The 5 Most Popular 6 x 4 Plastic Sheds

Now you have a good idea of what you should be looking for when shopping for a 6 x 4 plastic shed, here are five of the most popular models available for your consideration.

1. Keter Factor Large 4 x 6 ft. Garden Storage Shed

Inexpensive Yet Functional Storage

KETER Factor Large 4 x 6 ft. Resin Outdoor Backyard Garden Storage Shed

Keter is one of the better-known brands of resin sheds and offers a pretty wide range of sizes. They are also one of the more affordable brands and in general give you more than you are paying for in terms of quality.

Being a 4 x 6 shed, you aren't going to have room for a riding lawn mower, but then this shed is not really made for that anyway. However, there is plenty of room for your garden tools, kids' toys, and extra junk you don't want to clutter the garage up with.

2. Suncast BMS6310D 6-Feet by 3-Feet Shed

Tiny but Still Highly Useful

suncast_3_feet-shed

SUNCAST BMS6310D 6-Feet by 3-Feet Shed

Suncast is another very popular brand of plastic shed, this one is a bit smaller than most at only 6 x 3. However, if all you need is somewhere to store your garden tools, you probably don't need much more space than this anyway.

The one thing that truly sets this plastic shed apart is that it is 6 feet wide by 3 feet deep, which is a bit uncommon in this size range. The double doors offer plenty of room to get in and out while the reinforced floor lets you store heavier items inside.

3. Keter Manor Large 4 x 6 ft. Garden Storage Shed

Room for your Mower and More

KETER Manor Large 4 x 6 ft. Resin Outdoor Backyard Garden Storage Shed

At a full 4 x 6, the Manor offers plenty of room for your lawnmower, garden tools, and more. Made of Keter's own brand of plastic resin, this shed will never rot, rust, dent, or peel.

It also won't succumb to the effect of heat or cold and offers you a total of 113.2 cubic feet of usable storage space. What a great way to get rid of the clutter in your garage and open up space so you can park your car in it instead.

The Manor is perfect for all of your storage needs.

4. Rubbermaid Plastic Large Outdoor Storage Shed

Great for Storing Larger Items

Building a shed can be a great way to learn building techniques, develop skills, and create a sense of accomplishment. But how do you start? How tall should the walls be? Does the wall height dictate the roof style? Or the roof styles dictate the wall height?

The average shed wall height is 8’-1 1/8”. It is based on the standard dimensions of lumber and plywood cladding which is easily available, and there is minimal cutting. The precut 92-5/8” studs, 2 top plates (3”) and one bottom plate (1½”) give a wall height of 8’-1 1/8” (97-1/8”). Moreover, 8’ sheathing fits perfectly.

How the shed wall height is calculated depends on 6 key factors: storage space needed, style of roof and shed, user’s height, climate, and local laws and regulations. Yes, these are just 5 of the influencing factors. The 6th is fixed material dimensions. They all work together to determining the shed wall height. In this article, I’ll take a look at the factors that affect shed wall height, and why the average shed wall height is what it is.

Quick Navigation

What is the Average Shed Wall Height?

Shed Wall Height
The style of roof you decide upon will impact the height of your shed walls. Some sheds have walls the same height; others have one wall higher than its opposite wall. The peak-end walls are higher, so often taller doors can be placed there. Each situation is different, and each shed can be different.

Average Wall Height of Popular Shed Styles

Gable and Gambrel Roof Style
Gable Shed Wall HeightWalls are usually 8’-1 1/8” high, but can be 6’-1 1/8” on playhouse structures

  • walls are all the same height
  • lends itself to attic storage, or more headroom in the center of the shed
  • shorter doors can be in the 6-foot wall, a taller door in the cable end wall

Skillion, Shed and Lean-to roofs

Skillion Shed Walls HeighThe high wall is usually 2-feet taller than the short wall on a shed or lean-to shed; it’s often 4-feet taller (or more) for a skillion shed.

  • has a single slope that runs from a taller wall to a shorter wall
  • great for storage or a loft
  • high wall is only limited by local ordinances – if any
  • the back wall height directly depends on the front wall height and roof pitch
  • difference in height between the high wall and the short wall is usually 2 feet or more – 8’ to 6’, 10’ to 8’, 12’ to 10’.

My favorite shed runs 12’ to 8’ on a 12’x14’ shed; the loft adds almost a third more storage space. I’ve also built a wood storage lean-to from the high wall which holds almost 4 cord of wood!

Saltbox roof style

Saltbox Wall HeightThe average wall heights for a backyard saltbox shed are 8-feet for the tall wall and 6-feet for the short wall.

  • has a taller wall opposite a shorter wall
  • has an offset ridge with two differing slopes
  • extra height for storage or headroom

 

 

What are the Factors That Impact the Shed Wall Height?

Whether building the shed yourself, having someone build it for you, or having a prefab shed delivered, the first 5 factors that affect wall height also offer the most individualization.

Storage Needs

Your storage needs determine the size of shed you need. If only storing garden tools, the tool height may determine wall height.

If storing all your adult children’s childhood belongings, you may need a much larger shed capacity. The physical space available in your yard also impacts the physical size of your shed. If you can only fit a 6’ by 6’ base, but need 10’ by 10’, you may need taller walls.

Roof and Shed Style

A gable or gambrel roof usually means the walls are all the same height. A skillion, lean-to, or shed roof has a single slope, which means one wall is taller than the opposite wall.

A saltbox, however, is an offset gable roof on walls of different heights. So the roof and shed style impact the shed wall height, as well as attic or loft storage space.

User’s Height

Your height will affect shed wall height, or your head is likely to impact on something! If you’re 5’-9” and the only one likely to use your shed, why do you need a standard door height?

However, if you’re Andre the Giant, that standard door will kink your neck or break your nose. Door height is linked to wall height; the shorter your height, the shorter the door needed, and the shorter the wall required…and vice versa.

Climate

The climate in the area you reside may determine the style of roof you need, which also impacts wall height. A heavy snow area may require a shed or skillion roof to shed snow better.

A region that experiences heavy rain may need a gable or saltbox style to encourage run-off. A hot, dry climate and you may want a flat roof. As you can see, climate does impact wall height through the best roof choice for your weather.

Local Laws and Regulations

Local homeowners association (HOA) may have restrictions on shed heights and styles. Your local government may also have height restrictions too – mine has a peak height restriction of 12 feet above ground level.

If having a prefab shed delivered, the Department of Transportation has load height restrictions too – 14’-2” from the pavement to the highest point. Keep those in mind when building or buying a shed.

 

How the Shed Wall Height is Calculated

The shed wall height is determined by measuring from the bottom of the sill plate to the top of the top plate. As simple as that sounds, I’ve seen too many people forget to take into account the plates when measuring.

It is important to remember the bottom plate is usually 1½” thick, and the top plate is two pieces giving 3” of thickness. The length of the stud is cut to provide the rest of the height.

If using a builder’s precut stud (92-5/8”), which is designed for an 8’ wall, it reduces cuts and is cheaper; the wall height is 8’-1 1/8”. The wall is 1-1/8″ higher than the standard sheathing size. This works for a concrete pad or a wood floor with rim joists.

For a concrete pad, the bottom of the sheathing usually sits up 3/8″ to 3/4″ off the concrete to prevent it from getting wet. That leaves part of the upper top plate exposed.

But it’s protected by the roof overhang and allows notched rafters to sit properly. It’s also usually covered by the soffit. Additionally, any drywall on the inside walls is 3/4” off the floor too.

If building the walls are on a wooden floor with joists, the sheathing sits 1” below the bottom of the sill plate. The overlap seals and protects the edge of the wood floor deck.

It connects the walls to the rim joists, preventing insects from getting in. It also adds more strength by connecting the walls to the rim joists, reducing the chance of lift too. More of the upper plate is exposed, but again it is protected by the roof and disappears above the soffit.

Do Material Dimensions Impact Height of the Walls?

To minimize waste, cost, and time, it’s a good idea to look at the standard dimensions of lumber available. Door heights, plywood or sheathing size, header requirements for windows and doors, plus anything else that will impact shed wall height also affects the cost and how long a project will take to complete.

  • Plywood and other sheathing come in 4’ x 8’ sheets. To minimize waste, cuts, and seams, walls are usually built to be covered easily by the sheathing oriented on its 8’ dimension. However, a 6’ wall is a sheet oriented on its 4’ dimension with a 2’ x 8’ piece ripped and placed above.
  • Dimension lumber is milled to standard sizes – 2”x4”, 2”x6”, and so on up to 2”x12”. Those are the rough cut measurements before they get planed smooth and edges rounded. The 2” thickness dimension becomes 1½”, and the width dimension ½” less for if < 7” and ¾” less if >7”.
  • For the construction industry, lumber is milled in standard widths, thicknesses, and lengths. The regular lengths are 8’, 10’, 12’, 14’ and 16’, but they can be ordered up to 24’. The lengths are all divisible by 2, so it is easier to calculate other required materials like sheathing. There are two exceptions, precut builder’s studs in 2”x4”x92-5/8” and 2”x6” which are 92-5/8”. When added to the top and bottom plate thickness (3”+1½”+92-5/8”), you get a wall 8”-1 1/8” high; a perfect height for a plywood sheet to cover.
  • The standard door height is 6’-8”. It usually needs a rough opening 2-5/8” larger for the door frame and leveling shims, plus space between the door and the floor. The normal header above a 36” wide door is two 2”x6” on edge – 5½”. Add all those together, and the real height is 7’-4 1/8” (88-1/8”). It fits well into an 8’-1 1/8” wall. If you want a shorter wall, you may need a shorter door.
  • Windows are also made in standard measurements but can be custom ordered to. However, there are windows specifically made for sheds; they fit between studs spaced on 16” or 24” centers. You determine if you place them lower or higher than standard, which is typically 6’-8” from the floor to the top – it aligns with the door height.

Standardized building material sizes have a great impact on shed wall height. Deviating from the standard wall height will impact material cost, labor cost, time on the project, and waste. All reasons why it contributes to the average shed wall height.

Related Searches: What is the Best Shed Wall Height?

The best shed wall height is 8’-1 1/8”. It is an easy construct using readily available precut dimension lumber and sheathing. Minimal cuts, cost, and waste. Pre-hung standard doors and windows fit the wall height, as do insulation, drywall, and other interior wall finishes. Build it on concrete or wooden floors.

How To Build a Lean-To Style Storage Shed

8×10 6 ft High Short Shed – Free DIY Plans


This step by step diy project is about diy 8×10 short shed plans. This shed is built on a 2×4 framing and it features a gable roof and double front doors. This shed’s overall height is 6 ft and it is ideal for the area with strict local codes. Moreover, I have designed sheds with many sizes so check them out, as well. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building a free 8×10 short shed

Shed-floor-frame-8x10

Shed-floor-frame-8×10

The first step of the project is to frame the floor for the 8×10 short shed. Cut the floor joists from 2×6 lumber at the right dimensions using a good saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and align the components with attention. Make sure the corners are right-angled and drill pilot holes through the rim joists. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly. Place the joists every 16″ on center.

Floor sheets - 8x10 short shed

Floor sheets – 8×10 short shed

Next, attach the 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood sheets to the joists. Align the sheets with attention and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a neat result. Select the location for the shed and level it thoroughly. Lay and compact a 4″ thick layer of gravel. If you want to build the shed on a concrete slab, the shed will be even shorter than 8 ft.

Side wall frames

Side wall frames

Assemble the side walls from 2x4s. Make sure you cut the studs and the plates at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 16″ on center, making sure the corners are square and the edges flush. Use double plates at both ends of the wall. Fit a piece of 1/2″ plywood between the double studs.

Fit the side walls to the shed, as shown in the diagram. Insert 3 1/2″ the screws through the bottom plates into the floor of the shed. Lock the adjacent walls together tightly with 3 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes. Check if the walls are perfectly plumb and if the corners are square.

Side wall siding sheets

Side wall siding sheets

Build the exterior walls from 5/8″ T1-11 siding. As you can notice in the diagram, you need to make some cuts to the sheets so you cover the whole surface. Use 8d galvanized nails to secure the sheets to the wall frames. Align everything with attention and insert the nails every 8″ along the studs. Leave no gaps between the sheets.
