How to Build Your Own Shed?

If you are not good at handy-man type work then build your own shed seems impossible. Well, that was the case for me. When I decided to build my own shed, in my mind it was almost impossible. Because I was very poor in this type of work.

Questions were spinning on my head. How to design, quality materials, how to cut wood, fix them together, getting the right measurements and many more.

However, things changed when I discovered there is an easy way to build storage sheds using ready to use build your own shed plans.

I downloaded them from the Internet and followed step by step instructions. Initially it was bit hard but eventually it became easier and easier. It took me 5 days to build my first backyard shed.

Trust me, if I can build a shed you too can. Because I was even struggling to put a nail in to a piece of wood. I was that bad and hopeless in this type of work.

Always start with a simple design and a wooden based shed. When I say simple it must serve the purpose. You may find very complex shed designs. Though they are very attractive you should not go for it unless you are good at handy-man type work.

Make sure to select the right spot to build the shed. It must be spacious enough for the shed as well as for you to move around and build. Keep at least ½ meter gap between the fence and the walls of the shed if you are planning to build your shed closer to a fence.

Always build your shed on cement or concrete slab. Don’t build on normal gravel surface.

My Part-time business

Six months ago I had no idea on how to build my own shed. Now I am building sheds as a part-time business for others in the local community. It is amazing how things changed during past six months.

Who knows, with the confidence after building your own shed you too may consider starting a part time or even a full time shed building business.
