Lean to Shed Plans - Must You Really Construct a Shed from Blueprints?

By Cole Max Subscribe to RSS | June 7th 2012 | Views:

Is it really worth building your own shed using shed blueprints? Even if you are an amateur woodworker, if you buy shed plans containing proper step by step instructions then building a shed is not that complex.

Can't you just buy a pre-fabricated shed or just buy a DIY shed kit? Well, there are some downsides to that. The biggest one is cost. These days the cost of shed kits can give you a heart attack. Not to mention that they won't always have a shed of just the right size and design to meet your specific needs. A lot of the do-it-yourself shed kits are so small that you cannot even properly stand inside the shed.

But if you buy the right shed plans you can build your own shed just the way you like it, add all the accessories you want and at the same time have a whole lot of fun while doing it. You also add insulation and make the shed waterproof to make sure it is protected from the elements and will last for years to come. Keep the following things in mind when you are buying shed plans

How personal do you want the shed to look?

Leave your mark on your shed. Make it stand out from other sheds by adding your own creativity to the designs, both external and internal. Look for shed blueprints which allow you to add and subtract accessories into the shed as per your choice.

If you are going to use the shed in gardening or for storing potted plants, the make sure you build enough rack space into the shed. Build skylights and extra windows to utilize natural light to the maximum. This will also be helpful if you are going to use the shed like a workshop.

How much do you care about the environment?

You must have surely heard about the damage lumber mills are causing to rain forest and subsequently to the wildlife and environment by cutting down trees at such a fast rate that they don't get enough time to grow back. Many greener options are available these days. If you are purchasing new lumber check that they have the FSC symbol. You could also try to use as much recycled timber as possible.

How much are you willing to spend?

You budget will decide what kind of shed you can build and that in turn will decide what kind of shed plans you must purchase. You don't want to end up getting the plans for a large shed and then realizing you just don't have the money for buying all that timber. If you are building a smaller shed but you still have a considerable budget, then think of getting more expensive high quality timber. If you want to keep it cheaper, then you could use reclaimed lumber or leftover lumber from lumber yards.

How much time do you want to save?

Make sure your shed plans have detailed measurements and diagrams. This will save you a lot time you would otherwise need to spend in guessing the missing dimensions and make costly.
