The best shades that I have come across have simple designs whether cheap or expensive. Building a shed yourself is cheaper because you save on the cost of hiring a builder. Building a shed yourself is easy as long as you have the necessary materials and follow the instructions diligently. I will take you through an easy guideline that anyone can grasp.
How To Build A Storage Shed (Step-By-Step Guideline)
- Avail of all the necessary building materials. Once you have them on site, counter-check just to be sure that everything is available before you begin.
- Once you have everything you need, prepare the ground on which your shed will be set up. Clean up the area. Ensure you pick a location that has level ground.
- On the clean ground, set the foundation of your shed. Have your lumber measured and cut them. A shed has 4 sides. Parallel sides should be equal in size. Arrange the lumber parallel to each other such that they can form a square or rectangle. Nail on the corners where the lumber intersects.
- The next step is strengthening your foundation. Arrange more lumber in between the structure of your foundation parallel to both sides of your foundation and drill them onto your foundation.
- The next part is the flooring. With the measurements of your foundation, cut the plywood and nail it on top of your foundation.
- The next thing is erecting the wall framing. Measure 4 pieces of lumber to be of the same height. Trace your foundation and mark the dimensions with spray paint. On the long parallel sides, measure and mark the middle point. Dig 4 holes in the corners of your foundation and the middle of the long parallel sides. Erect 6 lumber on each of the holes. Add one lumber in the midpoint of three sides such that it runs parallel to the foundation. On one of the long sides, add framing but leave room for one door and one window at least.
- You will then add the framing for the roof. You will use the measurements of your foundation for this. Nail the lumber on top of the wall framing. In between the framing add more lumber parallel to the ones on the sides for nailing your roof in and increasing stability.
- You can now add plywood to the wall framing to install the walls of your shed.
- Finally, have your roofing nailed into the top framing.
