10×8 Shed Benefits
80 square feet gets you to a shed size that has utility beyond storage. With loft and shelf space you can have room to both store equipment and do work. Great for smaller riding mowers, snow blowers and lawn equipment. Or, set up this building to be your maker shed where you can complete projects whether you make custom jewelry, build furniture, work on drones or engineer robots. As long as you don’t have too many things that you need to store, this size can be quite functional. When using a shed for active projects, for example woodworking, you will need a workbench, a comfortable stool and light to work by, so consider adding windows or skylights. If ATVs are your thing, a shed this size can work nicely as long as you keep enough open floor space and you have doors that are adequately wide.
