A shed, outhouse, outbuilding or shack is typically a simple, single-story roofed structure in a back garden or on an allotment that is used for storage, hobbies or as a workshop. Sheds vary considerably in the complexity of their construction and their size, from small open-sided tin-roofed structures to large wood-framed sheds with shingled roofs, windows and electrical outlets. The main types of shed construction are metal sheathing over a metal frame, plastic sheathing and frame, all-wood construction and vinyl-sided sheds built over a wooden frame.
