Fold-away Shed

One of my readers sent me a note about an idea she has for a fold-away shed she wants to attach to the side of her own shed. She was having trouble drawing a picture of it, but sent me a detailed description. I got it right on the first pass, except that she’ll be building hers with a longer roof.

The idea is simple. The roof lifts up and is held in place by the doors when they swing out. Then a work table folds down and locks into the sides of the doors keeping the whole thing open and sturdy.

It seems like this would provide some really useful semi-covered outdoor space on a hot or rainy day. I can see building one of these on the side of a tiny house to add a place to do some canning or other outdoor chore. Download the Google SketchUp file.

Great idea Alice, thanks again!
