“A shed ramp is one of those DIY projects that is super easy to put off because it’s not immediately important. But once it’s done, you might wonder why you didn’t do it.”

A simple project with big impact

What was once a “so-so” entry to a storage shed is now a functional ramp into the little building. It was due time for contractor Mark Clement to fix it up. With the help of a little planning and some pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine, he turned the entrance of the shed from “womp womp” to “wow.”

Built to last

The strength, density, and durability of Southern Yellow Pine made this particular wood species a good choice for this wood shed ramp project. That’s because it can withstand the high traffic and big loads that might be pulled into the shed. Not only is it sturdy, but it also looks a ton better than when it was a few little concrete pavers in front.

What About the Shed?

Of course, what’s a shed ramp without a shed to attach it to? Whether you are looking to finally build a shed and get all those tools and lawn supplies organized, or you’re needing to update your existing shed, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get something durable and long-lasting.
