6 Things To Consider Before Choosing A Shed Plan

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (68)

Choosing the Right Shed Plan For You

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (69)

If you’ve done any research already, you’ll know that there’s an insane amount of variety out there when it comes to sheds. Different sizes, different materials, different shapes.

You can get sheds that are the absolute basics, and you can get sheds that are so elaborate they’re an extension of your own home.

And it’s not just DIY sheds, there are tons of pre-built sheds out there as well. But…

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (70)

DIY Always Trumps Pre-Built

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (71)

Pre-built sheds are generally flimsy, low quality and expensive for what they are. What you gain in convenience you lose out disproportionately in quality.

A pre-built shed can cost you up to $5000 while the equivalent size DIY shed will cost you in the ballpark of $2000 depending on the materials you use, but it will still outshine the pre-built shed in terms of quality.

In our opinion, it’s a no-brainer, DIY trumps pre-built.

Shed Plans That Emphasize Simple but Elegant Design

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (74)

It can be easy to get excited and overestimate your DIY abilities when you start a new project. The passion and excitement makes you want to dream big and get creative. But blindly following your imagination can be a step in the wrong direction. If you’re a newbie to DIY woodworking, then you’ll probably want to keep it simple. Otherwise you run the real risk of ending up with a sub par build or even having to rebuild it altogether.

Both our premium and free shed plans are designed with simplicity in mind. But simple doesn’t mean plain. Using our plans you’ll be able to build sturdy and long-lasting sheds that still look good.

Determine Which Shed Size You Need For Your Project

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (76)

What’s the right shed size for you? Of course the first thing you’ll have to consider is the space that you have available. But it’s not just the space that the shed will occupy; you’re also going to need space for the construction.

The next thing to consider is what are you planning on using your shed for. Knowing this will help you decide the right shed size for you.

Are you going to use it to just store your garden tools or are you planning on using it as a workshop? The larger the shed, the more complex building it will be so keep this in mind.

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (77)

Understanding exactly what you plan on using the shed for wil l go a long way to narrowing down your options and making it easier to decide on what you’ll want to build.

But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We know that there are 100s of different reasons why someone might want to build a shed. That’s why we’ve created a whole range of different size shed plans ranging from 6×4 to the huge 16×20. Whatever you’re need, we’ve got the shed size for you.

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (79)

One last thing about shed sizes, it’s a good idea to always measure out the dimensions in your own garden before you invest any money. You can do this easily by using a couple of stakes and a string to measure out the space. That’s how the pros do it. Make sure that you leave enough room on all sides of the shed to help with rain drainage and prevent water damage.

How Do You Tell a Good Shed Plan
From the Bad Ones?

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (81)

A shed plan is probably the single most important tool when it comes to building your own shed. A plan that is comprehensive, easy to understand and takes you through each individual step in detail will make all the difference when it comes to building your own shed.

But what makes a ‘good’ shed plan? There are thousands of shed plans available on the internet.

Some of them are excellent, some are only average and most are pretty useless. It’s important to make sure at the start that the shed plan you’re using is actually high quality. Otherwise you could be half way through your build before you realize that there are steps missing or that you don’t have all the materials you need.

Every single one of our premium shed plans has everything you’ll need to ensure that building your shed is as easy as possible. With our plans you’ll get:

30 Free Storage Shed Plans With Gable, Lean-to and Hip Roof Styles (87)
