Q&A - What is the footprint for a 12x5 shed?
What is the footprint for a 12x5 shed. I have a wall and then exactly 5 feet and then a doorway and then the side of the house. I need to know as precisely as possible how much width the shed will need to determine whether I need to adjust the doorway.
The 12 x 5 dimensions are including the overhang on the shed's roof, thus the actual foot-print will be slightly smaller. All sizes are nominal and as the sheds are hand-built slight variances can occur making it difficult to provide precise measurements. If you have exactly 5ft it may be slightly close. I can appreciate you wanting to maximise the useable space, however have you considered a shed of 4ft in width?
