardening supplies.





The project


Trying to make the best use of a dead spot, I created a shed to house all the bikes and outdoor toys. It saves space in the garage and tool shed.


I built this in the same way as my D.I.Y. steel shed. I used DynaBolts to secure a steel frame structure to the ground and also the side brick wall. Made sure there was enough fall for the rain. Then I installed Colorbond sheeting with basic hardware such as galvanised steel hinges, a pad bolt, rivets and roofing screws.

More side access projects


Workshop member weekenddiyer built a bike shelter and lay pavers to create a more functional and attractive side yard.




Allan turned a side entrance into an attractive and usable space by building a pergola in this project that includes paving, screening and landscaping.
