Building a Shed Properly!

Here's some good tips and practices I've learned along my shed building journey.

Building a shed isn't that difficult, but if you don't build it properly you're in for big problems down the road.  Rotting floors, sagging doors, deteriorating shed roofs are just a few of the problems you'll want to avoid.  I'll show you things you need to know with the following information to keep your shed looking great for years to come!

What's it cost to build a shed?

One of the most asked questions I get is how much it costs to build a shed.  The best way I can answer that question is to refer visitors to my materials cost sheet page on my site.  There you can download any of the materials lists I have for all of my shed plans to determine the exact building cost.

I also have a materials spreadsheet you can download.  Each item used for building your shed is linked to Lowe's or shed windows and more.com where you can see how much that item costs.  If you are interested in getting this spreadsheet please contact me and let me know.
