How many times in life have you heard your parents or someone else tell you, “you can either do this the easy way, or you can do it the hard way?”. Most likely more times than you can count, right? Well, the same holds true for knowing how to build a storage shed.
The single biggest factor in building a new project like a wood storage shed, kids playhouse or any other kind of outdoor furniture, is having a good set of easy-to-read building plans.
Without a good set of plans you’re lost. You will be flying blind so to speak and wasting both time and money. I know this firsthand because I once did that years ago.
What To Look For In Storage Shed Plans
Not all building plans, designs or blueprints are the same. Most are so difficult to read that you either need to be a professional carpenter or hold an engineering degree! When looking for any set of design plans be sure they include the following:
- A complete materials list that lays out exactly what you need so you are buying only what you need, and not what you don’t need.
- Design plans that are laid out in a very easy to read and follow along format.
- Comprehensive, step-by-step instructions you can follow for every area of the project. There should never be any need for “guesswork”.
- Colorful design illustrations of the full project every step of the way. Being able to see what you’re doing is critical.
This type of a detailed set of plans will answer every question when it comes to knowing how to build a storage shed. You’ll be able to complete any type of project, and do it within your budget and time frame.
The end result? You will have a beautiful new shed, playhouse or other structure that was fun to build and one that you will be proud of for many years to come.
