If you decide to build your own shed, as many do for many reasons including the extra storage space, then you have lots of decisions to make to ensure that your shed building project is completed successfully.

The range of options to acquire your extra storage space will include outdoor storage sheds and the choice of wood storage sheds, metal or vinyl. Metal storage sheds such as those manufactured by Arrow sheds are incredibly popular because of the ease of assembly and the low maintenance nature of Arrow sheds.

Vinyl sheds from Suncast and Rubbermaid are also very handy solutions which are low maintenance and easy to assemble with lots of choices of accessories such as shelving, lockable doors and rigid floor frames.

Wooden Storage Sheds
Many people though enjoy the challenge of building their own traditional wooden shed and like the labor of love that goes with the feeling of achievement from finishing off a wood shed with it’s own individual characteristics and personality. Your shed’s personality and uniqueness will come from your choice of roof, how many windows, your choice of timber and many other factors.

Shed Plans
Because of the huge diversity of choice, limited only by your imagination, you can choose to build a gambrel type shed, a lean to shed, a saltbox shed or any combination of all of these. The humble 10 x 12 shed is very popular with gardeners and do it yourself buffs but regardless of the type or style of shed you go for you will do yourself a big favour by getting a good set of shed plans. A good set of shed plans should provide you with step by step instructions, an accurate bill of materials and good diagrams and/or illustrations.
