How can I build an easy lean-to shed out of scrap wood and skids?

I have a metal shed, but there isn’t enough room for bikes and stuff, so I would like to build an easy lean-to out of the scrap wood that I have around and attach it to my shed some how.

    A lean-to is very simple. I don’t know the dimensions you want but here are general considerations. Take 4×4 posts and cement them in the ground however far from the building you want. Use 2x’s from the shed to the 4×4’s. Easiest way would be to use simpson ties to fasten the boards. Use your scrap wood for runners/stringers to screw or nail the metal to. You want your roof to be atleast 3/12 for most applications. Undersized wood will require a larger quantity and steaper slope. Do the sides just like the roof and you have a lean-to. Skids can probably be used on the roof if you have enough and take the time to tear one side off of them.
