Save Money Building Your Own Wooden Storage Sheds

There are numerous lawn and garden tools that clutter up the garage and make it hard just to get the car in at the end of a long day. Wooden storage sheds provide a great alternative to store these items in a more convenient way. Unfortunately, the price of these sheds are often too expensive.

There are many options available in the do it yourself market for wooden storage sheds. Depending upon your experience level, kits are offered for the beginner to the expert. Another thing to keep in mind is that with a bit of research on YouTube and various other sites that offer videos and plans to see how much you really can or want to do. Some kits come with completely precut lumber and detailed assembly plans for the nuts and bolts. Others let you cut the wood yourself providing detailed instructions but give you the hardware for assembly. A floor is needed in most cases. Wooden platforms can be built or concrete slabs can be poured. Depending on how your foundation is built will change the way you can attach the frame of the shed.

Check the price of precut lumber compared to cutting it yourself. Don’t forget to add in the cost of tools that you may have to buy if you don’t already have them on hand. Also, you have to figure in the space needed to cut the lumber and and store it if necessary. This also has to be considered if you buy a precut kit and cannot assemble it right away.

If you do not have the room to store the lumber inside, it can be stored outside if properly covered and not stacked directly on the ground. Keep in mind that if lumber has not been properly dried and treated, it may start warping in high humidity areas.

With a bit of research, time and elbow grease, you can soon have room for your car in the garage and your tools will all be in your new wooden storage shed you built yourself.
