Doors are a very important element in garden shed design. Choose a wide or double door to allow large equipment, like mowers and tillers, to fit through it without a problem. Cupolas and windows provide ventilation and light. If the windows are large enough, you wont have to add electricity to your shed - though you may want to anyway as it can come in handy. Add some shelving and hooks for yard tools and accessories. Lastly, putting in drawers or bins will give you additional storage for small hand tools and gardening gloves.
Being a keen DIY person there was no way I was gonna buy one. I invested a little bit of money and downloaded a whole load of plans from the Internet. After choosing the right plans I took them to my local lumber yard where they gave me a quote from materials. It wasnt much more than the original metal shed I had wasted my money on. A few days later the shed was built and it is now my pride and joy. All my tools are safe and dry and Ive got a load of room to spare. The best thing is people cant believe that I made it myself. Its great to show off my DIY skills!
When I first decided to get a new garden shed I made the mistake of ordering a build it yourself premade metal shed. It took me about a day to construct and I knew right from the start it probably wasnt going to be the shed I wanted.
