Here are 10 easy steps to build a shed for you:

Step One
It is time to think where you want the shed to go. What sort of space do you have? Measure it out so you know what size shed you are going to build.

Step two
Time to get out your skectch pad and rough sketch what you want. You could then take your sketch to your local home improvement store or building suppliers who might help you. They will draft up your shed plans according to the specs you provide them with. Obviously, they can supply you with a list of materials that you will require. So now you have your plans.

Step Three
Once you start building your shed you want to have all your materials on hand. Your plan should outline all the materials you will need.  Your home improvement store or building supplier will help you with the purchase and delivery of all your materials.

Step Four
Time to start. Like all good buildings it starts with laying the foundation. Are you going to have a wood plank floor or a concrete slab. You will need to prepare for either choice.

Step Five
Next comes the side walls. Put your materials aside that you are going to use for this. It is better to construct the walls on the ground then lift them into position once they are together. Follow your guide for the how to instructions.

Step Six
Now its time to start the roof. You will need to build your trusses or you might purchase them ready made. For the roof itself you might get wooden shingles or tin. If you are making the trusses, construct one and then use it as a template for the rest. Once again  follow your guide on how to build the trusses.

Step Seven
Your storage shed should now be taking on some shape. Its time to build the end walls. How you do this will depend on what you have chosen in your plans. Be sure to stay with your original plans.

Step Eight
Now you are getting down to the final steps. The trim is just as important as the rest of your structure. Its what gives it that finished look so don’t scrimp here.

Step Nine
Your last two steps includes putting on the roof and treating the wood. The wood must have some type of protective coating on it to protect it from weather. You might be using paint, a stain or a varnish.

Step Ten
You’ve done it. You have built your own shed from your shed plans. Time to enjoy your shed. Step back and admire your achievement and handy work!
