Whether you’re seeking a compact outdoor storage solution or looking to design a backyard sanctuary, a 10×8 storage shed is your go-to. This versatile shed size is an excellent pick for utility, from storing your gardening tools to securing smaller motorized vehicles like ATVs, riding lawn mowers, and dirtbikes.
However, more and more people are also opting for 10×8 storage sheds as a recreational space – whether it be a reading nook, hobby shed, artist’s studio, or meditation den. Ideal for small yards and creative homeowners, this storage shed size is sure to meet your needs.
The material you select for your 10×8 storage shed depends on a number of factors. Local climate, intended use, and budget all play a role in determining what finish is best for your portable storage building. From siding to roofing, we offer three diverse material options for our 10×8 storage sheds that excel in durability and longevity.
While our 10×8 wood storage sheds will require more maintenance, they’re also easier to match to the main structure of your home. This allows you to achieve a more uniform feel on your property.
Typically constructed out of steel, our metal storage sheds feature thick, 29-gauge wall panels. As a result, they are impenetrable, weather-resistant, and immune to denting or scuffing. For enhanced security, a metal storage shed is the way to go.
Some choose aluminum roofing due to its ability to reflect heat off the structure, keeping it cooler in the summer. However, be mindful not to place your structure underneath any trees, as falling debris and branches could dent this material.
There are several configurations you can choose for your 10×8 storage shed. Get to know each type, and you will find the one best suited to your needs. The kind you choose will depend largely on how much storage space you require, how you plan to use your shed, and the overall aesthetic of your home.
This gable-style workshop shed is renowned for its versatility, blending with all architectural styles for a structure that sits beautifully on your property. Great for first-time homeowners seeking a starter shed.
While still economical, its enhanced appearance lends itself to more specialized applications like a painting studio, home office, and more. When you’re ready to take your structure beyond storage, this is the style you’ll want to choose.
Not only does it allow space for more windows, but it also comes with oversized door options to complement its advanced utility. This combination of extra space and natural light makes the Standard 10×8 Storage Shed an ideal pick for hobbyists and craftsmen.
The dramatically-sloped roof on the Classic Gambrel 10×8 Backyard Shed makes it suitable for colder climates. Rain, snow, and debris slide easily off the structure, so that roof load is never a concern.
With proper permitting and utility hookups, you can even convert this structure into a barndominium!
Our vinyl siding is installed over an oriented strand board for increased durability. We also recommend adding pressure-treated floor joists to this structure for better weight load and heavier storage capabilities.
All of your configurations – from door and window placements to wall height – can be personalized to your liking. Choose from 16 different colors for your exterior, and let us help you choose the right siding for your purposes.

Our 10×8 storage sheds provide unparalleled versatility. On the one hand, they can serve as a storage space for all of your important tools, gardening equipment, and similar essentials. On the other, they can also be converted into an area for recreational use – whether it be a hobby farm, home office, man cave, she shed, or even just a private escape.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the cost of your 10×8 storage shed. The materials you select will be the largest contributor, with finishes like vinyl leaning on the more affordable side and steel leaning on the more expensive side. Roof type also plays a large role, with traditional, A-frame, and boxed eave roofs serving as a more midrange option. Meanwhile, gambrel-style roofs and vertical roof panels typically cost more.
Based on these factors and more, the general pricing for a 10×8 storage shed starts at $0 for a standard unit. For an entirely custom structure, this price will differ.
