I'm planning a 12 wide by 8 deep shed for my yard stuff. To take advantage of storage space, we're planning on going up the full 8' on the walls. Does anyone have a suggestion on pitch (gable) so this this thing doesn't look like a highrise? If I can't come up with anything I'll lower the walls, but I'd really like the extra space.

Help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

That was an option but the layout of where it's going dictates the door is on the long side. I'm still going through pics trying to make this right. Thanks

here buy 2 of these for a 8 X 14 shed.. all of the frame angles are worked out for you.. all you have to do is add the roof, sides and doors..

I'm confused. Are you planning on an 8' tall door? For an 8x12 as long as you have at least some pitch and it isn't flat you'll be fine with whatever you decide. If you go taller you will just have some extra storage overhead!

No, six foot doors. The walls will just be a full 8 versus the regular 6 or 7. I am going the tall route just for the extra storage, just need to figure out how to make it look not so "What is that?"

Someone, quick - call Rob on his cellphone and tell him someone hacked into his board account. This must be an impersonator, as there wasn't any sunshine or calm water anywhere in that brief video...

Thought about that, too. Keeping my options open, but would prefer gable...
