It is a great video except there is no explanation of how to build in the pitch that allows for drainage. Nor are their any tips on dimensions.
Couldn't agree with BB more. This falls far short! Roof pitch? Lumber size? Dimensions?
I have metal dumpster in the alley
Are they available yet?
Ron, when you ripped the final piece of decking for the floor, on the table saw, shouldn't you have been using the blade guard and a push stick? Safety first you know!
nice job Ron.
finally plans that work perfectly
Where can I get the plans?
As an instructional video, this falls far short of the mark! Dimensions? Lumber size? Roof pitch? C'mon man!!
Sorry but I cannot wait indefinitely for these garbage enclosure plans. I have found another website that has affordable downloadable plans already drawn which are suitable and understandable for the homeowner with basic carpentry skills. The plans provided include descriptions(dimensions, specific quantities of material needed,etc.) Therefore, I no longer require the need for this website.
Hi Ron, My question is why didn't you use treated lumber on the walls? A little more assurance that it could withstand the elements?+- Really liked how it finished up and real simple.God BlessBob
Would have liked some dimensions and a list of materials to maximize use of standard size lumber and possibly substitute texture1-11 siding vs the much more expensive T & G pine.
When will plans for this project be posted? I really would like to get started on this soon.
Great ideas... I made something similar to this. However, I used old pre-treated decking along with vinyl house sliding. Really matched my house better. Plus, I put wheels on the bottom due to mine being on cement drive-way. Made it easier to move around if needed.
Any plans forthcoming on this project? I will pay any reasonable charge.
You set bags at the curb?Around here critters are "bag Savvy" & a can with a good lid is order. This is great however to hide the cans building it tall enough to accommodate them.
How did you move this monster from your workshop to its final resting place?
awesome project, i am going to build one like that next week....for realThanks a lot guysMattson
Ship-lap is not the same as tongue-and-groove.
Great Project.....How about using T-10 outdoor plywood panelling for the sides and lids? Faster, less $ and the lid is lighter. Obviously bracing as needed. Love your site!!
Curious as to how the lid / top was fasten on?
I like the idea and it appears that it's taller in the back than in the front but that wasn't mentioned in the video. I think that would be a feature most people would want for water runoff purposes.
Looks good - you should mention that the back side is higher than the front side so that the lid is sloped toward the front for rain run-off. Also, the hinges appear to be Stanley gate hinges available at most hardware stores. (Any brand of decorative gate hinge will do.)
You don't need plans, folks! (Although several people have mentioned in these comments where to find similar plans online...) You can draw up your own based on the size & height of the trash cans you plan to use allowing room for access & can removal. All you are building are (3) rectangles (bottom, back & front), (2) trapezoids (sides) and a tongue & grove lid.
This is a simple project that you CAN build and the principles apply to both larger and smaller projects.
Great stuff as always. Keep up the good work...
Currently we are working on drawing up plans for ourprojects but it may be awhile before plans for this project are realized. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
Good luck with your home improvements,

Love it, looks great. You don't need plans, the inspiration was enough. Take this info and make your own unique version.
I started this. Its important to note, that adding the bottom base using 2x4's will make it pretty heavy along with making it a few inches taller than you may want it. If I didnt start this already and think it through first, I wouldve went with no bottom or used something thinner and much lighter.
Still no plans for this? Disappointing. Not all of us are pros, so it would've been nice to have plans to follow.
