Pick Your Preferences In Garden Sheds


The addition of garden sheds on properties is not only practical, but is a good investment and will increase the property value. These versatile buildings are available in an almost unlimited selection of sizes, shapes and styles. Whether building it yourself from scratch, assembling from a kit, or contracting for one to be built for you, carefully consider your needs before getting started. Not only are these sheds great as the traditional garden or storage shed, they can be adapted and turned into portable office buildings, playhouses and even a summer beach house. Your building can be wooden, metal and even vinyl. There are many resources for storage shed plans if you are up to building it yourself. This would be the most economical option, but if your carpentry skills aren't adequate, you may want to consider a kit. If you aren't Do It Yourself savvy perhaps a preassembled shed is the choice for you. Also available are software packages that enable you to design your own.

Wooden, Outdoor Garden, Storage, Plans, Metal Sheds

An important aspect to consider is what kind of foundation will be needed for your shed. The function of your shed will play the biggest role in deciding on the foundation. If the shed will include plumbing, for example, the foundation will need to be stronger than one which will hold gardening tools. For a wooden floor, patio stones are the simplest way to create a level foundation. Although the flooring would be included in any kit, the stones or other foundation won't. However, there will be recommendations from the manufacturer as to what type of foundation would be the best. If your foundation is not sufficient to support or level the shed, you have wasted your time and money.

The type of roof you choose will also depend on the function, but will be predominantly determined by the usual weather conditions. If your area gets a lot of rain or snow, a steep sloped roof will assist with drainage. If the temperature gets really high, an overhang will help keep the inside cooler. If such conditions are not an issue and you want to increase your storage space, then a roof such as a gable or salt box will be the way to go.

As you can see, there are endless possibilities for your garden shed. You can get plans for or design anything you want and chances are there are also kits available for any of your preferences.

We have a fenced property near Pine Mountain, GA where we usually camp out. We still sleep in tents but now we have a metal shed where we store our camping gear, food and other items when we visit. It keeps out the rain and the raccoons.

I've always dreamed of having a hideaway room of my own, a cozy wooden cabin where I can retreat to and do my work. I never thought about all the possible uses for a garden shed.
