    Personally i would stick build a shed the size and height that you want.

    The trough idea is good. I'm still concerned about moisture buildup on the walls betwixt the two buildings, though.

    The stick shed idea was kind of an option that I was thinking of, but y'alls comments are getting me leaning more in that direction.

    You certainly have the height for a side shed roof off the gambrel and in rural areas, that is quite common on barns. Here is an idea, you could also T off one side of the existing shed. It could be a conventional roof design (dormer) that ties into the roof of your existing shed. You would have to stick build this yourself.

    You could have the carriage doors on the side of the addition away from the existing shed on the dormer end or on the same side as the existing doors. This way you only have to build three sides and a roof. Once complete, you could cut a door in the side of the existing shed to tie the two together and put in a step or two between the elevations.

    I really like that idea. Might be a bit too rich for my blood, but I REALLY like it.

    Well, the wife and I have discussed the options on a shed. We looked at it from all angles and have come up with a solution that removes all the questions I had about the type, style and size.

    We're remodelling the bathroom instead.

    By the time you finish that project, you will wish you had done the shed. It would be cheaper and easier, but bathrooms are important too.

    Best of both worlds, tell the wife you'll put a bathroom in the shed for her!
