With a little imagination a shed can be transformed into a playhouse, chicken coop, greenhouse, or home office.
The second thing you should think about is square footage. Think, for instance, about the difference between a 12×12 shed and a 12×16 shed. Glancing at the numbers, it’s easy to think of them as about the same size, but remember to think in terms of square feet. Those four extra feet of length add 48 additional square feet! .
Every shed comes with shingles and one shed door, your choice of size. As an Option: you can Upgrade to a metal roof and double doors. Of course, you can add Windows, Vents, Steel doors, Shelves, painting, etc. and can place them where you would like.
Use 2×6 lumber for the posts. Cut the posts at the right dimensions and attach them, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
All the same materials used for roofing on your home can be used on your shed as well. Many people like to clad their sheds in similar materials to their homes to give their property a more cohesive look. However, to save costs, choose a flat roof for your shed and clad it in less expensive materials. Below are some of the most common materials for roofing a shed and their average cost per square foot.
Brick sheds may be built with a wooden frame and then clad in brick or, in rare instances, be built of nothing but brick with a timber roof. In either case, they can be customized or finished in a wide variety of ways. Brick is expensive to work with, even with a wooden frame, so expect to pay about $24,000 on average.
The helpful thing about going with a high-quality and trusted brand is you know whatever you choose will look and perform as expected. If you can’t find a demonstration of the shed or storage box, you want it would still be worthwhile to order it online. Depending on the site shipping may be inexpensive or completely free with a minimum order amount. Buying a storage shed, or even a deck box, is likely to exceed whatever minimum purchase amount is required if the company does offer free or reduced shipping for large orders.
