THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING A SHED KIT
Our shed kits use only premium, top quality materials. All wood components are hand cut, individually inspected and hand packed. We guarantee all materials leave our workshop straight, true and free of cracks, splits other defects.
Delivered right to your door by common commercial carrier.
DO I NEED A PERMIT FOR A SHED KIT?
Whether you need a permit or not depends on where you live. We strongly recommend you check with your local building/zoning authorities and/or neighborhood association to obtain all applicable permits BEFORE buying your shed kit.
WHAT ABOUT SITE PREP?
A shed without a floor should be assembled on a wood or concrete base (or solid foundation equivalent). We recommend a shed with a floor be placed on a level surface with a 2"-3" deep bed of crushed stone. The stone will create a protective barrier between the floor of the shed and the ground. Making the stone shed pad 1' larger (on all sides) than the footprint of the shed will provide a drainage area for roof run-off. The stones will prevent water and mud from accumulating around the shed and splashing up onto the shed walls thereby extending the life of the structure.
SHOULD I BUY THE KIT WITH THE FLOOR?
When deciding whether or not to purchase a kit with a wood floor, consider local building codes and restrictions, location of the shed, what the shed is being used for and your budget.
Concrete Slab: Use as the floor or to build your shed - with floor option - on top. Most expensive shed base. If you build your shed on a concrete slab its classification may change from a "temporary" structure to a "permanent" structure depending on where you live.
Wood Floor: Will keep the items stored inside up off the ground and provide a degree of insulation. If you're using the shed as a workshop, where you'll be standing for long periods of time, a wooden floor is much easier on the legs and feet. Call us at 1-888-44-SHEDS for information and pricing on upgrading the floor to pressure-treated wood. CLICK HERE for some other points to consider.
Gravel: Works best in small sheds. Easy to install. Ideal if motorized equipment, gasoline and chemicals are going to be stored in the building because it is a lot easier to replace soiled gravel than it is to replace a stained concrete slab. Gravel is also our recommended base for the shed with the (optional) wood floor. Use 3/4" crushed blue stone (or equivalent.)
Brick or paver block: With a well-made foundation of tamped sand underneath, shifting and settling will be at a minimum.
WILL I SAVE MONEY BUYING MY SHED AS A KIT?
Maybe. Buying your garden shed as a kit may allow you to get more shed for the money, so to speak, than buying a comparable pre-built shed. If you've never built a shed before, buying a shed kit is the perfect way to go. You'll save tons of time putting it together - most everything is pre-cut and ready to go. You can probably complete the project in a day. However, if you're an experienced carpenter, you won't necessarily save money with a garden shed kit as opposed to buying the plans and getting all the components at your local lumberyard.
Add the finishing touches...
When the shed is done, finish with your choice of roofing and paint, or stain, to perfectly match your home.
... make it your own...
- - Use an exterior, latex-based paint or stain for the siding.
- - Use an exterior, oil-based paint for doors and shutters.
Ten bundles of shingles will cover the roof.
