Now that you have put in all that hard work in my yard this past winter, why is your lawnmower just sitting out there looking unsightly? You bet a garden shed would be excellent to store tools in. You know, you think, a garden shed would be just the thing. Now, should you hire someone or should you try to do it alone? Where can you get some help in picking out the right plans so you can do this alone? You suppose you will need to figure out what kind of plan you need. Only you know what your requirements will be as far as what type of shed and how you are going to use it.
You have a lot of tools and equipment, so plan to have enough room for all of them. Make a list of the items you have now and try to figure out what size of an area you might need. Will you be buying additional items that you will be needing to store in the shed? Is a snow blower or riding lawnmower on the horizon? The garden shed is going to become the place to store these big items, so allow place for them.
Then where are you going to put the shed? There are two variables here, what area do you have to use and what style of shed were you thinking about. Is there more that one spot that you could put your shed at? One is tucked away in the back of the garden almost out of sight. One of the locations might be at the flower bed’s border. The one tucked away will be more difficult to get at. Either location is big enough to put the garden shed on. The style you’ve picked out for your shed will really count now. A basic style will be just fine if the shed is in the back and will not affect the way your landscaping looks. A fancy style will be needed if you put the shed out in an open spot where others may see it. You will have to keep this in mind when you pick your garden shed plans.
Try to have a approximate budget set as to what is satisfactory for you. Depending on the type of materials you may want to use may help you choose which garden shed plans you pick. different materials have different price ranges. If the plans fall into your budget range for the basic plan style, maybe then upgrading to a little better version could be possible.
Be practical when choosing your plan. You are probably going to be surprised as to just how much you are going to have to choose from. If you aren’t prudent and stick to your own plans you could get carried away quite easily. Remember to look at the pictures of the shed to make sure that it will fit in with your landscape and home. With so many choices, there will be sevaral that you’ll like. Little cottages are a big theme in garden shed. Realistically, does the plan meet all the criteria that you have set forward for your shed? Pick out two or three that you really like and see if they resolve these questions.
1. Are they the size that you need?
2. Are they the right size for your area you’ve chosen?
3. Do you need a building permit and if so, will it meet the qualifications for one?
4. Are the instructions easy to understand and simple for the novice?
5. Does it give a complete list of materials, and will these materials be readily available in your area?
If you have gotten all the proper answers, then you just need to choose the garden shed plans you like the best out of the group and get ready to work.
