5. Determine your roof design After the frames of the walls are attached, you can start attaching the roof. A garden shed normally consists of a simple flat roof slightly leaning to either side to avoid accumulating water during the rainy season.
Building a garden shed today is easy once you have chosen a design that meets the needs and desires you are seeking. With a solid design or blue print, you can build a durable shed that will last a lifetime. The key to building a great shed is in the planning. It will also be more cost efficient if you have a solid design that you know you will enjoy.
Many people go to Lowes or Home Depot, buy their timber, equipment and tools and start building without a plan in place. This may turn into a real catastrophe and end up costing them much more than they anticipated. The goal is to first understand what kind of soil you are building on to make sure you have a solid foundation to work on. It is wise to check with the city ensure no city or county building ordinances are going to hinder your project.
It wasnt until a few days later I noticed that some of my tools and equipment were wet. As I looked up at the roof I realised it was damp. Condensation. The whole roof was covered with condensation which didnt disappear until late afternoon by which time as soon as the sun had gone down it was already starting to come back.
Another thing you need to consider is the size of the shed youre going to build. How much space you have available in your yard as well as your specific need would have to be kept in mind in deciding on the specific size of your shed.
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!
